I tow heavy with the 3.73 and for the guys saying crazy; nah, I don't think so. You want crazy, go tow with a half ton what they rate them at. That's crazy. I was concerned about what I'm towing...

Anyone tried 5-star Daily Driver / Tow Tune?

I use the 87 octane performance tune to tow my fifth wheel and love it for that, but can't stand the shift points for normal driving. It hard shifts at specific speeds and the most annoying one is...

5 Star Tune oddities

So I've had my 5 star tune for a couple weeks now. I have a 2012 F350 CC SRW with 3.73 final. I'm running the 87 octane performance/tow. It definitely performs better, and the shift points are...

Definitely not a concern for you pulling, but your pin weight may be an issue. That's why I went with the F350. It gives me a 4000lb payload. I'm not sure what yours is, but it's going to squat...

13k tow with 5-star tune and 3.73 gears

So I was worried about towing my new fifth wheel without the 4.30 rear end. I shouldn't have been. I've seen the posts from Denny and a few others towing heavy. I got the 5-star tune and just...

I don't think it's a glitch guys. I think it's a low voltage situation and has to do with the battery. I have a 2012 and had the exact same issue, but then my battery completely failed one day. ...
