If he doesn't see this you can message member @Ace Holliday. He has the FP tune and also just got the Livernois tune so he could give you a good comparison.

I have used the FP Tune for about 6 weeks and have dyno numbers on it. It is a substantial bump in performance. Makes the truck so much more fun!
I just flashed the Livernois 91/93 Performance tune a day or so ago and only have 80 miles on it. No dyno yet but I will get that done within the next couple of weeks.
I can say the truck is a beast in Sport Mode with the Livernois tune. Shifting is firmed up and the shift point is increased to redline. Traction would be an issue if I was on a track. The truck will surprise a lot of folks! Especially mine with the stock wheels and tires.
I hope to get some miles on it this week. I want to dyno the Towing tune as well. Hoping it has a lot of low/mid torque. I'll probably use the Towing tune as my daily.

I think I'm going to flash the tow tune this week. I'd like a little more low-mid, actually I'd like a lot more lol but this tune is very impressive.

I owned a 2018 Ford Explorer with a 2.3 ecoboost. On Ford's website it stated the HP/TQ numbers as 270/310 "when used with 93 octane fuel." I used high octane and a K&N replacement air filter. The explorer ran much better, although I don't have any scientific evidence of this.

When I got the 2020 Ranger, I did the same thing; used High-Octane fuel and replaced the air filter with the K&N. It performs very well.

I recently installed the Ford Performance tune. It seems to perform as well, maybe.... just a little better than stock and high-octane fuel.

If the Ranger is 270/310 hp/tq with regular unleaded, then with an upgraded air filter and high-octane fuel, it improves that number noticeably. Adding the tune is a marginal improvement over this.

There is still a certain lag when you stomp down on the accelerator. There are electronic devices that can be installed to the pedal to overcome this "delayed" response. I'm thinking about getting one, but I haven't decided.

I've posted extensively about the Ford Performance package elsewhere on this site, so I'll be brief.

Besides the Ford tune, I have their performance exhaust system, and the Roush cool air intake unit (if you can call it that). Corrected to SEA LEVEL, dyno-measures HP hovers around 345 HP, depending on the temperature, and the fuel being burned at the moment (all E10—variations in Reid Vapor pressure if nothing else). The torque corrected to SEA LEVEL, is almost 400 foot-pounds. If I do everything correctly (a bit of torque load on the converter), the 0 to 60 (according the my Draggy @3,500 altitude) is just under 6 seconds. That relates to about 5.4 seconds at SEA LEVEL, or about what other tune programs offer. The difference is, the Ford Performance tune is covered under warranty!

What's the stock number of the K&N filter?
