Bought new Ford LCF 4.5l 6cyl Powerstroke

I just purchased the new Ford LCF 4.5 liter 6 cylinder powerstroke cabover truck. 200hp with 440ft.lb of torque.

Have heard that this engine comes setup as 190hp, 200hp, and lastly 220hp. Does anybody have info on changing the stock setup? Also, since this is more of a specialty commercial truck, are there any modules available that can be programmed to specifically work with this Powerstroke to enhance fuel economy and power? Am I on my own here since it is not likely that anyone will be producing an aftermarket chip for this engine?

It is a nice truck!

I have seen a few of them trucks before just a lil uneasy about them since they are made by international lol. As far as upgrades are concerned you might be out of luck for awhile since it is basically a 6.4 in a v-6 version. I would really like to put that little 4.5 in my f-150 off road truck!!!

here's an even better idea, don't stick in your F-150, go find a Jeep!!!!

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

I wish Ford would start offering them as an option in the F150's. Those would sell like hot cakes!
