I am looking for someone who has lowered their EcoBoost. I am looking for a way to make my car stand out from the rest.

Either you go air ride for fully adjustable, down to the ground suspension...or you do H&R Springs that will give you a 1.9" drop in the rear & 1.2" drop in front.

I've got the H&R Springs on my SEL...and it looks & rides great.

I already have the EcoBoost so I don't think I will get as much of a difference with the springs as yours. That is why I am trying to find someone who has the EcoBoost with either those or the Eibach springs. Thanks for the info though......

BTW, I don't understand why they call it "Eco" boost when it lowers the MPG! Is that a form of government speak?

Depends on the motor. The 4 cylinders Eco's are relatively powerful so you end up being able to use one in a larger vehicle and get significantly better city gas mileage (think a 4 cylinder Eco Explorer - a 4 cylinder Explorer would have been out of the question until they released the ecoboost engines). 

 

As far as the 6 cylinder Eco's go it's primarily 8 cylinder power with slightly better gas mileage (than what you would normally have out of a powerful 8 cylinder) as a bonus.
