Upgrade path for new base Ecoboost
Hey guys. I've only put 1500 miles on my new Ecoboost and already starting to get the mod itch. Still kind of bummed that I totaled my other Ecoboost right before having an intercooler and Dyno tune done. I'm gonna wait till I hit at least 10k before any engine mods or tune though but trying to figure out where best to start this time? Don't have an unlimited budget but can probably manage 2-3k for mods each year. Problem is I have a clean slate and there are some parts on the market now that have me question what to start with.
Do I start with the easy bolt on like last time and do a CAI, cat-back and BoV?
Do I have the intercooler, Dyno and downpipe done first this time?
Do I opt for the differential housing with the 3.55's first? I noticed one could be had for under 1k now and test driving a perf pack Ecoboost there is a very noticeable difference with the 3.55 gears.
Do I opt for the larger turbo? I see they have a drop in kit for just over 2k now.
I plan to do everything on the list stretched out over 3-4 years I'm just really torn on where to start this time.
