Tuners for 2015 V10

I need help deciding the best tuner for my 2015 V10. I have read adds and posts about both the 5 Star and Brazel. I have the problem of transmission down shifting from 5 th to 2 nd on hills sometimes high RPMs . Not Towing anything.

No experience with either tune but 5 Star claims to put 4th gear back in the transmission shift pattern.

That reportable limits the 5 to 3 downshifts.

Some report that the 4 gear reprogramming does not work in Cruise Control.

A friend of mine put 5 star in his 2015 and it made a big difference. I had it in my 2016 v-10 and it helped on hills.

I had the 5 Star on my 2014 Bounder it was a significant improvement, put 4th gear into the downshifting pattern no more 5000 rpm wail on a simple downshift. I also put it on a 2016 with the 6 speed and it was in my opinion worse than the stock Ford tune.
