Diablosport Adds Big Power to the 2015 Ford F150 EcoBoost
In the world of plug and play engine performance calibrations, there are few companies that can compete with the folks at Diablosport so when I heard that they had launched their packages for the 2015 Ford F150 EcoBoost engines – I had high expectations. Based on the advertised figures for the Diablosport 2105 F150 EcoBoost engine, these tuning packages are sure to meet the expectations of even the pickiest truck owners.
The Diablosport Trinity
If you are unfamiliar with the Diablosport brand, it is one of the key players in the aftermarket tuning, diagnostic and testing computer segment. Their Trinity plugs into your car or truck’s OBD port and from there, the touch screen allows you to upload any of the preset engine performance tunes, but you can also make slight adjustments of your own to air/fuel mixture, cam timing adjustments, spark timing adjustments and much more. The Diablosport Trinity also adjusts the shift points and the strength of the shifts, which is often the most important features for many vehicles.
In addition to adding performance and fuel economy capabilities, the Diablosport Trinity also allows you to measure performance times (0-60, quarter mile, etc) and should you run into a problem that causes a check engine light, this product is also made to read those codes.

Today, Diablosport announced that the Trinity tuning system is now available for the 2015 Ford F150 pickup with either the 2.7L or 3.5L EcoBoost V6, bringing significant power increases to both twin turbocharged engines with five different preset modes.
Diablosport F150 2.7L EcoBoost Tune
First up, those 2015 Ford F150 buyers who opted for the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 – the segment’s most efficient gasoline engine – will enjoy all of the diagnostic benefits of the Trinity plus power gains ranging from 30-40 horsepower and 60-70lb-ft of torque. In Towing, Mileage or 87 octane performance mode, the Diablosport 2.7L EcoBoost tunes add 30 horsepower and 60lb-ft of torque while the 91 and 93 octane performance modes adds 40 horsepower and 70lb-ft of torque. Mind you, these numbers are all “at least” figures, so actual numbers may vary. Diablosport states the power gains at 30+, 40+, etc.
If we look at the minimum gain numbers for the Diablosport 2.7L EcoBoost V6, the stock numbers of 325 horsepower and 375lb-ft of torque rise to roughly 365 horsepower and 445lb-ft of torque. Those are some serious numbers for the smallest of the available F150 engines and in my experiences, these power gains generally don’t have a big negative impact in fuel economy, so in gaining this extra power, you won’t have to give up your strong fuel economy.
Diablosport F150 3.5L EcoBoost Tune
In stock form, the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 is the strongest engine in the 2015 F150 lineup, packing 365 horsepower and 420lb-ft of torque, but for those people who want even more power from their segment-leading twin turbo V6, Diablosport has the answer. Their new tune for the 2015 F150 with the bigger EcoBoost V6 adds 70+ horsepower and 100+lb-ft of torque with the 93 octane performance tune – lifting the total output up into the range of 435 horsepower and 520b-ft of torque. The 2015 Mustang GT with the 5.0L V8 has 435 horsepower and 400lb-ft of torque.
Even if you don’t want to run high octane gas in your 2015 F150, the Diablosport tune can still add big power to the 3.5L EcoBoost. The 87 octane performance mode, Towing mode and Mileage mode all add 50 horsepower and 70lb-ft of torque so even when it has been tuned for the best mileage possible, the tuned 2015 F150 will deliver 415 horsepower and 490lb-ft of torque. Finally, the 91 octane performance mode adds 65 horsepower and 90lb-ft of torque for an expected output of 430 horsepower and 510lb-ft of torque.
So, if you want a whole lot more power from your 2015 Ford F150 EcoBoost without doing anything but plugging a cable into your OBDII port under the dash, this new product from Diablosport is a great gadget to have whether you tow, haul, race or just drive your truck every day and you want the most out of it.
