Just seeing this now; is it still open?

Does use of this have any negative impact on the new vehicle Ford warranty?

DHart,

Yes indeed. The group buy is still open and you are still able to get in. With the tune on your coach, you will still have your full factory warranty.

Great, thank you.

Are significant gains to be made using the 5-Star tuning even with Ford's new 2016 V-10 Triton engine in the 2016 F-53 chassis?

Good Support from 5Star

I agree with BPOLAND. I have had excellent support from 5Star. During the purchase decision and installation, I made 3 calls to 5Star. 2 were answered immediately and the other call was returned within 1 hour. One of the calls was even on Good Friday.

Excellent support.

DHart, There are many benefits to the new 2016 F-53 with 6-speed. We will be spoiling more details soon. Have some of our final beta tests going on now with the tune. Aiming to release soon.

Thank you. I am mostly interested in knowing how much more total HP and torque can be made available on the 2016 3v V-10 F-53, so I don't bog down as much on the grades.

Right now on some grades, the engine drops down from Overdrive, through 5th, down to 4th and turns 4000 RPM at about 38 MPH. Throttle full. Towing a loaded Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited.

How might the 5 Star Tuner change that?

5Star

I had such great service. They even called me to confirm order to make sure no problem occurred. Got the tuner super fast and installed it Monday. Took a short spin and can already tell the difference. So happy with 5Star and their product. Can't wait for our next road trip.

I installed the new tune at the KOA in Chattanooga TN. It took me about 10 - 15 minutes. The next morning I drove through the hills back to Ohio. Wow did I notice a difference. My 2016 Outlaw LS drove so much better than before. You can feel the difference while driving the on ramp of the freeway getting speed up to merge with traffic. So much smoother with the new shift patterns. Non of that screaming of the engine. In fact, it sounds quite sporty with a lower growl sound to the engine compared to the previous scream of the engine. Going through the hills was 100% better with this tune.

I can't say enough about it. Excellent product.

Was the engine screaming because the shift point was higher under the stock set-up?

And now you're finding that there is enough torque to pull the hills at lower RPMs in a higher gear?
