Anyone know the highest hp/tq application the Maverick’s transmission is used in? That’s always a good reference point for what is reasonable to assume.
The 8-speed has only been around for a couple model years now, and is only used with the 2.0l ecoboom, as far as I'm aware. In our market, it's in the Escape, Bronco Sport, and Maverick, which are all rated at the same output. Stands to reason that if it were used in a higher-output application, they would likely opt for the trans found in the edge.Anyone know the highest hp/tq application the Maverick’s transmission is used in?

Everything is relative. Anyone who is tuned by 5Star with their 93 octane tune, puts out roughly 370TQ at the WHEELS. That is a peak number, obviously, but I have heard of no failures from a tuned Maverick yet. I've been tuned since 1000 miles. I have had no transmission issues. That's 19,000 miles with zero issues.Anyone know the highest hp/tq application the Maverick’s transmission is used in? That’s always a good reference point for what is reasonable to assume.
Can the stock transmission handle the all of the added HP?Sorry, I forgot to mention this here, I did in my QuickRik build thread.: the fuel injectors are the same as the explorer/ranger, and the fuel pump is said to be better, running at 3600psi from the older versions at 3000psi!
For 93 I know it will be fine, Ethanol blends are somewhat up in the air, but I'm guessing E30 will be ok!
We shall see.
My numbers will be posted in the form of dragy runs, things like 0-60, 1/8th mile, and quarter mile.
So far my bests are 4.37 seconds for 0-60, 8.19 1/8th mile, and [email protected] quarter mile, all on E30.
The actually components in a transmission are much stronger than the assemblies rating. This piece is rated for this many blah blah blahs, on into thousands. The enemy of any auto trans is heat. If you can find a way to keep it cool the only way you can break it is by driving it like a maniac.Can the stock transmission handle the all of the added HP?
Well that all depends on how the trans is tuned, if in fact, it has the capability of having its parameters modified in the tune. Is torque reduction turned off or on, line pressure bumped up, those sorts of things all play into the how quickly things deteriorate.According to all the internet SME's, I should have blown up my trans many times over...
No it's not difficult, but I would 100% buy the Corsair ones. They should fit Absolutely perfect, and you won't have to grind away on the flanges.I have the fx4, 4k towing package with cold air intake, cat back straight pipe, 5 star tuned and I just got in my 2.3 turbo from eBay! My question, was it difficult to modify the oil lines and cooling lines for the turbo, should I just fork out another 200$ for the Corsair lines from eBay?
