2015 5.0 performance upgrades

Not too much info on-line regarding performance upgrades for the 2015 5.0 so I figured I would ask around here. I am unsure where to start- the SCT on my 09 5.4 really woke the truck up , but I don't see the kind of performance improvement numbers with the tuner on a 5.0 vs. The 5.4
Already did the cat-back exhaust and looking for recommendations on ways next. I'm not looking for improved gas mileage, just more power...

Basics are always Intake, Exhaust, and tune. A proper tune, not a canned tune, will really wake up any vehicle after the intake and exhaust.

A tune will wake it up. Not that a 5.0 isn't already awake compared to a 5.4.

There's a guy from BC on another forum I frequent that custom tuned his 15 5.0 and it's a rocket ship. I believe it was an SCT from 5star tuning out of the states.

I am happy with the Stock performance of the 5.0L in my Truck. Put her in Sport Mode and she really goes.

That looks like a sweet deal. Comes with the boss intake and a cai as well as the tune. 50 + hp??? Hell of a good deal!! If it weren't for the damn dollar I would order right now..anyone know of a Canadian company that can do this same sort of thing?

Im sure you can get the boss intake thru Ford. But the Cai and the tuner and the special tune to use it optimally will need to be custom.

2015 5.0 performance upgrades

I know Craig aka bossf150 did the boss intake, cai and tune package on his '12 . Pretty sure he was happy with it. Other then wanting to supercharge it. Lol


For about $7500-8000 USD you can supercharge it.
