Stage 3's 5-Star Tuning Limited Powertrain Warranties even cover a massive range of powerful F150 performance parts and the tuning to go along with them so that you can turn your F150 into an utter monster while still being protected if you have issues that your local dealership or Ford itself won't cover because of your 5-Star Custom Tune or the performance parts that are on your vehicle. We're currently offering a 2-year/24,000 mile warranty for $250, 5-Year/60,000 mile warranty for $500, and a 6-Year/100,000 mile warranty for $1000. Either of the warranties will kick in the moment when a dealer or Ford decline Powertrain repairs due to 5-Star's Custom Tuning or combination of performance parts combined with 5-Star's Tuning. You read all of the details in our Warranty Terms and Conditions Packet. Our warranties only cover custom tuning from 5-Star Tuning purchased from Stage 3. PCM tunes from other tuners, retailers, or vendors do not qualify. If you've previously purchased a 5-Star Custom Tune from Stage 3 and want to get in on the warranty program, give us a call directly at 1-877-578-2433.
That being said, combining a few F150 performance parts with PCM tuning is going to get your truck the best results. Our "Phased" performance packages are a perfect example, and we have even have dyno results from testing our F150 Phase 1 and Phase 2 kits on our 2012 FX4 Project Truck. Our Phase 1 kit includes an aFe Stage 2 Cold Air Intake, aFe Cat-Back Exhaust Kit, and an SCT Livewire Tuner and Dash monitor with SCT's "canned" performance tunes. The Phase 1 kit added 18 horsepower and 8lb-ft of torque to our truck's crankshaft on low-grade 91 octane gasoline.
While the Phase 1 kit was decent, we needed to give our project truck some more kick, so we got our Phase 2 package installed as quick as we could. Our Phase 2 package comes with same intake and cat-back as our Phase 1 kit, but also comes with a 2011 to 2014 F150 5.0L BBK 85mm throttle body and a Livewire tuner that's pre-loaded with custom tunes from 5-Star Tuning. On our truck's dyno run with the Phase 2 kit, gained 31 horsepower and 19lb-ft of torque on low-grade 91 octane gas. While the BBK throttle body probably helped, 5-Star's custom tune did the grunt work and got our truck most of its gains, not to mention improved drivability thanks to alterations in the transmission software.
