Select Tunes by Octane and Performance
5-Star's tunes turn up your 2011 to 2014 F150 3.7L's power by adjusting its fuel curves, ignition timing, fan control, and a ton of other variables so that your truck 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 F150 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.
With its factory tune, 5-Star's test truck put down peak numbers of 220 horsepower and and 218lb-ft of torque. With 5-Star's 93 octane Performance/Tow tune, their truck managed to throw down 233 horsepower and 229lb-ft of torque, a gain of 13 horsepower and 11lb-ft of torque. While the peak gains aren't overly dramatic, 5-Star's 93 octane Performance Tune provided a whopping 210lb-ft of torque at 2500rpm, while the factory tune barely managed to crank out 170lb-ft, and not flattening back out until 2700 rpm. That's a 40lb-ft difference in low-end torque that now comes in earlier than stock, meaning you can still get improved low-end grunt, even if you stick with lower-tier fuel.
