    a while back i purchased an SCT x4 for my 04 4.0 to help correct the speedo and pull some extra power out of my v6. low and behold i just went to get a tune from henson performance but they have closed up shop???

    does anyone else make custom tunes on the forum for our explorers? or am i SOL on this one??

    any input is greatly appreciated

    Pontisteve?

    I think Pontisteve may be an SCT tuner. Try sending him a PM and ask him.

    Dang, Henson is out of the business? I've heard good things about Lund as well as Torrie from Unleashed tuning. Wish you luck!

    Edit: Just checked his website and FB page and sure enough, he's done. Bummer.

    I was never happy with his tunes, or his ability to tune. He just seemed to fumble through it, and could not modify or understand changes that a competent tuner should be an expert at.

    James helped me a lot over net with data-logging
    tuning my 2005 supercharged-explorer
    because I am not living in the USA , but I can still enjoy my explorer
    SO what you said is very very offensive

    I agree and my experience with him was very good. Very prompt when replying, answered any questions I had and my Explorer runs very well with his tunes. However, there is always a time when someone else has a different experience and it is what it is.

    i have nothing but good things to say about the tune. i went with an 87 and 89 octane tune. really firmed up my shifts and accounted for my larger tires. after my next wave of mods i will definately go to them for my future tunes
