Ecoboost Mods

Has anyone on here modded their Ecoboost truck, and if so, what did you do? I know there's a lot of controversial stuff floating around about modding them, and the dealer won't give me a straight answer.

yeah i have read that even covering the hole beside the licence plate with a grill can cause warranty grief.
i think that they have to prove that the mod caused the problem for the warranty to be void.
what dealer did you buy it from, have you been talking to?

all I have seen is tunes, cai, and exhausts. I read that you cannot lift ecoboost trucks either.

Can't lift them?
your not supposed to lift any truck VIA warranty guidelines..
HOWEVER..
A suspension lift is def available for it. and many have lifted there's.

There is a dealer i believe in Orangeville, On that if you purchase a truck from them with a lift package it is included in their warranty.. 3yr.

I'm still itching to get a intake for the truck. My dealer said the only intake they'll warranty is the Roush intake...but looking at the design, I think it's inferior to the Injen.

LOL! +1
And if they use it as a work truck, they'll park it as soon as they spot the first mud puddle, and walk the rest of the way to a site. As God is my witness ...

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
