I went with the X4. I didn't want to use my phone (iTSX) or need the full color 4″ touch screen display (Livewire TS+) They all have the same tune.

Frede said it best! Most go with the X4. It's design and functionality are superb options! The other 2 options change the interface and add some bells and whistles. Just comes down to personal preference and what type of device you want to look at.

Ahhhh
Bells and whistles. I like them (see my user id)
Is there a document somewhere that shows which data fields can be displayed on each device?
Thanks again for the help

5 Star Tuning

Installed the X4 tuning. As I left the lot in Florence, SC I immediately noticed the change in shifting. It shifted like a car transmission. After a 1000 mile journey I got about a half mile per gallon increase. That trip included some hilly terrain in Pa. Only once did it shift to 5200 rpm. Most of my traveling was with the cruise set to 65 mph at 2200 rpm. Plenty of down shifts to 2800 rpm and 3200 rpm. Perhaps the biggest noticeable change was the return to 2200 rpm quickly upon reaching the cruise setting. Before it might have lasted 15 or 20 seconds before it shifted back. Very pleased with this product as well as the service and friendliness of the staff. Highly recommend getting this tune for your V-10.

Ok, finally going to do it. Im thinking about being able to monitor the engine functions as well. What is the best package to go with and how do I get the forum discount? Do I need to fill out the sheet or is there just one tune for the 2014 v10? Also is the group buy still in effect? My son told me you were at diesel drags at byron drag way in byron Illinois, will you be there this year and will there be any deals there for the rv tune? I happen to live 5 minutes from there.

5 Star, if you are monitoring this thread can you say if the group buy discount is still available? I am interested in getting a X4 with 1 RV tune for my new RV.

I called on Friday and ordered it at the group buy price. I would recommend giving them a call. Easy transaction over the phone.

Received my tune today. Installed it without any problems. Went for a short drive with some hills and local roads and some highway.

Very pleased with the results.

Thank you 5 Star!

Dang, wish I had known there was a discount for forum members, Bought mine a few weeks ago and installed, Was still worth what I paid for it even without the discount. If some one on here can explain some of the different gauge layouts on the X4 for the Ford 87 tune I would really appreciate it. Some of them are obvious but for a none engine guy some are like alien language and I have no idea what I am looking at for the numbers. I would like to know.

Holy difference .....I love this tuner...for the money its worth it several times over....working with Chris now to tune my Jeep...

the shifting is SOOOO much better.....the acceleration is much nicer specifically at 1/4 and 1/2 throttle...I never mash the pedal....so the extra grunt is really enjoyable....the shifting is dramatically better....I flat towed my 2004 wrangler Rubicon on 35inch BFG mud terrain tires from Miami to Ocala and back for jeeptoberfest and it was a pleasure.....for my first time flat towing I was surprised how little difference I felt....the tow mode helped ALOT with braking and nice acceleration....I had no concerns merging onto the highway..

I am a car guy......and very intune with power and tq feel.....there is a nice difference with this tune/tuner...
and as everyone else my dealings with them were great....enjoying my camper so much more with each upgrade.....
