I've always launched min in 4hi and switched to 2wd just before the 1-2 shift. I try not to do that many hard launched anymore running a ProCharger and I don't want to push it. Here is my launch video I made and my most current run. The top end run I waited till 2nd to which out due to traction issues in 4wd.
Well after a cold winter here in Michigan zero issues or failures with the ProCharger this winter. That being said I did let my truck run/warm up at least 5 minutes before driving it if the temp was under 40 degrees to get some heat in the unit. ProCharger just recommends your vehicle is at full operating temp before taking it over 3,000 rpm.
So sorry it took so long to reply. Being the way the surge system is on the ProCharger kit you don't build any boost till 3500rpm. However with the Klug Performance tune it still feel great and responds very well under those various throttles. In 3rd gear with medium throttle because of the load in that gear and less vacuum the valve does close and you do see some boost around 3psi and even that low of boost you can feel it when it goes in the motor via just being purged off.
Been a while since I posted any updates. Truck now has a Corsa dB cat-back, recently did a launch video, and today did a driving in snow video. Also got some more love from ProCharger as well on their Facebook page so check it out! Enjoy!
If your truck is flex fuel and it has the flex fuel sensor it's a two in one tune. The best way to do it is have it tuned for regular gas of your preferred octane and then get it as low as possible almost empty and fill it with e85. Then have your tune dialed in for e85. That way your trucks tune is optimized for both fuel types. Then you can switch back and forth as you please. Just a pain at first being the right way to do it is have it tuned with the two different fuel types at first. Now if you don't have the flex fuel sensor installed or it doesn't have one a regular gas tune is your only option.
Being how ProCharger designed the surge system on these kits the truck produces no boost under normal driving so you maintain your regular mpg and it pretty much drives stock until you give it fully throttle. Even with the stall and e35 I've been getting 16 city and 19 hwy. On 93 I was seeing 18 city and as high as 21 hwy. As far as the intake it still has the stock throttle body and manifold. Only mods are the kit with a GreenFilter, Circle D stall, OEM flex fuel kit, Corsa cat-back, and a Klug Performance tune. Everything else on the truck is stock.
Today I had my new Corsa dB cat-back installed. I had the chance to get this system at a very good price and wanted to try it out. Truck still has the stock manifolds and cats. I did do a 3rd cat delete. I think on the outside the Corsa is a little louder than my previous Black Widow setup but it is quieter on the inside with minimal drone. I think I choose wisely for my first cat-back system. First is a cold start and driving video of my old setup, and the same with the new setup. Black Widow 250 muffler. Corsa dB Catback
Just built ranger on the Ford site, 2.3 EcoBoost with a 10 speed, 310hp 350tq stock lol. I have not. That sounds fun!! I want to go to try and go to the Dream Cruise on Woodward next year.
