    Contemplating forging the engine, spoke to both of these who seem really good and know their stuff but be interested to hear from people on here who have used them! CheeRS

    If you look hard enough you will find any garage has a negative customer somewhere…there lots of myths about this engine but ones thing for sure…the engine is chocolate:)

    FJRS did mine. As soon as the run in was complete I got it mapped at sabre.  Done 10k miles without a problem. Would defo recommend.

    Cheers Matt, how long is the run in? Also what map did Sabre do for you? Guessing it gives you the 440/443 as per your signature which seems perfect to me and wouldn’t want anymore personally, how does it handle/feel and what’s the biggest difference you feel?

    The 2.3 Ecoboost if built right is a solid motor

    You could always try Ford Performance

    The run in was a 500miles then back for an oil change then another 500. Think it differs between tuners though. Some people say don’t bother.

    The drive home from sabre felt like a totally different car. Its just so smooth compared to what I had on before (dreamscience) on normal mode its standard power then in sport its 440 which is plenty really.

    Cheers Matt, yeah other tuners saying ‘don’t bother’ would worry me and another reason to install confidence in Fred and team!

    That map sounds perfect, do you get much torque steer when in sport? I have zero at moment in my standard RS but my ST was insane with it with the Mountune 275 map…

    Yes not heard much good about dreamscience but with Sabre lots of great feedback so likely to go there!

    What sort of cost figures are you quoted and what gets swapped out, might sway me to go ahead and maybe then be a keeper for many more years?

    Hitch the best thing to do is ring Fred and have a chat and then he can email you some packages.

    Out of the three places I rang he was the only one that answered, one still hasn’t emailed me back 3 weeks later 🤣 and prob chatted for about 20 mins, he followed up with an email within 10 mins. Spoke a few times more before making my decision
