Hi i want to make more boost from my turbo on my
2013 ford fusion eco boost ...if was able to do so
what would i do and how thank you
Yes , you can do it just remember you can DESTROY the engine quick If your not worried about that.. Then here's how to do it average boost is 15-17 psi. IF you decided to remove the 2.0 boost control solenoid and want to run higher boost than the factory wastegate, i.e. if you wanted to run 18 psi vs. 12 psi that was the factory wastegate setting it can be attempted. The CAN-BUS system is really in control with the computer and will try and maintain factory engineered Maps (fuel and timing) and run the show..Guys think a "chip" is going make a HUGH difference, NO. A different turbo and AR / ratio and compressor SIZE, Review turbo maps and where the (peak eff, island) is located, will increase FLOW turbine speed spools up faster more boost, quicker, CHRA 195,000 Rpm Ok, If you really want POWER everything needs to be changed BUT for $6000 you can build a solid Fusion 2.0 345HP... that will last with the correct engine management and all sub systems, Dyno tuned! OR you just GET A V8 NA. I KNOW, everybody likes something different. Regards
Ford de-tunes the Fusion ecoboost engines significantly. This is the case for both the 1.6 and the 2.0 mainly for fuel economy and driveability. The stock components can be pushed up to 23psi peak using either controllers (not my favorite way) or via a retune of the ECU (there are many vendors that do this). A re-tune on a stock 2.0 can gain up-to 50hp, which is honestly the biggest bump I have seen for a tune on a stock setup short of a few more sporty turbo V6's. The biggest concern is the stock BPV. You will want to upgrade before getting a tune as stock is simply a bit of plastic and rubber with a spring. After that Auto_centric is pretty much right on, there are many bolt ons available and you can easily get the car up to 320-350hp with enough money. You can do things cheaper if you are willing to wrench, look for deals (which are often if you know where to look) and bribe some machine shop techs ;-)
