Bronco owners who wanted a little extra power got their wish Ford Performance.

In exchange for $825, customers can receive a “performance calibration” for 2021 and 2022 Broncos equipped with the 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine.

When the unit is installed, the engine power increases to 330 hp. (246 kW / 335 hp) and 385 lb-ft (521 Nm) of torque. It is 30 hp. (22 kW / 30 hp) and 60 lb-ft (81 Nm) more than the standard engine running on premium fuel. This brings us to the bad news, as performance tuning requires premium gasoline, which currently costs an additional $0.77 per gallon compared to normal.

On the bright side, this tune makes the four-cylinder nearly as powerful as the Bronco’s optional 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6. This particular engine produces 330 hp. (246 kW / 335 hp) and 415 lb-ft (563 Nm) of torque on the premium class.

In addition to the performance boost, Ford says the tune improves “throttle response throughout [the] RPM Range” and has an optimized gearshift schedule for vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission. Self-starters are also not left out, as models with manual control have received rev matching in downshifts.

The tune comes with the ProCal 4 tool, which is used to save the standard calibration as well as download the performance tune. It seems relatively simple, with owners downloading the performance calibration, plugging the ProCal 4 tool into the vehicle’s OBDII port, and then installing it.
