Ford is on an induction free of it EcoBoost engine in every automobile it manufactures. The Ford Racing also wants them to be refreshed or to update the software and calibrate the ECU with the Ford specifications using a Ford Racing ProCal handset. This handset connects with the vehicle’s controls and diagnostic ports and manages the different variables such as the idle speed, throttle mapping, fuel curves, waste gate control, timing of ignition, etc.
The emphasis is more on the tweaking of the electronics than adding parts to the engine. This also gains decently without hampering the drivability in any way. The change is not like bolting a new intake into the vehicle or fixing a hotter camera and at the same time it is not even expensive as it only implicates the purchase of a handset costing a mere $595. Using the Ford Racing calibrations also won’t negate the warranty. By fitting unsupported parts from aftermarket sources, you would be S.O.L.
By u sing the ProCal setup an owner of the Ford can expect an increase of 90 lb-ft torque which cannot be termed as a small gain. So far no clarity from Ford has come up with the likely bump of the 1.6 L engine of Fiesta ST and the 2.3 L EcoBoost four-cylinder when connected to the ProCal. We just hope that the increase is in line with what the Focus ST is offering them.
After all is if you are still not bothered about your warranty being void then Ford Racing is happy to sell whatever your requirement warrants. Ford is not fishing for warrant claims, but it has been exploring third party part supply aftermarket options from suppliers to suit the EcoBoost components and particularly the Mustang. If you hear the aftermarket supply death, then the subject is being exaggerated greatly.
