That's why we grabbed this:
Say hello to our newest project truck, a 2012 F150 3.5L EcoBoost FX4. This truck combines the best of both our previous F150s with the immense power and capabilities of a Ford 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine stuffed into a capable 4WD drivetrain and loaded down with the glorious creature comforts of an FX4 submodel. This is basically Stage 3's dream truck, and we plan on transforming this thing into a monster that looks mean on the street, but can also handle any and all terrain we can find here in the great state of Arizona. We plan on having a ton of fun with this F150, and we're bringing all of you along for the ride.
Just like all of the project vehicles that we've had here at Stage 3, our 2012 FX4 EcoBoost couldn't stay stock very long, and the very next step after the accessories was to bring on the horsepower and torque. While the EcoBoosts respond decently to bolt-on parts, the real key to unlocking their massive power potentials is custom tuning. We grabbed a Livewire TS loaded up with 5-Star custom tunes, along with a couple of different cold air intakes, and got to works stacking on some awesome power gains. Along with the power, we also wanted a more aggressive exhaust note, so we grabbed one of our favorite cat-back kits in our extensive arsenal and got it bolted on so that our truck sounded as fast as it looked.
