View Poll Results: How was your experience with your 5-star tunes?
I've been thinking of adding a tuner on my new 2010. Do I need to provide specifics or is this a plug and play kind of thing?
How does this play out with a truck under warranty?
Shoot me an email and i will email you back specific info we need about your truck. Once we have all info we would load tunes onto the X3 device and once you receive its like you said plug and play.
ps thanks for replying fordfantic , i am in rep time out
I just got mine finally, I should have done this a long time ago.. I'm sporting the 87 econo tune for now, and so far I can tell the shift points are much better. Hangs on to overdrive a little more, making acceleration possible in winter (crappy gas = no power = downshifted every time), and seems to shift a wee bit quicker too. I can't figure out if it gained any power because with an open diff and snow on the ground, it goes nowhere unless I put it in 4x4, which I rarely need.
I can't wait for spring to come so I can try out the 91 performance tune... but by that point I'll probably be back to driving the Marauder.
Edit: I think it picked up some power, based on the noises the 3 indian guys in my X were making at lunch after taking off from a light.
A+ For mike at 5 star tuning. Gave him a call for my motor home I installed banks headers on it and they moved the o2 back from stock location. Told him will not need to drive it for three more months. Few hours later got email with the undated tune thanks to Mike.
Finally voted (forgot about this thread).
I thought I liked my truck before, I cant believe I waited this long.
By far the best money I have spent on my truck.
More power, sounds better (I dont hear any of the flutter I read about), Mike tweaked mine for harder firmer shifts which I love.
No downside at all.
Really enjoying driving my truck now.
Cant wait for summer to try the 93 Tow tune.

Mike has been great for me. Got my 5R100 to lock in 4th gear for towing.
Got more power out of my V10 E350 for me
No better mileage but he told me that would be the case before I purchased because of my weight towing.
Had questions and he answered most of them immediately on the phone or within the day if I had to leave a message.
Sent me several adjustments to my tune by email and they worked perfectly.
I really like the way my transmission shifts now and when it shifts
I purchased just over a year ago and no problems
Thanks Mike for the OT you put in to get me my tunes. So far I've only tested the 89 perf, tune, and man what a difference! My trucks on 37's without a gear swap yet. Just with the Airaid intake I went from 8.3 mpg ave. to 10.5! I can't wait to get this thing out on the highway!
I just downloaded the 87 economy tune last night. Drove it to work today and really felt the difference. Shift points have changed, and the engine doesn't seem to be as loud and overworked sounding like it did before. It actually had almost no noise at cruise speeds, and I've got headers, the y-pipe and flowmasters on it. I can't wait to try out the towing tunes next weekend. Great product and even better customer service. Looks like I'll never sell this truck!!!! Thanks again Mike!!
