Thanks so much for the info, I reached out to Adam today and he got back to me in about 2 minutes and answered a ton more questions I had. I'm thinking of getting the Borla exhaust, Whipple IC and SPD downpipes along with the e50 and 93 tunes. Should give me around 475 HP.
More like 475hp to the wheels. Should be about 550-580hp to the crank with E50/E85. Even Livernois has a vid up of theirs on E40 and stock intercooler pulling off around 560hp to the crank.

Like I have said before...Dyno data is useless except as a diagnostic. Proof is in the numbers on the street. ZFG 93 is capable of a faster 0-60 than a E30 LMS tune. Peak Dyno numbers don’t always equal the best time on the street...

I can tell y’all without a shadow of a doubt...you need the Whipple intercooler if you wanna go fast. The stock one is a joke. View attachment 2140
Agreed on the intercooler! I’m on ZFG’s E50 with the Whipple intercooler and it made a huge difference. Power was dropping off before the intercooler.

I’m on a ZFG E50 myself. Best 0-60 I’ve hit so far is 3.8, but a friend has hit 3.66. I only referenced the Livernois dyno run because it’s WELL above the 475hp mark. Agree 100% on the street/track times. Just as many factors change those street/track times also. My buddy running that 3.6 has the launch down to a science.

That friend live in KC? I was the first to get below 3.8 on a Stock E50 Tune only ST, my best is 3.72. Still stock. Not sure if anybody has done better than that on a Stock ST.

Hey I'm new here...just picked up my ST 5 days ago...have about 175 miles on it. Even before I got it I was looking into possible tunes but haven't really found any information to help me decide which company to go with. Livernois, 5 Star, Palm Beach...how to decide?

Regarding the warranty conversation...couldn't you just put the stock tune back on before bringing in?
Too Tall,
Im not an expert but i can tell you that my sled "Blakout" is a beast. Its on an E50 Tune and we break hearts and crush dreams all over NTexas.

Hp tuners does not leave a foot print, but it does reset the key Cycles since last start. That's what ford looks for.

So if someone were to do a tune very early in the vehicle's lifespan, say 300 miles, and it resets the key cycles, if you bring the vehicle in for service at 10,000 miles without reverting to stock, would they be able to tell?
