The nGauge device hooks right into F150's OBD-II port and easily uploads your choice of 5-Star custom tune to your 2018 5.0L F150 in practically no time. The nGauge can also display just about any information your F150 outputs through its OBD-II port as a handy gauge so that you know exactly what's going on with your aggressive F150's big V8 engine.
Powerful and Ergonomic nGauge Tuning Device
The nGauge is a powerful OBD-II programmer that can upload tunes, display important engine running information, and read and clear DTCs all in one thin, compact device. The nGauge was carefully designed to fit into most standard-sized gauge pods and take up as little room as possible while still have a legible screen. The nGauge uses an included stylus for use with its screen and navigating its menus. The nGauge has a programmable shift light and can datalog just about any engine parameter that you have in mind. The nGauge connects to your home computer using an included USB cord and uses HP Tuners's MPVI interface to upload tunes to the device or download datalogging information. Alternatively, you can use the nGauge's integrated MicroSD card to transfer and store information.
Select Tunes by Octane and Performance
5-Star's tunes can turn up your 2018 F150 5.0L's power by adjusting its fuel curves, ignition timing, fan control, and a ton of other variables so that your F150 makes huge amounts of horsepower and torque. 5-Star's custom tuning even takes into account tire size, drivetrain, and axle ratio so that your truck operates perfectly with your choice of tune. 5-Star's custom tunes are available in several variations for 87, 89, 91, or 93 octane gasoline to give you a wide range of tuning options. 5-Star's Performance/Tow tunes even do double-duty as Economy Tunes by tapping into your F150's driving modes. When you select Economy Mode while using a 5-Star Performance/Tow Tune, the tuning automatically adjusts its shifting, timing, and other parameters to maximize fuel economy, making the Performance/Tow tunes two tunes in one.
5-Star Dyno Results

When using a 5-Star 93 octane Performance Tune, their test truck threw down 400 peak horsepower and 405lb-ft of peak torque
