    so -

    some feedback is to check your spark plugs gapped to .025...

    stock plugs were gapped between. 035-.040.
    if you run stock gap you may experience some backfiring issues

    Runs perfect now with. 025 gap.... 13. 9 sec 1/4 mile

    I tried 5 star tune and it was horrible. I habe a 2018 Raptor and after i tuned it and engaged my adaptive cruise control, my truck threw a wrench light. Then my turbos shut off, then my turbos came back on and were overboosting and then my engine seized up. I only had 10k miles on it.

    I got a new engine and retuned it with 5 star and after having the adaptive cruise control on for a few miles my truck threw a wrench light on again. I pulled over and shut off the engine completely. Turned it back on and the wrench light was gone. I put my truck back to stock 6th tune and had 0 issues with the adaptive cruise control.

    I returned my 5 star tune after talking with them and they wanted a 30% restocking fee!!!! I ended up going with a whipple tune because whipple wont void your warranty and they work hand in hand with Ford.

    I now have a whipple tune and have 0 issues with my truck. My truck has a lot more power, torque, shifts great, and is very responsive.
