Default Do I tune the F150

$700 for +75whp and 100 ft lbs. This is crazy tempting. Low 13 quarter mile in a stock truck with just a tune is just nuts to me..technology ftw

For those that don't know I have an '18 CC 3.5/10sp 4wd F150

Anyone ever take their Ford in for warranty work after a tune was installed?

Stock for a couple more years unless you find a dealer that’s going to honor warranty. You have toys to play around with beside this thing.

Leave it stock.

The urge to toss headers and a whipple on the Raptor is yuuuge. Then I realize it's just a fucking truck and my DD.

Headers and whipple are big $$ and a PITA. Tune is cheap and easy

But i'm totally with you on the "just a truck and my DD"

But then I think about how quick low 13's in a big ass truck is, and how fun it'd be

Aaaaaaaaaaahh

Yeah.

But.

Whipple.

I feel my truck is fast for what it is with big ass 35s having to spin. I can't imagine how quick these new aluminum body 5.0s are comparatively.

I used Torrie to tune my Lincoln....top notch dude.

I'm having the same debate with my F150. I have my SCT tuner from my Lincoln...so its only $130 or something to get a new tune from Torrie for my F150.

$130...like you said...to add ~70hp and ~100tq. Its tempting as hell, I'm just nervous to do it with the truck still being so new and having so much warranty left.

I'll probably end up saying F it and doing it this summer...
