Why 5 Star Tuning? We are your industry leader in Ford and GM truck, car, SUV and motorhome tuning. We create and offer the most refined tunes on the market for your application. Rather than offering you, a one-size fits all approach we custom tailor all of your tunes to your specific needs.

In addition to our refined approach to tuning vehicle, we ensure your vehicle’s reliability will never be compromised.

Dyno & Street Proven Tunes! Our 5 Star Tuning custom tunes have been dyno developed, refined, tested repeatedly, street tested, tow tested and driven all over the country in our own personal vehicles.

Free Tunes for Life! Have you added a new mod to your motorhome and wish to maximize your application’s performance? For all of our Tunes for Life members, these modifications are free for the life of your vehicle while you own it.

Which Tunes Are Available For My Application? No matter if your coach is stock or heavily modified, our RV Daily Tow tune is the perfect match for your application.

I have no complaints. I am very satisfied with the stock tune on my 2017 E450, V10, 6 speed.
I don't tow a brick house behind me, just a car with wheels. If I can only go the minimum posted speed up a hill, that's OK, I'll use the truck lane.

I don't need more power, faster throttle response or any of the other claims the tune offers.

We still have the group buy open at the current price through the end of the month. In December the price will change.

Currently, SCT also has a $40 rebate on the tuner that you can combine with our offer.

The car/truck market is an easier market to offer tunes to sample as many have tuners hanging around from Mustangs, Cameros or other race-inspired applications.

because people dont think 5 star works. i didnt think so eather but i had to do something with my V10 it was shifting all the time noisy and screeming at the site of a over pass.
i couldnt use the cruse much witch i like to do. with the 5 star tune it has all been fixed. you have to call them and tell them what you have and what you want it to do. the people are very helpful on the phone. after 2800 mile trip i wanted a little more torque i called them and asked what they could do. with in 4 hours they emailed me a update tune works great.

I was into an alignment shop to have some work done recenty. When I went back to pick up the rv the tech that did the work took us for a drive to show what he'd done. When I took off from a stop light he asked what I did to the engine to get it to be so responsive. He said another tech had commented to him that just a blip of the throttle produced more uumph then they'd experienced with other V10's. I was pleased to hear that as I'd only driven the RV once without the tune.
I've said this many times. I've had many cars, none of which were ever "tuned", but the first thing I bought after bringing the rv home was the 5-Star tune!

I understand that you feel it's voodoo, (and it just may be) but there is a difference that I feel was worth the money. (and, yes, I've read your other post trashing it.)

Its not voodoo.
5 star states that one of the first thing it does is re-programs the throttle response. Its in their advertisements.

Just pushing down the pedal further, faster, when starting off will achieve the same thing.

It also changes the Ford stock shift ranges for the tranny. I got it, with the discount, for my 2012 Itasca Impulse Silver 31RP (F-450 6.8L) and am glad that I did. I think it has helped in these mountains and hills of NC.
