Sorry if this is a duplicate.
I was on the road all day yesterday from Colorado to Texas and back. My buddy has a 2018 screw 3.5 Lariat with 5 Star Tuning. I have a 22 Screw 3.5 Platinum. We were towing our 26' trailers with cars. My setup was about 600lbs lighter than him, and mine is a V-nose vs. his flat nose. We kept swapping who was lead to try the drafting thing. Sure sure, lots and lots of variables here. At first when we filled up together I was 50 miles to E less than him and added 3 more gallons of gas than him. By the end of the trip, I added 6-1/2 more gallons that him!!!! That's insane!

Can you guys help me with who you believe is the best tuner, with the best gains, for the best price? Black Friday is going on right now so I don't have much time to pull the trigger!

5 Star is on sale at $600, I don't know the HP gains, and I have to load the tune from outside the truck.
Goose Tuned in "on sale" at $945, 100hp gain, and you load the tune from inside the truck.

Based on my personal experience with 5-star rating, I can say that the investment was worth it. Running 93 on Map 3 gives me a speed of around 100, and it's quite noticeable. My truck is incredibly fast with my 35s.



The product I have is the ---


-Ford F150 EcoBoost/Raptor JB4 Tuner with V3 Harness. It comes with one V3 sensor and one V2 sensor, which are typically found in 2021+ models.

-JB4 Wireless Mobile Smart Phone Kit, which enhances its functionality.

@Polo08816 So what are you telling/asking me on this F150 forum? Your question makes no sense:
"Do you if this truck was running one of these tunes?"

I ended up ordering the 5-Star tune. If I want a 2nd tune from Goose, I have to pay $125 for each on after the 1st one that's included. $635 out the door, I'm good.

I’m personally running GooseTuned, and I like having Winfield help me personally whenever I need his help. (7 days a week, 24 hours a day).

I hear you on the customer service, but that initial price and paying for each additional tune has me running away, great service or not.

Coming from someone who has tuned about 30 of his own toys, you can’t put a price on customer service for someone that controls how well (or terrible) you vehicle not only runs & performs, but shifts as well.

most of us are driving 70k+ trucks, there are places to save money, but tuning isn’t one of them for me. 👍🏻

24/7? Like it's 3am and hey Goose, can you make my shifts 100 rpm lower and he gets up and takes care of it?
