    I don't have a solution for you, but just wanted to perhaps reassure (not that this is all that reassuring, haha) you the 'delay' you're speaking of isn't just TT related. My 3.5NA will do this occasionally, normally at the most inopportune times.

    For those of you with the tune, did you have any issues getting warranty work done (whether flashed back to stock or tune intact)?

    Dear Livernois, One final question and I think I'm ready to buy a tune. My dog often rides with me in the Explorer and she's getting old so I always turn the selector to "Snow" mode so it softens the gas pedal response so she's not tossed around as much. Will the "Snow" mode operate any differently after the tune?

    Thanks!

    Tony

    I don't think @Livernois is going to respond. They haven't been on the forum since November of last year and they're no longer a sponsor of the site. Which is a shame, because he/she was very helpful.

    Oh wow, I was not aware of that. Yes, that's a huge bummer for all of us.

    Does anyone know why? Peter?

    It isn't available yet though so I doubt that is what he was running against.

    Do you know if this will connect to the NAV display via blue tooth on my 2016 Explorer Sport?
    That would be a great large screen display if it is capable of doing so?

    I bought my Livernois tune on the 18th, received the tuning box the 23rd, sent them the info that day and I'm still waiting for my tune. They said my calibration is newer and they need their head calibrator to work on a tune for me. I'm a returning customer of theirs, but I'm not very impressed with the service thus far. I was told I may need to wait up to three days which was yesterday and when I checked today, they now have no ETA. They just said they'll check in with the guy in between dyno tuning sessions and for me to be patient. Awesome!

    Not sure what is happening with them. They are no longer a site vendor and their last post in the Forum was November 18, 2016.

    Figured I'd give my experience. I ordered my tuner last month. Emailed them for the tune and didn't hear back, so I called them two days later. They then emailed me my tunes later that day after the phone call.

    A week ago I emailed them asking to adjust the shift firmness on the tune. They responded within hours saying that they hadn't had a request to go softer on the shifting, so they'd have to have the calibrator guy make a new one for me. They said it'd take a week but had it to me in two days.

    Other than the initial wait, I've found that they've been very responsive to my inquiries and requests. Anthony also spent a good amount of time on the phone explaining my options.

    I got my 3BAR + 160 stat tune on Tuesday, but it didn't include the change in tire size for my 15 PIU Ecoboost. It took a couple more days to get the revised tunes with the adjusted tire size. I didn't know the first tunes didn't have the tire correction until I verified with GPS my speedometer was still off.

    Overall, I'm happy with the tune. I first loaded the 89 Performance tune and it was good. Today when I flashed it, I went with the 91 Performance tune. The only thing which I may work with them on is softening up the 1-2 and 2-3 shifts. I'll put another hundred miles on the Explorer before pushing on that though. I'm just happy my speedometer is now spot on.

    It will bark the tires on the 1-2 shift and it downright hauls ass. One thing that I would say to PIU Ecoboost owners (and they are pretty rare), is that don't expect as much of a difference when compared to a retail Explorer Sport. The PIU has a much more aggressive shift schedule stock, and that's normally the one thing I've noticed most when tuning my Ford vehicles. In this case, it's not much different, other than firmer. I think it's actually shifting sooner, which to me isn't a bad thing. The power increase is significant and it's very linear. Plus if you baby it, you wouldn't know there is any change from stock. Anything over 1/8th throttle lets you know that something has changed. :)

    Getting to 60 with light throttle is effortless and I'm pretty sure my MPG is up. I'll put a few hundred miles on it and report back. Overall, I really only wanted to fix my speedometer, since it was about 5% off. I'll probably end up running the 87 or 89 tune long term, since I really wasn't going for a real performance boost and I'd rather not abuse the powertrain. It's an SUV and I have a 17 Shelby GT350 if I want to haul ass. :)
