Anyone have any information on this? I'd love to improve the shifting of my 10 speed transmission and want to make sure I get a good tune.

Thanks for your help

I contacted Livernois myself to see when and they said that it was going to be awhile until they would have one to do testing on. I offered them my truck since they are local to me. They got back with me and said they would need my truck for a month. I asked if I would get a tuner for free and they said I could get one for 50% off. Wasn't worth it to me not having the truck for a month.

It wouldn’t be worth it even if they offered it for free.

Did they specifically say it wouldn’t work? I mean, it is the same engine. I’m tempted to buy it and try it. Pedal Monster makes one for the 3.5 and it works perfectly fine on the PB. Thinking of trying that for now. I had a Livernois tune on my 16 3.5, and mercy, what a difference it made.

Just an update from an email request I put in to Livernois:

"very soon! We finally got a truck to keep for a while to get it done, and let me tell you. The Numbers are crazy!! Like really crazy. You are going to like. Its all dynoed and done, we are just driving it around for a few days"

Ryan thanks for your interest in Livernois for your tuning, we are currently working on this platform. I do not have an ETA as of now when we will be releasing still in the tresting stage, Dave

Do you guys know if a Livernois tune would smooth out PB 10R80 shift issues? And if you need to go in for warranty is it just as simple as deleting the tune (flashing the OEM tune back)?

The Powerboost is so highly engineered. Do you really trust a small shop to mess with it?

I could be wrong but I'm not sure Livernoise is flashing the pcm. Or put another way, I don't think they are tuning the traditional manner that pre 2021 F150's would be tuned. I could be wrong.

Get the TSB performed for the harsh 1-3 upshift. Made a world of difference on mine and I wouldn't say I had any issues with how it was shifting before.

Any chance you know the tsb number?
21-2407. I have to believe mine came from the factory with this programming (late September build) because I’ve never been able to figure out the 1-3 shift issues people have when driving mine. So it must help lol. Honestly, my 2-3 is worse than 1-3. It only does 1-3 when I’m accelerating at a crawl, definitely not keeping up with traffic. It’s usually 1-2-3
