    Eric Welcome to the ZZZ. Give Mike at 5* a call

    Got a 2011-2014 6.2L V8 F-150 or Raptor? - 5 Star Tuning

    and tell him the Mods you have on your beast he will write a tune based on your mods bringing everything together for one bad mofo. You will also need a tuner device like the SCT handheld unit that way down the road if you ever add something like headers or if you want to change shifting points Mike can modified the tune you have and e-mail it to you the device comes with a wire that hooks up to your computer to down load the modified tune then hook the device to your truck and upload the new tune file. Mike is a good guy and easy to work with tell him you are a member of the ForumZ

    Just installed the 5 star tunes, ITSX unit. Also a 2013 supercrew. As mentioned it REALLY wakes the truck up! Mine is totally stock. Loaded the 87 performance and that was MUCH better than stock. Then filled up with 91 and loaded the 91 performance tune...this is MONEY! It shifts tighter, even the shifting from R to D is seamless and quick. You turn a corner and it's in the right gear! You slow down and it downshifts nicely so you're not in 6th gear at 30 mph. No more slush box spinning and waiting for it to catch up!

    Hey Wheeler,
    Next thing you need to look into is a CAI and exhaust system. Just be careful because modify your Raptor can become addicting. Yo by the way love to see a few pictures of that Bad Boy.

    Ha! Ya I don't need any encouragement on mods... it's a sickness. I have a number of vehicles and love messing with them! I do like the stock exhaust note and thought I might get a cutout, buddy has one on his. I have to say I'm blown away by the suspension. And how capable these trucks are for something that's "stock". I've already jumped it and hit g outs that would have broke regular trucks. I bought a new XLT in 2010 and put 100k on it. That new XLT with ecoboost is $41k plus! For a cloth truck! Figured I'd try this... MUCH happier! 31k miles, one owner.
