Make Your Coyote-Powered 2018 F-150 Pickup Haul With A Custom Tune

The summer 2018 car season is now in full swing and if you happen to hear the words “tuned by Livernois,” there is a good chance that the vehicle they are talking about has been purposely built to bring the power. Livernois Motorsports & Engineering is known for tuning some of the fastest EcoBoost and Coyote vehicles around. Recently, the company announced its popular MyCalibrator performance tuner is now available for the 2018 5.0 F-150 as well.

The programmer delivers a calibration that works in sync with the Gen 3 Coyote’s new port- and direct-injection fuel system and ensures gains throughout the entire RPM range. This allows for peak gains over 25 horsepower and 35 lb-ft of torque over an otherwise stock vehicle.

“With the new fuel system, there are many aspects of tuning approaches that must be done to ensure getting the best results possible,” Livernois Vehicle Operations Manager, Andy Ricketts, said. “Our 10-plus years of tuning direct-injection vehicles has given us unique insight into their special requirements under many conditions and combining this with our experience with the Coyote platform made for a challenging, but rewarding project.”

The Livernois F-150 tune also includes a revised transmission calibration, which improves the vehicle’s shift firmness and shift points, and allows drivers to stay in the powerband longer to tap into the added power and torque. “Our MyCalibrator tune dramatically improves the performance of your 5.0 F-150,” Andy added.

We asked Livernois if it had any additional performance upgrades planned for the new 5.0 F-150 engine? “We are actually working on several offerings for these, and hope to have more information soon,” Andy said. “As for boosted offerings, we do have some experience with this as well, and plan on releasing some results soon!”
