Awesome Tuning Package that Includes an nGauge Device and 5-Star Custom Tunes
The 2018 F150s and their 2.7L EcoBoost V6 may churn out impressive power, but there's plenty more that can be unlocked with these nGauge and tune package from our friends over at 5-Star Tuning. This awesome tuning package comes with an E-Motion nGauge device that's loaded up with your choice of up to five 5-Star custom tunes that give your 2018 F150 a huge bump in horsepower and torque output, while also adjusting your truck's shift points and transmission functions for vastly improved drivability. The nGauge device hooks right into Raptor's OBD-II port and easily uploads your choice of 5-Star custom tune to your 2018 2.7L EcoBoost F150 in practically no time. The nGauge can also display just about any information your Raptor outputs through its OBD-II port as a handy gauge so that you know exactly what's going on with your aggressive F150's turbocharged engine.
Powerful and Ergonomic nGauge Tuning Device
The nGauge is a powerful OBD-II programmer that can upload tunes, display important engine running information, and read and clear DTCs all in one thin, compact device. The nGauge was carefully designed to fit into most standard-sized gauge pods and take up as little room as possible while still have a legible screen. The nGauge uses an included stylus for use with its screen and navigating its menus. The nGauge has a programmable shift light and can datalog just about any engine parameter that you have in mind. The nGauge connects to your home computer using an included USB cord and uses HP Tuners's MPVI interface to upload tunes to the device or download datalogging information. Alternatively, you can use the nGauge's integrated MicroSD card to transfer and store information.
Select Tunes by Octane and Performance
5-Star's tunes can turn up your 2018 F150 2.7L EcoBoost's boost pressure while adjusting its fuel curves, ignition timing, fan control, and a ton of other variables so that your F150 makes huge amounts of horsepower and torque. 5-Star's custom tuning even takes into account tire size, drivetrain, and axle ratio so that your truck operates perfectly with your choice of tune. 5-Star's custom tunes are available in several variations for 87, 89, 91, or 93 octane gasoline to give you a wide range of tuning options. 5-Star's Performance/Tow tunes even do double-duty as Economy Tunes by tapping into your F150's driving modes. When you select Economy Mode while using a 5-Star Performance/Tow Tune, the tuning automatically adjusts its shifting, timing, and other parameters to maximize fuel economy, making the Performance/Tow tunes two tunes in one.
5-Star Dyno Results
5-Star's custom tuning for the 2018 F150 2.7L EcoBoost trucks adds nice power gains all through the RPM range and helps the truck carry more horsepower higher into the rev ranges. 5-Star's test truck put down roughly 310 peak horsepower and 374lb-ft of peak torque on the stock tune using 87 octane fuel. That same truck threw down roughly 360 peak horsepower and 434lb-ft of peak torque
using a 5-Star 93 octane Performance tune for gains of 50 horsepower and 60lb-ft of torque
with a tune alone. What's more impressive is that 5-Star's tuning carries a bunch more horsepower higher into the rev range than the factory tuning without any dips in the curve, meaning you get a clean feel and acceleration through your truck's entire power band. Even 5-Star's Performance/Tow Tunes provide impressive gains in many of the same ways as the slightly more powerful Performance tune and still carries excellent power through 5000rpm and beyond.
