First suggestion is to use the search feature of this forum. 100's of responses in a number of threads.

I have 5 Star on a 2012 6.8 450. Much better performance and shift patterns. No difference in fuel consumption. Well worth the $'s. iRv2 members get a discount.

Safe travels!

I used it on my Jayco, and used a SCT tuner on my pick up. Fords torque shift transmission has been around since 2003 when they paired it with IH’s 6.0l diesel. The tuners have been doing it for awhile now. Good money well spent in my opinion.

Yep, as Nike will tell you “Just do it” (99% of the people in the threads listed above will tell you the same)

5 Star Gets 5 Stars

Just installed a Tuner I purchased used I found on this site. The difference is noticeable. My V-10 runs completely different on my 36’ Fleetwood. Shift points have the engine running much smoother.

I have it installed, on my 16 chassis. I like the difference, with same fuel use. The rig pulls the hills better. Less shifting.

I have it on my 08 Bounder [Ford V-10], best performance upgrade you can install for cheap, makes my 5 speed shift so much better..

Had it on our '04 with the 4 speed. Huge difference there. Put it on our new '19 with the six speed. Not much difference.
