    Hey guys,

    So based on the previous topic of VBOX tests I have done -
    http://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/19015-vbox-tested-0-60-vs-rpm-launch/
    http://www.fordedgeforum.com/topic/18909-vbox-tested-drive-vs-sport-0-60/

    I really wanted to get a test done to understand how much you can gain from just a tune.

    Specs -
    2015 Edge Sport
    Livernois 93 Tune
    Winter Wheel Set Up
    Miles = 4300
    1/4 tank of 93 octane
    48* F

    All tests done with traction control off and Sport Mode. I used my old school Scan Gauge (like 2004 era...) to understand RPM when launching. Also note that all runs done on a private road - not a track.

    Took a couple videos of the scan gauge to see IAT change over the run. To be honest, it didn't go up at all during 0-60, it actually went down on the runs interestingly enough....

    Test Notes
    - Runs were performed in the order above, car is extremely consistent (last 3 runs were estimated RPM)
    - 1500 RPM is not as great where it used to be pretty decent with the stock tune
    - 2000 RPM is the sweet spot (maybe 2200?)
    - 2300 RPM spun ALL FOUR TIRES and it showed.... I assume with a better street set up that I would grab a really good 0-60.
    - Best 1/8 mile time (only one of them was 8.7 @ 81 mph - last run of the night)
    - The one 91 Octane Tune I had was 5.408
    - The best 93 Stock Tune I had was 5.976
    - The 1 foot roll out average is 4.9 (what magazines use to test), best of 4.8!

    This tune took off .806 seconds off my best 0-60 and I must say I am impressed, I can't wait to see what downpipes / intercooler pipes / intake does (maybe 0-60 in 4.8?).

    Thanks Livernois Motorsports, can't wait to see how the car performs when you tweak the tune later on down the road!

    Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, we were very impressed with the results on these. We can't wait to get more time with one, and of course that new 3.0 that's coming out too!
