    Which leads to a better result? Or is there justification for doing both?

    What do you mean "better result"? They each do something different.

    Pedal Commander does nothing to the performance of the vehicle. IT does however takes the lag out of the pedal / and the gas out of the tank when using it :)

    i had my PC in my 2017 Raptor / 2017 Explorer / and now moved it to the 2018 raptor - feel a difference in Stock vs City 1 setting. Real difference in long distance driving with ECO mode (better mileage to)

    Getting my 5star tune (BDX tomorrow) will really be able to tell

    That was my initial line of thinking. The dyno tune adds actual HP/torque = performance. The PC would then add adjustable throttle response, based on the actual set of circumstances at the time.

    Thank you for responding.

    Guys each one of you are correct. Dyno tune and any product other than the peddle commander risks the complete VOID of the insane warrenty you now have. One repair on these trucks could equal 5 payments. Just Lookin out for you! I really want to tune but cant risk the extended plan I paid a lot for.
