About the Ford Ranger PX1

The Ford Ranger PX1 refers to the first generation of the Ford Ranger midsize pickup truck, which was produced from 2011 to 2015. The PX1 was built on a new platform and designed to be a more modern and refined pickup truck than its predecessor.

The Ranger PX1 had various engines, including a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine and a 3.2-litre five-cylinder diesel engine. These engines were paired with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, offering good power and torque for their respective classes.

In terms of features, the Ranger PX1 was well-equipped for its time, with standard features like air conditioning, power windows and mirrors, and a six-speaker audio system. Higher trim levels also offered additional features like leather upholstery, a touchscreen infotainment system, and a rearview camera.

Overall, the Ford Ranger PX1 was a capable and reliable pickup truck that was well-suited for a variety of tasks, from hauling cargo to off-road adventures. While it may not offer the same level of performance or technology as newer models, it remains a popular choice for buyers looking for a sturdy and reliable pickup truck at a more affordable price point.

The 3.2L & the 2.2L engines respond well to modifications & custom dyno tuning.

Custom Dyno Tuning Ford Ranger PX1

Your Ford Ranger PX3 can become significantly slower when towing, especially when your air conditioning and other accessory systems require power to run, and the engine provides that power.

Many drivers feel frustrated while driving, which can make simple overtaking a big problem, and applying full-throttle is a natural reaction when they think their Ford Ranger PX3 cannot perform as they expect.

This is because a diesel engine is meant to deliver a strong "torque" delivery and towing force at middle ranges of engine speed (2000-4000rpm). As a result, the car cannot complete an overtake even at full throttle if driving on a gently sloping road with a medium load onboard.

This results in potentially unsafe driving conditions and higher fuel consumption.

STAGE 1 TUNING

A Stage 1 tuning package is a popular enhancement choice among diesel car enthusiasts seeking to boost their vehicle’s performance without compromising reliability or drivability.

The typical Stage 1 Diesel tuning package for a diesel car involves adjustments to the engine’s software or ECU (Engine Control Unit) to optimize its performance. This leads to a notable increase in power and torque, enhanced throttle response, and an overall improved driving experience.

These modifications contribute to heightened engine intake and exhaust flow, resulting in improved breathing and enhanced power delivery.

It’s crucial to recognize that any alterations to your diesel vehicle’s engine could potentially impact its reliability, emissions, and warranty. Consequently, it is advisable to select a reputable tuning company with expertise in diesel vehicles, capable of offering a customized tuning package tailored to your specific requirements and objectives.

In summary, a Stage 1 tuning package for diesel cars can be an excellent means to elevate performance and driving enjoyment. However, it is essential to carefully weigh the potential risks and benefits before proceeding with any modifications to your vehicle.

Stage 2 Package Inclusions:

  • Custom Dyno Tune (ECU Remap) or ECU Flash

A Stage 2 Diesel tuning package typically involves more comprehensive modifications to the engine and other performance components compared to a Stage 1 upgrade. This can encompass additional enhancements to the intake and exhaust systems, as well as upgrades to the intercooler.

Opting for a Stage 2 tuning package brings a notable increase in power and torque output when compared to a Stage 1 package. 

It’s crucial to bear in mind that a Stage 2 tuning package can have a substantial impact on your vehicle’s emissions. Thus, selecting a reputable and experienced tuning company is essential to receive a custom-tailored package that aligns with your specific goals and requirements.

If you’re contemplating a Stage 2 tuning package, a thorough consultation with the tuning company is recommended to discuss potential risks and benefits, as well as any necessary modifications for optimal performance and reliability. Additionally, it’s vital to ensure that all modifications comply with local emissions regulations and safety standards.

Stage 2 Package Inclusions:

A Stage 3 Diesel tuning package typically involves substantial modifications to enhance overall performance. This may include upgrading critical components such as the turbocharger, intercooler, fuel system, intake and exhaust system, and potentially other upgrades depending on the requirements. Additionally, upgraded drivetrain and suspension components are often necessary to handle the increased power output.

Opting for a Stage 3 tuning package brings a significant boost in power and torque compared to Stage 1 or Stage 2 upgrades. However, it’s important to note that this level of modification is not recommended for daily drivers, as it may lead to reduced reliability, increased emissions, and decreased drivability in traffic.

It’s crucial to be aware that a Stage 3 tuning package may potentially void the factory warranty and could be deemed illegal in certain jurisdictions. Hence, selecting a reputable and experienced tuning company becomes essential to receive a customized package meeting specific goals and requirements, all while ensuring optimal performance and reliability.

In summary, a Stage 3 tuning package for a diesel vehicle represents a substantial upgrade, suitable for experienced and knowledgeable enthusiasts willing to accept the associated risks and compromises with this level of modification.
