I know nothing about tuning or modding cars. What’s a tune typically cost? $100, $1000? I was reading about a new air intake mod and exhaust upgrade but the comments also recommended a tune. I have no idea how expensive something like a tune would run.
depends.. you can go with a gimmicky device like a Pedal Commander for a few hundred bucks... you can go with a Cobb tuner and 'off the shelf' (pre-loaded) tunes for about $450, or you can go with a Cobb Tuner and a 'pro tune' ($450 for the tuner and then probably another $400 or so for the tuning process), where you do a data log of your vehicle in stock form, send the data log to your tuner, they evaluate how it's running, what kind of fuel you run, and other factors - then they create a custom tune that they email to you - and you install it on the tuning device, and then upload that to the vehicle.. then you do another data log, send the file to the tuner so they can see how your vehicle has responded to base tune, and they tweak the tune and send you an update.. this process can continue 2-3 times until the tuner is satisfied ... of course, things like upgraded intercooler, waste gate actuator, intake/exhaust, charge pipes, all affect the tuning process too

thanks -- no it doesn't affect my life, it just is frustrating when I go on here and try to have a respectful, interesting conversation on-topic, and 60% of people are jerks.
So, its pretty much not worth it to me to weed through the crap
I get that you’re frustrated. I get frustrated, too, wading through a lot of the shit that gets posted here, but you need to figure out where and when to engage, like I had to do for my own sanity.

Let’s review… (1) you’ve already been perma-banned once; (2) after you create a new account, you visit a “0-60” thread for a Bronco Sasquatch “race car” (troll city); (3) you take some pretty stinky bait from a 2-post-wonder (obvious troll is obvious), and (4) you react poorly when someone trolls you back with a funny, Talledega Nights quote, which ironically is actually on-topic for this thread. 🤷‍♂️

Do you recognize a pattern here? So figure out where to go (and where to avoid), when to engage (and when not to), and how to use the tools at your disposal (e.g., thread ignore, member ignore) to make participating in the forum a more productive experience.

Personally, I’d like to see you stay, if for no other reason than to torture the trolls that so desperately seek your attention by simply depriving them of their basic needs. I think you can do it! 👍

thanks for helping me engage in some self reflection.
well see, maybe if I'm bored enough - but really all the info is out on the Bronco now so.... this forum is sorta dead until the vehicle is released and it has one SEMA under its belt.
have a great weekend -

2.7 F-150's run mid to high 5's all day long. I understand gearing differences, tire size, weight... Just saying.

Was that with the Sasquatch pack?

Traction control did go on a few times. I also was in normal mode, and it was wet/raining.

We are planing on getting a Offical Dragy on a dry road this week.

This was all I had time for this morning.

Thanks
Keep em coming us non-haters are greatful.

Looks like the shift points were at a very low rpm. I wonder what goat mode it is in? My 2.7 f150 in sport mode shifts at a much higher rpm. I thought the 2.7 didn’t have turbo boost on the display.🤷‍♂️

I wish they had 60 to 80 tests. Something to simulate high speed passing situations.
I think they are waiting until the engine is broke in before they perform those high speed passing test 😂🤣
