Anyone install it? A forum search let me down a rabbit hole of lack of info. I'm thinking about it. Also, can you download the stock tune on another device? Any warranty issues with ford? Noticeable enough increase in HP/TQ?

I fix software bugs!
I owned a 2023 XLT 3.5 EB for a couple of weeks and looked into the same. I found some owners love it and some say it did very little. So I called Whipple about it. They convinced me it was better than factory. I think the biggest thing to note is the lower intake air temperatures and better throttle response.
Also, can you download the stock tune on another device?
I'm not sure what you're asking here? The kit comes with a programmer and a tune specifically for the kit. Whipple said the kit effects the A/F mixture enough to need a tune plus all the other goodies the tune provides. I don't believe you can restore the factory tune if you want to go back to stock, you need the dealer or FDRS. Whereas Livernois, SCT, 5-Star, and the like let you restore the factory tune. I could be wrong on this. Certainly an email to Whipple (they are very good at responding) will confirm.
Any warranty issues with ford?
I imagine there will be. I know my dealer frowns on changing anything, except a CAT back exhaust :rolleyes:
Noticeable enough increase in HP/TQ?
They claim some decent HP/TQ improvements. I felt the best thing about the kit are the tune changes and the lower intake temps.
