To my mind after having read all the benefits of the 5 Star Tune's the biggest one---at least relating to the 5.4--is being able to better dial in the shift points of the transmission, whichever version you have installed.
While the 5.4 isn't a V10 nor a diesel they seem to have adequte power for most uses I've seen described or shared here. Acutually I'm pleasantly shocked they fare so well in the SMB world especially with a 4x4 installed package.
Mike at 5 Star is always open to discussing how to customize any tune he'd provide to best suit the individual user. Its a $500 (+/-) electronic modification that's easily installed and reversible without a lot of effort. The testimonials on FTE say so much about this product I'd not be too hard to persuade into plopping my money down.
