Ford Fusion Mods
The Ford Fusion is a formidable platform straight from the factory. It’s plenty potent, armed with it’s 2.0L engine. Just a few years ago, 240hp from a stock 4 cylinder seemed like a pipe dream, now it’s the norm. 240hp is great for a factory car, but why stay there when you can make so much more?
The Ford Fusion responds incredibly well to mods. The stout 2.0L makes tons of power with every new modification. These cars do have several big flaws from the factory, but cp-e knows how to fix them!
Eliminate Wheel Hop
From the factory, the Ford Fusion has some of the worst wheel hop that we’ve ever encountered. The weak stock mounts allow the engine to move heavily under acceleration. Engine mounts are one of our specialties and we’ve created a great solution.
The rear engine mount is the largest problem area. Our solution changes the axis of movement, resulting in substantially less engine movement without a large change in noise, vibration, or harshness.
Lower Your Charge Air Temps
The weakest link on every EcoBoost car is the factory front mount intercooler, or FMIC. Heat soak is the enemy when it comes to the Ford Fusion. The absolute best way to fix this is with one of our intercoolers. Although, we may be biased the results speak for themselves.
In addition to the FMIC, the charge pipes are essential to keeping your charge air temps low. Also, our version of these pipes allow you to add an HKS or Tial blow off valve! Adding a BOV or blow off valve, is great way to let your Ford Fusion’s turbo character show. Ford suppresses the turbo sound that we enthusiasts love from the factory. Take it back by adding one of our exhale kits! If you’d prefer to keep the stock diverter valve, that’s fine too. We offer a hot side charge pipe that includes the factory diverter valve plate.
Increase Turbo Spool with a Downpipe
Turbos work best when they’re able to spin more freely. With the intake bringing in the fresh, cool air, you’ll need to clear up the other side to expel the hot air. The first piece of the exhaust puzzle post-turbo is the downpipe. Adding a larger downpipe will allow your turbo to spool quicker, reducing the time it takes to get into boost. This also adds more horsepower and torque than the cat back section. When it comes to selecting a downpipe, you have two options: catted or off-road. If your car is driven anywhere other than a race track, catted is the choice for you. We offer an off-road version for race-prepped cars that need to squeeze out every last horsepower from their stock turbo EcoBoost Ford Fusion.
Make That 4 Cylinder Sing With an Exhaust System
4 cylinders with a modified exhaust are the butt of a lot of automotive jokes. But not to worry, not every 4-banger has to sound like a weedwacker. In fact, the Ford Fusion (and Focus RS for that matter), have one of the sweetest sounds available once you add a cp-e exhaust. Our favorite characteristics of the EcoBoost 2.0L are unlocked when you add a full exhaust.
Build Your Engine
While the 2.0L EcoBoost is a stout platform, it really was never designed to have as much horsepower as an upgraded turbo will give you. To remedy this, we recommend upgrading your rods and pistons when moving up to a larger turbo.
Our rods are available as a H-Beam or an I-Beam. Both designs are forged and highly durable. For builds that require the absolute best or expect to see over 450whp, we recommend going with I-Beam rods.
Forged Pistons are a must on high horsepower Ford Fusion’s. We have two stages of piston available for this platform and can accommodate both stock and over bore applications.
