Superchips Lifts the 2015 Ford F150 EcoBoost to 408hp, 493tq

The folks at Superchips have just rolled out their tuning packages for the 2015 Ford F150 in base 3.5L V6, 5.0L V8 and 3.5L EcoBoost V6, with the EcoBoost V6 picking up 43 horsepower and 73lb-ft of torque for a total output of 408 horsepower and 493lb-ft of torque.

The 2015 Ford F150 is the lightest and most powerful half ton truck lineup from the Motor Company ever, making it the most capable as well. However, the truck performance market is one of the biggest in the US, so tuning companies like Superchips have been hard at work developing plug-and-play performance upgrades for the aluminum F150 with the base 3.5L V6, the 5.0L V8 and the top of the line 3.5L EcoBoost V6. Oddly, the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 is not included, but for those folks who bought one of the other three 2015 F150 engines – there are big gains to be had from the Superchips programmer.

Superchips Flashpaq for the 2015 F150
The people from Superchips have developed tuning packages for the 2015 Ford F150 with the naturally aspirated 3.5L V6, the naturally aspirated 5.0L V8 and the twin turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost V6.

The F150 with the 5.0L V8 benefits the least, with peak gains of 13 horsepower and 15lb-ft of torque leading to total output figures of 398 horsepower and 402lb-ft of torque.

The naturally aspirated 3.5L V6 picks up 16 horsepower and 27lb-ft of torque for 298 horsepower and 280lb-ft of torque.

The 3.5L EcoBoost engine benefits the most, with gains of 43 horsepower and 73lb-ft of torque. When added to the stock figures of 365 horsepower and 420lb-ft of torque, the 2015 F150 with the Superchips tune packs 408 horsepower and 493lb-ft of torque. Those are monster numbers.

More Than Just Power
In addition to adding varying levels of power for the different 2015 Ford F150 engines, the Superchips Flashpaq tuning tools allow you to pick different tunes for towing/hauling, gear ratio speedometer adjustments, an adjustable speed limiter, speedometer correction for different tire sizes, adjusted cooling fan temperatures and a transmission adjustment that improves shift quality and shift points. I do not have experience with Superchips products, but I’ve seen amazing results from similar products in terms of transmission shifts, so for anyone who would like their truck to shift a bit more positively – the tuners make a big difference.

Best of all, the Superchips Flashpaq for the 2015 Ford F150 is only $349, making it one of the most affordable tuning options out there so if you have a new F150 and you want more power and a more engaging driving experience – you should check out this product.
