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

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
