A few weeks after owning my st i decided to buy a tuner and i went with livernois motorsports my calibrator tuner. All i can say is wow. It feels like an entirely new car. I am dealing with Anthony @ Livernois motorsports and he told me the tune he sent me made 269whp and 376wtq. i know every car will vary a little bit but im blown away by the massive increase in power over stock with basically just a tune. i am a little nervous however with these number on the stock intercooler so i know what my next mod will be. i don't know of any other tuner out there that is seeing these kinds of numbers with the st's with little to no other modification to the car.

Oh no its not! haha but you know what they say more power more problems. As of right now its my daily so i don't want to do too much to the car yet as its still under warranty also.

Those numbers are on par with my stage 3 setup and you don't have any mods except that tune. I didn't know those guys tuned STs I thought they just did the SHO. How are your corrections on each cylinder? And how much boost are you running?

i have an intake and 3" catback. yes they are getting pretty big. They know the ecoboost motors better than anyone out there in my opinion. check out their site and you can see all of their dyno sheets and videos of their cars or customers cars on the dyno. i don't know the corrections on each cylinder but i could find out. and im peaking around 23psi

Not criticizing your numbers either just curious is all. If they do great things with your ST and others I may check them out to tune my BT when I get it

No idea about them with the ST, but people love Livernois tunes over on the f-150 forum. So they do have a good rep for the bigger ecoboost engines. That said those numbers are about as high as I have seen without going BT on here. Anyone else have livernois tune their ST and have numbers from an independent dyno?

Edit: Here is the info from their website. I am sorry but the numbers from a stock vehicle seem too good to be true!

I notice on the livernois website that they offer tuning for the ST but only offer their tuning device. I would assume they don't do work with the Accessport or SCT

Livernois is legit. They have been in the business forever and have a great reputation in the Ford community.

good info, I have been waiting out my warranty a little bit longer before I upgrade the IC and go tune. I have been sold on the Stratified OTS maps for a while, but this changes things. I wasnt really planning on going custom tune, but who know at this point.

Anyone have any thoughts on their claim of 100hp? I was under the impression without a Big turbo you can't really get over 300, let alone stock. Am I wrong? Do they have their HP and TQ numbers backwards?

Theyre numbers are definitely backwards. If you read the dyno you'll see that. Simple mistake but definitely easy to passover and not realize.

The only problem with this route is that you are stuck with their tune. THe Accessport has great support and you can run many different tuners to find who you like. Livernois is just them as they developed their own tuner

I was trying to read the numbers this morning early and I couldn't zoom in well enough. That is what I was hoping and makes me feel much better about these claims. I will probably end up getting one of their tunes in my truck next spring.

I'm sure they are great tuners, the only problem is the platform they tune on. THe only reason the Accessport is so relevant is because of all the pro tuners they have; you can hop around on flash tunes until you find the company you like. With things like this and the SCT you have to be set on a single tuner (Torrie at Unleashed basically owns the SCT platform and is the main reason people get one). They are pigeon holed by the massive support Cobb has created around their tuner.

I was looking at a Livernois tuner for my 2013 Escape. Ended up trading that in and getting a 2016 Fusion. I'll be getting a tuner from Livernois for that now.

I have their tune on my SHO and their tuner doesn't log or have screen to view any data which is a turn off for me. What's nice about torrie and stratified is you can send logs for them to make changes. With livernois you can only email what you are feeling and a change is made.

Nothing against livernois but having many cars and doing some of my own tuning on different platforms I don't think one tune fits all without data to review.
