Hello all; new here!

I have a 2018 EcoSport with the 1.0L 3-cylinder turbo. Obviously more power would be a God-send for this little thing. Any advice or suggestions that you have done to yours to give it a little boost?

I’d like to get an intake for it but I’m struggling to find anything. Does anyone have any links?

I have found intakes for the 1.0L in the Fiesta/Focus so could these work on the 1.0L EcoSport? Thanks for your help!

I bought a plug in power booster device off of Ebay. It's supposed to fit the 2 liter and yours. I went on a recent trip to Tennessee from Ohio. Without the chip i had to put the gas to the floor going uphill. With the chip plugged in, i didn't have to do that and it seemed to get 1 or 2 mpg better gas mileage. It seems to set the shift points differently. It plugs into the diagnostic port. I bought the cheapest priced one as they all look the same, but listed at different prices. I also have a K & N air filter. After the trip i scheduled a service appt to have Ford reprogram my computer for more power. We will see what happens.

I am also looking for things like cold air intakes and other things to improve hp over all, though I do love the little car.

The K&N Air Filter combined with the SpitFire Tuning chip I bought on Ebay make a big difference. It accelerates faster. I took my car to the dealer yesterday to do diagnostics on it. I kept the tuner chip at home. I told them it has no power, They told me the shift points are right on, and other than doing a Sync update, they did not "tune" the engine settings.
