Ford Mustang 2.3 with CRTD4 Multi Channel Tuning System.
With our CRTD4 MultiChannel Tuning Box installed: Power was increased from 310 to 372 Bhp Torque was increased from 434 to 499 Nm
The Ford Mustang 2.3 Ecoboost is a controversial car - launched into an iconic muscle car range of big naturally aspirated engines, the turbocharged 2.3 was considered heresy by many. They’re proving to be popular sellers though, the smaller engine is more tax and fuel friendly whilst also offering near identical performance figures.
We’ve recently had two Mustangs in the workshop to have our systems fitted. The CRTD4 is an easy plug & play install with our clear instructions included but for customers in the Chelmsford & Manchester area it’s always great to have them in for pictures at our fitting centres.
Both customers were looking to make their sporty cars even more exciting for the summer. Both the soft top and hard top looked great in the sun but the engine was lacking a little low end power. The challenge was to give the engine a little more pull off the line without compromising fuel efficiency – TDI-Tuning’s CRTD4 is the ideal solution.
The CRTD4 connects to the vehicle’s boost sensors, bringing in the turbo earlier, and refining performance delivery across the entire power curve. There’s scope to tune modern engines as the manufacturers are forced to limit their power output for a variety of reasons, like regional regulations on new cars.
Chip tuning is a better option than a remap for these vehicles as the CRTD4 can be unplugged at any time reverting the engine to stock condition. This means the customers get all the benefits of having a tuned Mustang without the stress of making permanent modifications and voiding their warranty.
These Mustangs are now a real joy to drive and their owners can fully appreciate the summer in their tuned cars. With the CRTD4 installed they’ve unlocked a further 62 BHP and 65 NM extra torque. The result has to be driven to be believed!
