Don`t dyno a echoboost

buddy at work bought a 2014 echo boost top of the line fx4 or something. took it to our buddy at diablo sport (the owner) and he wanted to see the HP/TQ #`s no tuning all factory. the only thing that was remove is the speed limiter (cant get enough speed to work the dyno with the factory limiter) not sure what #`s he saw but the crank snapped. he is hoping the dealer will take care of this. sucks to be him...

Hoping indeed. Sounds like he is outta luck. Some people just can't seem to be happy with things as they are.

JevanB stated the truck was stock...just running it on the dyno for real world HP/Torque ratings to compare to Ford's advertised #'s...it's ashame ANY stock truck should break under this simple test

I hope things work out OK for your friend. I think if the dealer checks the Event Data Recorder your friend will be SOL.

There must be a reason for speed limiter...........

Why would he need to remove the limiter, the dyno should be able to give readings though the whole range at least the one I use to operate for GM did each gear and at all recordable RPM's.

The reason its in place is so you don't go over 100mph at any whim/ drunken state you want.



As long as the "rev" limiter wasnt raised/ removed the speed limiter shouldn't affect anything but a higher speed.

Correct?

So the speed is limited to 100mph removing it to go 120 should have no Ill affect as long as the engine isn't above max rpm .

Right?

the engine needs RPM to spool turbos and with rpm comes MPH , kind of hard to get them to light without it. I see over 100 trying to get mine to light the top charger. it would be worse without the VGT on the bottom.

true, I guess they needed the MPH, funny thing he let them have the truck while he was on travel, but I bet daddy will pay for it if the factory will not. his last project is a Z06 with 675hp
