    As said in my title, I am new to the ecoboost community. I recently picked up a 2012 lariat with around 110k on it and absolutely love this thing. I have heard the hipe about the ecoboost torque and have to say that it lives up to its reputation. But...... like most on this forum i'm sure, i want more! After a month of clicking around I have decided to start with an SCT X4 and MPT tunes. I obviously want to get the most out of my truck when it comes to torque and horsepower but am curious of others experience with going big on a 110k miles. I am the second owner and know that it came from an older man that really respected his truck and wasn't beating on it. Excellent service records show that it was maintained to a T by his local dealer. All that being said, whats everyones thoughts on going with a 93 race tune on a "broken in" engine? I appreciate the feedback

    MPT's tunes are completely safe for the vehicle. From their 87 PerfEcon to their E30 PRX, all safe. As long as the vehicle is maintained like it should, you use good fuel that's the correct octane or better, and you don't tow with the PRX tune, you will be fine. 93 PRX is the way to go in my book.

    I'm planning on purchasing the SCT X4 with the 5 tune option. Definitely going with the 93 PRX tune and 93 performance/tow tune, any recommendations on the remaining 3? Will I even change them much besides if going from daily to towing?

    And you will need to change them, if doing any towing. You can't tow with any PRX tune. Only use the Performance Tow to tow with.
