Are people using the mp275 happy with there mod? It seems like a lot of people prefer other mods. I know there's not much adjustment and it's expensive, but I like the idea of the warranty and I don't mind getting set up and not having to screw with it. Are the gains that noticeable? My car is a everyday driver and planning a few track days a summer. Thanks

The biggest reason people talk negative about the mp275 is the price. The gains are noticeable but not as drastic as say a Cobb stage 2 tune, it's definitely on the conservative side but has a nice linear powerband. I like The mp275 as a daily but if your planing on some track days I would find something that has more flexible tuning options, the Mtune only loads a proprietary tune, no adjustments possible.

we love it - install and forget more tweaking, etc... definitely more power, will most likely do the under-chassis brace and upgraded RMM to put the power down...
it's my wife's daily driver and she puts over 60 miles a day on it... hauls a$$ all day long :)

highly recommended, sounds great, definite improvement :wink:

Just for the record if a tune and warranty is what you are looking for (with price being a factor) I bought the FRPP tune and Snorkel for $460 from trueblueracing, $118 Rear sway from steeda, the $78 FSWerks Short Shifter and a $150 RMM from Cobb, and love the set up. Car feels fast on the freeway and from a roll, is a blast to drive, with very little drivability suffered (will admit the RRM is what affected drivability the most, vibrations, and I could of done without it) Whole set up was around 900 bucks delivered. I will say that a 350 dollar FMIC from DP racing is probably the only mod left that is needed. (although if something goes wrong you would have to proabaly reinstall the OEM FMIC)

1) MP275 has poor ROI.

Not sure what Toadster is saying, he can only get 91 octane like me. M/T only got 96 mph trap speed out of their MP275 with a limit slip diff as well. Anytime that dude wants to run me either E40 or just water-methanol injection he's welcome too.

2) It's biggest value is a modified warranty and it's through Mountune not Ford.

3) You'll be stuck at 260+ so about 40 hp gain over stock on 91 and about 25-30 hp over stock on 93.

I'd recommend -

a) Get water-methanol injection. I gained 12 hp over the stock tune, you'll get more out of MP275
b) Max out the pre-load on the stock wastegate, worth about 15 hp, maybe more since I was on the stock inter-cooler still
3) JMS BoostMax and run it stacked on top of the MP275 tune.
