    First engine mod ideas?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hello all, finally looking to start with the power mods. Just going to keep it mild at first so here is what I have put together.

    Damond OCC
    Whoosh FMIC
    ST 200 intake w/Whoosh intake pipe and Ram air filter
    Stratifed Accessport or Tune + tuned for the above.

    Any other suggestions for this would be appreciated. Not really looking to do a DP at this time simply because I have read where the exhaust on this car is fine until we upgrade our turbo. I am really just going for the most bang for my buck power mods first, as the car is plenty fun as is.

    Only "power mod" to date is I have deleted the resonator on the exhaust lol.

    I have read the beginning power mod guide as well, just thought there may be some other ideas out there floating around outside of that.

    Thanks for looking.

    I would just stick with intercooler and tune and the catch can to possibly prevent intake valve carbon buildup, that is where 97 percent of the gain will come from, save the rest of the money for suspension or wheels ect....

    That's a good place to start. Catch can is a good idea to prevent build up and you'll get the most bang for your buck with an accessport. Stock box is pretty good as far as intakes go. The injen I have pretty much is only for sound.

    I'd add a rear motor mount to that list.

    Thanks for the replies. As far as the RMM goes I have the CPE currently. After doing a bit more research looks like I will go with Tune + on the tuning part of things when I proceed with power mods.

    Any other thoughts or comments are welcome.

    Thank you

    It sounds like you're going for the same goals I am, which is a stock turbo build in which you get the best bang for your buck for performance gains and overall fun.

    Based off those parts you mentioned and since you're planning to get an aftermarket intercooler, I would recommend you consider a used Short Ram Intake such as Injen or another brand. They're probably much cheaper than every other intake option and should still net you some gains. Best part of all is the wonderful induction noise you'll gain from it, which is absolutely beautiful.

    Most people will say that with a Short Ram Intake sucking it hot air from the engine bay will actually be worse performance, but from my research an efficient aftermarket intercooler effectively brings the intake air temps back to ambient levels anyways. No intake can bring your temps below ambient temp level, so the price savings and beautiful sound an SRI makes becomes a real benefit here over the other options.

    That's what I currently have installed on my car, I got it for $120 but I had to purchase a Woosh motorsports adapter for it not to throw any CEL codes since I have a 2016+ model. The sound is great and the throttle response is improved, and butt-dyno says theres a few HP gained in there. Compared to the other intake options, besides the improvement in induction noise, the best part is I didn't have to spend much money for it.

    IF you have a little more budget i add a RMM and a crossover pipe to that list. But the main ones are there already, the AP and the FMIC ;)

    I'm not sure you gain enough with the ST200 to justify its cost over just putting a Cobb or Mountune (K&N style) flat panel filter. I have not seen anything definitive, as in back to back dyno runs with the same car on the same day. I would be interested to know if that data is available.

    I have an Injen intake with a snorkle and can confirm it does nothing but make noise.

    Your best bang for buck first mods are going to be Cobb AP, RM, drop in filter, followed by an intercooler. You can often find those first 3 as a kit and save a few bucks that way.

    I'm wondering why Ford would waste development money if it didn't.
