      So i'm a new Ford Explorer owner, purchased a new 2017 a few months back with the factory 5000# tow package so we could pull a new trailer that we ordered. its got a dry weight of 3300#, small frontal area so it should be very easy to pull IMO. The one thing that i want to get is a chip programmer to make the transmission more stiff durring pulling plus give me a bit of better gas mileage in all situations. i just came from a Ford Escape 1.5 Ecooboost and loved the gas mileage on it and am looking to get better mileage now plus the better towing performance. The STC X4 has been recommended to me and i wanted some experienced feedback from Ford Explorer owners who have used this product. I live in Canada and can purchase it for just over $400 taxes/shipping included

      The STC X4 is hardware. More important is the programming that goes into it. There are quite a few tuners who use the STC X4 platform for their tunes - 5 Star, Unleashed, etc.

      That said, there are a lot of happy Livernois tune users on this site. Livernois uses their own device rather than the STC X4.

      I just recently used an SCT X4 on my 2017 Sport. I have yet to load a custom tune but the stock program for 91 octane from the SCT flash update seemed pretty good. The trans does shift more aggressive than stock. And my gas mpg's increased from 13mpg daily driven city to 15mpg. Also lead foot, doesn't help.
