Awesome Tuning Package that Includes an nGauge Device and 5-Star Custom Tunes
The 2019 Rangers and their 2.3L EcoBoost 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 2019 Ranger 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 Ranger's OBD-II port and easily uploads your choice of 5-Star custom tune to your 2019 2.3L EcoBoost Ranger 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 Ranger'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 comes with a MicroSD card that it uses to store and transfer files back and forth to your home PC and uses HP Tuners's MPVI interface to upload tunes to the device or download datalogging information.
Select Tunes by Octane and Performance
5-Star's tunes can turn up your 2019 Ranger 2.3L EcoBoost's boost pressure while adjusting its fuel curves, ignition timing, fan control, and a ton of other variables so that your Ranger 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.
The 2.3L EcoBoost's factory tuning leaves plenty on the table for 5-Star to work with and really transform your Ranger. The average baseline power output of 5-Star's test truck at stock 93 octane was about 256 horsepower and roughly 281lb-ft of torque. With 5-Star's powerful 93 octane Performance tune, that same 2.3L EcoBoost truck put down an average of 312 horsepower and 369lb-ft of peak torque. That's a gain of 56 horsepower and 88lb-ft of torque over stock at peak increase. Most impressively is that the maximum gain in peak torque took place at 3450rpm, where stock torque sat at a measly 281lb-ft, giving you a big bump in pulling power and off-the-line performance without the turbo lag and hesitation of the factory tune. In additional testing, the tuned Ranger performed a 0-60 MPH test in only 5.49 seconds while the stock clocked in at a significantly slower 7.44 seconds with the same test conditions and constraints. The power gains are paired up with greatly overhauled transmission shift points and shift pressures which take most of the sluggishness out of your 2019 Ranger and let you really enjoy its improved power output.
