      With gains of over 31hp and 44tq on your otherwise stock Explorer our custom tuning is an absolute no brainer!

      Thanks Peter..

      About the tuner does the vehicle has to be taken to the dyno in order to work or is it a plug an play?

      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!

      Is a dyno tune required after tuner and custom tune is installed or is it plug and play?

      It is not plug and play, but it also does not require any dyno time. My prior post does lay out the NA tuner process, and even includes the instructions for the EcoBoost if you happen to have that instead of the NA 3.5L variant.

      Does this seem correct that by year only one trim is supported?

      Ford considers the 2016 NA engine vehicles to be the base vehicle. The EcoBoosts are the elevated trim levels.

      2014 explorer limited performance mods

      Hi guys, new user here. Lets start off this is my first ford purchase i have owned. Im really liking the 2014 explorer limited. I bought it brand new in 2014. Since i was a honda/acura guy, I cant own a car w/o doing any performance mods to it lol. Im looking for performance mods for the explorer. Mainly looking for exhaust cat backs. Would also look into engine mods too. Let me know what i can or cannot do to this explorer and what kind of parts i can get. Thanks guys

      Welcome to the Forum. :wavey:
      FYI, just scroll through the various threads in this sub forum. They are full of performance mods and others that are available and have been done. No need to have them all reposted again. Good luck. :thumbsup:

      Well, I think we need to start with what engine is inside of your Limited? Is it the 2L, 3.5L NA or the 3.5L EcoBoost? All 3 options were available for that model year.

      If it is either 3.5L option tuning is the best mod that you could ever do! Unfortunately, we do not offer tuning for the smallest 2L offering.

      It would also help to know what motor you have. 3.5 N/A or the 2.0L Ecoboost

      Your product information states you offer 87, 89, 91 & 93 octane performance tunes. Does the customer get all 4 octane tunes or does the customer have only one choice and that's what they get? I assume Ford's power train warranty will be voided with any after-market tune.

      It will only be void if Ford corp remotes into the PCM via the dealer and downloads certain files that will alert them. Dealers do not have access to this and unless you have a catastrophic failure, I would not be worried.

      I'd be more worried about boosted vehicles and tunes that are extreme then a N/A tune.

      We offer performance or tow centric tuning for all 4 octanes. That makes a total of 8, and your tuner can hold 4 of the 8 at any given time.

      As for warranty, just be educated:

      ​​http://www.semasan.com/semaga/images/warranty_ftc.pdf

      http://www.bipac.net/page.asp?content=warranty_consumer&g=semaga

      None of our tuning is "extreme". If you polled all of the forums that we are on you will not find a tuning failure. We have a long and spotless record!

      I realize this was in a Livernois thread but my comment was more a general statement and nothing against your products whatsoever. It was more of a "I wouldn't be concerned running a N/A tune".

      Number of Tunes in the Tuner

      I just purchased and received your tuner for my 3.5L N/A, and was told it can only hold two custom and the stock tune. Is this true?

      I think that there might have been a miscommunication. Your tuner can hold 2 tunes total. One is your custom file from us. The other, is going to be your updated stock file. So your tuner can hold 2 tunes with one of them being your stock tune.

      Actually, my tuner was updated with two tunes available: 87 Performance and 93 Performance. I installed 87 Performance and I assume the stock tune was copied back to the tuner. If I decide to re-install the stock tune, will the 87 Performance then be copied back to the tuner for future use?

      Ok, I know this is a somewhat old thread but, I just purchased the tuner for my N/A 3.5L and I'm wating for the tunes to show up of which I put in an outrageous request for more tunes than you can put on the dang thing:D. However, after learning how many custom tunes I could have installed, I chose another octane number that doesn't seem to be available (92) and will probably end up with the 91 tune as the highest tune as I chose the other one to be the 87 tune. That said, I wonder if there has been any updates in gains since the start of this thread. Not to be nit picky but, the video of the Ex on the dyno is a 2wd and so the original numbers are for that drive train. I'm wondering if a dyno has been done on a 4 wheel dyno for the 4wd model and if there is any differences in gains or if it's just a split in the original numbers? This question is for the N/A engine. :thumbsup:
