aftermarket tune warranty

anyone done this or looked into it.

http://www.stage3motorsports.com/Sta...tom-Tunes.html

buy a 5 star ecoboost tune and get a warranty for $500 5 year /60k

or roush has a tune, intake and optional warranty.

http://www.roushperformance.com/part...ck-level1.html
plus $500 for 3 year 36k warranty



seems like $500 for a warranty is cheap insurance for these trucks.

I don't remember having the option for a warranty when I bought my tunes from 5*. I can say their tunes are great. I've put something like 100,000 miles on them and have no complaints.

They started that maybe 2 years ago. Havent heard anything bad like its a scam etc. 5 star is known for really safe tunes even though they are pretty mild compared to others. I had 3 t star tunes on my 2013 and probably put 20k on them and i always said its the way the truck should've come from the factory. Then i found MPT that i put 50k on and never touched my 5 star again so to speak

ordered the Roush.
http://www.roushperformance.com/part...ck-level1.html

couple of reasons. the dealer i purchased truck from is a Roush dealer, feel like they will be more mod friendly.

for resale, the roush name carries weight.

they tell me i can run 87, 91 or 93 octance with no problem, truck just makes less power. maybe they all do that, i dont know.

I paid extra to have it dynoed, so when i get it i will post results.

i desided on just the tune and intake kit, no exhaust. i just dont like the sound of loud v-6

Can't fault you for that. That is the one thing I wish was better on these engines. The intake sounds are all good, the exhaust note is lacking. My Audi S4 has a turbo V6 and it sounds pretty good. I wish the truck sounded more like it.
