    If you read properly, I never said your opinion wasn't valid, I said it was an overstatment.

    I'm too chicken to do something like this with a brand new car. I instead bought a 10 year extended warranty. Car has more than enough power for daily driving.

    Aside from changing out the tstat and MAP, it's all software.

    Still too scared. Changing software can push limits. Pushing limits can break things and increase wear and tear and warranty denial.

    That's definitely a risk, thus why I'm still hesitant to even add the RX catch can bolt-on.

    Ford would do well to support a warranty friendly mod program, like they are doing with the Mustang.

    I asked the Explorer Program Engineers that exact question, the Ford lawyers wont approve them doing that for a family hauler SUV.

    Mustang is a different animal from the lawyer's view.

    I return mine to stock every time it goes to the dealer. And i even had my PTU replaced with my tune IN place. They never knew or not sure how they could track it if say your tranny went ect as long as you return it to stock

    Bump. Anyone hear anything from SCT yet? I called them and they said MY17 F-150 3.5LTT tunes would be out in July, so the guy on the phone assumed the Explorer would too.

    I had an SCT X4 and after months of promised dates I gave up and bought the Livernois tuner, never looked back, their EcoBoost tune for the 17 Sport 3.5 TT had some minor hiccups but it keeps getting better and the guys there actually listen and are open to constructive feedback.

    SGT, I am sure you are thinking the same thing I am, but 29PSI of boost isn't possible.
