Whipple, known for its industry leading upgrade systems and technological innovations, has now brought the same technology to the 2020-2024 2.3L Explorer with the 50-state legal Whipple Stage 1 kit. The Stage 1 kit features the massive Mega Cooler intercooler upgrade, high-flow replacement air filter and an all-new calibration that offers more power and an updated shift strategy to vastly improve the driving experience. The Stage 1 calibration gains up to 50* horsepower under the curve and up to 40* horsepower at peak rpm along with and an astounding 90* foot pounds over stock at 3000rpm!

The Whipple Mega Cooler offers an insane 214% greater volume and 259% more projected frontal area for industry leading cooling. The bar and plate type intercooler features offset fin on both the cold and hot side, allowing for increased cooling capacity while fitting into the stock packaging, yet significantly outperforming the stock cooler. Test show a 70 degree (F) drop in temperature just on the dyno, yet even bigger gains are shown during real world applications. The colder air allows increased spark advance and more O2 to the engine, resulting in more consistent power and quicker recovery while maintaining safety from engine robbing detonation. The Mega Cooler features cast aluminum tanks to help promote high flow vs other sheet metal type tanks, ensuring you get incredible cooling and low pressure drop through the core.

Whipple and it's Ford calibration team worked feverishly using advanced tools to develop a calibration that could maximize power based on 91 octane or higher fuel, while maintaining safety for everyday driving conditions. Whether your cruising, towing or just like a spirted drive, the Whipple tune is designed for all applications. Each drive mode is maintained, leaving you all the potential options your Explorer was equipped with. The Whipple flash tool allows easy uploading and downloading of the Whipple files while also offering the ability to read/erase trouble codes, live data viewing and advanced data logging capacity.
