So far so good! I was able to calibrate my tires to 37” and after driving around with the tune, my bronco doesn’t feel heavy anymore with the added weight from the tires! It feels more responsive than stock as well!
Hey nice post. Do you mind sharing the setting you used to move to the 37"s? I've been finding it hard to source any winter options in the 37"s. Any recommendations for snow and ice?
Thanks

As many others have said, the shift schedule alone is worth the price of entry. First thing I noticed was the whining and whirring in low gear followed by clunking into gear is gone. The shifting is now seamless, linear and smooth.

Aside from that, the gain in power is definitely notable, and that's just in the standard mode. No scientific measurement, but I gained upwards of 1-2 MPG.

Unless FP / Borg Warner offer a set of larger turbos, the FP tune and S&B filter is all I need for the 2.7L engine, and if I need more, there's Sport Mode, but I don't see the need for an IC or CAI.

I bought my Pro Cal from Lethal Performance and had it sitting around for several months. Finally was able to get it installed at the dealership for $155 (1 Hour labor). It has been installed for about 3 weeks now. As several have mentioned the shifting improvements in the 10 speed are tremendous! Definitely worth the price of admission and even more so at the current sale price which is less than I paid. The seat of the pants HP/TQ improvement is nice too. Nothing that will blow you away, but still a nice bump in power IMHO. That along with the transmission just behaving and shifting so much better, smoother, and with less gear jumping is a such a pleasure to drive. Wish I had done it sooner. Now to get my Eibachs and my new wheel/tire combo installed and test out the Pro Cal for changing tire sizes!

Has anyone had any warranty issues at all with this tune installed? Also, how does a Ford Performance warranty differ from the regular factory warranty (per Lethal's post above: "can retain a 3/36k Ford Performance warranty if done by a Ford dealership (or ASE certified technician")?

I have been hovering over the buy button all weekend.

I posted this on a different thread, but since it seems to be coming up here too, i thought i would try and help....so, this is what i learned...

Wow....i didn't realize how muddy the water is with these FP tunes and Ford warranties. I was reading about it on the Mustang and Ranger forums in regards to the 2.7 ecoboost. Below is the Ranger thread i just read. I think I understand now. Under 3yrs/36k, any issues to the Bronco, that is caused by the FP tune, is picked up by the FP warranty. After the bumper-to-bumper warranty expires, any issues caused by the FP tune is on your dime, BUT you don't lose your powertrain warranty....it remains intact. If you have a powertrain issue, and it is NOT caused by the FP tune, then your powertrain warranty will cover the repair(s). I guess the trick here is rather or not the issue is blamed on the FP tune under the powertrain warranty period....

Thanks, CrazyPete - great find! I suppose it is impossible to predict what Ford might decide in the future is an "adverse impact" from the tune, but it's good to see some specific language on the topic. It is interesting that it specifically says that Ford Performance parts are considered aftermarket parts.

It doesn't make the buy decision any easier for the 2.7L tune though!

Just drove 1600 miles with the FP installed. So much smoother and just enough extra juice to make the 2.7 come alive. Hit the button!

I hear ya. I'm still leaning towards getting the FP tune. I just have a hard time believing that Ford would screw over one of it own companies, but if it can get them out of warranty coverage, then maybe. The flip side, a bad customer experience travels fast nowadays too.

Okay, I just ordered the tune from Lethal Performance. I have read everything about the tune I can find, and I think that warranty concerns are valid (Ford could do a much better job clarifying the warranty implications!), but it's an acceptable risk. I will have a dealer/ASE tech do the installation and I'll follow the warranty registration process.

Ultimately, I want the power and transmission benefits and the ability to program a slightly larger tire size. The ASS setting memory and the DTC reading are also nice to have.

Do we have confirmation the current FPT will work on the 24's? I'm assuming they will. Considering having the dealer install it when my Wildtrak comes in and before I even pick it up. I have a 150 now and know all too well the weird 10-speed trans funkiness.

I recall there was a lag for certifying the 2023's. I think Ford has to certify every model year.
