I bought a used 13' raptor. Only has a catback. It had some sorta tune (no tuner box came with the truck), and would not pass smog. for 3,500 miles the 02S. HO2S, and cat monitor wouldn't run. (in califiornia you can only have the evap monitor not ready) I read on here from others that the tune actually caused it to shut down some of the systems in the computer

It shifted hard under heavy acceleration (slamed into gears), when youde come up to a red light and slow down the engine would like rev match, and the throttle kinda blipped between each gear. Engine sounded louder too

The only to fix it was have someone with a factory ford scanner/programmer flash the PCU back to stock. Afterwards it was stock flash the shifting was much smoother under heavy throttle, engine quieted down (I have a magnaflow, and now its actually really quiet) you cant feel it downshifting either when coming to a stop.

I dunno what kinda crappy tune it had.

Who are the good safe tunes that don't F with the smog devices (sensors ect), but will gain some of that power back?

Having our own proprietary tuning software and hardware means that we have more control over what we can and ultimately will do. Our software allows us to have far more access to your ECU, and because we have more access our tuning files are much larger than most. This only shows that more of us goes into our tuning files VS the competition. We routinely invest in test vehicles both pre and post public release to ensure that we are offering the most responsible aftermarket support in the entire industry. There also is not another aftermarket vendor that has the corporate ties VIA their R&D and skunkworks for the big 3 domestic automakers and their performance divisions.

Tuning is easy! Your tuner will arrive to you completely blank, and ready to read info that will give us your factory calibration. You email that info to us, and we build you your tunes. When they are built we provide you with an app to download to your PC. This app will allow you to connect to our secured remote tuning server. All that you have to do is click "Update Tuner", and that will send us your factory calibration. Once we get that info to our calibration department we will have your custom tuning files ready for you in 24-48 hours. Whenever your tunes are ready to put onto your handheld we will email you letting you know that you can plug your tuner back into your PC and update the tuner again. After that, just load your tune onto your car and have fun!

PRICE: $599.99
SKU: LPP631118

Anybody running this tune? Looking for some of the latest input on tunes and tuners, but there's a few questions on here that have gone unanswered. Does anyone actually still own GEN 1's on here?
