Has your tuner worked on any Fusion Sports with the 2.7EB yet?

Geez, all this talk of this fast Continental makes me want to suck everything I can out of my Platinum DTS! I'd love to have a Continental running those numbers! Definitely a lot more interesting like that, as opposed to stock. Love your car, watched most of your videos. I know I'm limited with what I can gain on my DTS, but it's bone stock. Might play with the intake, exhaust, and see about having someone play with a tune just to try and get a little bit more performance bite to take out the driving miss daisy. If I get on it tho, she definitely has some bite. I ended up doing a 5ft-10ft burn out the other day, I got a bit of road rage, someone slammed their brakes in front of the casino and I channeled Mario Andretti. I wish our MKZ could have a tune and intake and exhaust done, but not sure what benefits I'd get from that 3.5 - non turbos.

I know he has done the 2.7 on his F150 but he has not tuned a Fusion Sport.

Didn't notice this thread back when it was relevant to reply, but Livernois has 2.7 Fusion tunes if you're still looking for one.

Livernois has finally had a Continental 3.0 on their dyno and have developed a tune for it.  They are seeing over 50 additional HP at the wheels with their tune.  Since I have been a customer and have their tuning device, I can get their tune for just $20 in shipping costs.   I am happy with the tune I have but it is nice to have another option.

In looking at Livernois' dyno results, it looks like they pick up more HP and torque on the 2.7 than on the 3.0.  That is totally expected since the 3.0 is quite a bit stronger when stock so there is less headroom.    In fact, the 2.7 with a tune doesn't quite match a stock 3.0.  

 

If we factor in the typical driveline losses in an AWD system, the 3.0 would appear to have around 460-470 HP at the crank.  Amazing what a little 180 cubic inch engine is capable of while retaining good fuel economy, smooth idle, quiet running and (hopefully) longevity.

Simply amazing that we see these little engines with such reliable power density, this is the golden era of ICEs..

I remember when you needed a big block to make that torque and horsepower.  but now, it's all too easy.:)
