Gather important data about your engines performance, and tune your rig to adjust to your driving style. Enhancing your drive quality will be easier with being able to track progress, and monitor your power with the tuners and programmers. Pair your tuners and programmers with other accessories and take a look at our exhaust kits or F150 towing upgrades. Ford F-150 Fitments: 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 Ford F150 with 5.0L V8 engines. Submodel Fitments: FX2, FX4, King Ranch, Lariat, Limited, Platinum, STX, XL, XLT. Some Exceptions apply, please see individual product pages for specific fitments.
That being said, combining a few F150 performance parts with PCM tuning is going to get your truck the best results. Our "Phased" performance packages are a perfect example, and we have even have dyno results from testing our F150 Phase 1 and Phase 2 kits on our 2012 FX4 Project Truck. Our Phase 1 kit includes an aFe Stage 2 Cold Air Intake, aFe Cat-Back Exhaust Kit, and an SCT Livewire Tuner and Dash monitor with SCT's "canned" performance tunes. The Phase 1 kit added 18 horsepower and 8lb-ft of torque to our truck's crankshaft on low-grade 91 octane gasoline.
While the Phase 1 kit was decent, we needed to give our project truck some more kick, so we got our Phase 2 package installed as quick as we could. Our Phase 2 package comes with same intake and cat-back as our Phase 1 kit, but also comes with a 2011 to 2014 F150 5.0L BBK 85mm throttle body and a Livewire tuner that's pre-loaded with custom tunes from 5-Star Tuning. On our truck's dyno run with the Phase 2 kit, gained 31 horsepower and 19lb-ft of torque on low-grade 91 octane gas. While the BBK throttle body probably helped, 5-Star's custom tune did the grunt work and got our truck most of its gains, not to mention improved drivability thanks to alterations in the transmission software.
