Awesome Tuner/Monitor with Custom Tunes
When you've stacked on some serious performance upgrades to your 2013 to 2017 Explorer Sport 3.5L EcoBoost SUV or if you're planning on doing some major upgrades, you're going to need the best custom PCM tuning that you can find to keep your truck from hurting itself and to maximize your power outputs. We got with our friends over at 5-Star tuning and have come up with this SCT Livewire TS+ kit that comes pre-loaded with a powerful custom tune that takes advantage of your truck's performance parts to get you the power you need without hurting your Explorer's 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine. Even if your truck is stock, or near-stock, a custom tune can get you much better performance than the competition's generic canned tunes to better meet your specific application.
Easily Tunes and Displays Gauges
On top of the aggressive and powerful tuning, the Liverwire is also a versatile performance monitor that allows you to keep a close watch over your truck's engine functions. The Livewire features a complete touch screen display that allows for easy customization and the ability to display a wide variety of gauges and other information instantly. The Livewire hooks into your truck's OBD-II port where it pulls its monitoring information and uploads its awesome 5-Star Custom Tune. The Livewire TS+ even has built-in WiFi capability that allows you to download new tunes and firmware updates wirelessly. The Livewire tuner comes with a windshield suction mount, OBD-II cable, and a USB for downloading new software and tunes from your home PC.

How our EcoBoost Custom Tuning Works
After you order your tuner, you are sent a "blank"
tuner without any custom tunes. We'll then send you an email that needs to be completely filled out and emailed back to us. However, you'll need to have your tuner before you can complete the form. If you don't receive a tune email within one business day, check your spam or junk mail folders. After your tuner arrives, you'll need to hook it into your vehicle and get your PCM Strategy Code
and put it in your tune email next to "Strategy". Email your completed tune email back to [email protected]
. After we receive your completed tune information, the tune itself will be built and sent to you via email as an attachment. Download the tunes .cef files to your computer and use your updated SCT software from SCT's website to upload the tunes to your tuner. Please be aware that SCT's devices and software are only compatible with Microsoft Windows computers, and will not work with Mac OS X, Linux, or other operating systems
. Once the tunes are in the tuner, you can then tune your truck. If you need more information or assistance, check out our Tuning How-To blog post
. If we find that your Explorer is behind on its latest TSB strategy updates, we may require you to have your TSB updates performed at your dealership of choice. Read our TSB Update blog post

Custom Tuning and Spark Plugs: we here at Stage 3 and the folks at 5-Star Tuning strongly recommend getting a new set of Ford Motorcraft SP-534 Iridium Spark Plugs and gapping them down to .030". If you already have new SP-534 plugs, please check their gapping before tuning. Off-Road Exhaust Systems:
5-Star can no longer provide custom tuning for off-road exhaust systems that delete catalytic converters. 5-Star can only tune for catted exhaust systems. However, 5-Star WILL NOT disable your rear oxygen sensors, which may result in a check engine light.
