whats involved in installing it? is it a flash firmware over OBD or replace PCM?

Posted by Beau388 on Jan 18, 2019 at 11:57 PM

I flashes. The support from 5 star is fantastic. It took three tries to get the exact shifting pattern, I wanted on my light coach with the numerically low rear end gear (4.30:1). I emailed customer support the number of my current tune and the problems I was experiencing and in about 4 working days a new tune arrived by e-mail. What more could you want?

The tuner was recently updated so it is running the latest f/w version and yes, all documentation is in tack with the tuner.

If this was for the "E450" V10 2 valve engine I would be all over it.

But you have the F53 chassis with 3 valve V10 so its a different tune than mine.

I just wanted to point his out for the owners of the Axis/Vegas/C-class RV's. This will only work on the 3 valve v10 engines (53 chassis) RV's.

Thanks.

Thank you for coming forth. I went back at him asking if each 'new' tune was an additional $65. Let's see what he comes back with. Sorry about peeling back this onion but I have to know.

How do you find out if your Ford V10 Triton is a two valve or a three valve? I originally thought they were all three valve, hence the name, Triton.

My understanding is if you have an E-350 or E-450 chassis you have the 2 valve engine. The 3 valve is only used in the F-53 chassis. The larger 3 valve heads won't fit the tight E series engine compartment.

That is my understanding as well. Hence the differnce in HP and TQ rates when you look at the Thor website for each RV.

I tried 300. You're barking up the wrong tree.

Here's what I was told.[/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR] [FONT=Arial][/FONT][FONT=Arial] [/FONT] [FONT=Arial][/FONT][COLOR=#1f497d][FONT=Arial][COLOR=black]The hardware is still usable and about 1 to 2yrs old, based on the model number. You'll burn a lock because it's a different vehicle (VIN). Its Unmarried so you're ok there. L&W is correct in that if the engines are different it won't work. You'll have to order a new tune to the tune of $125 so add that to the cost. Email tunes are free after that and the HW can be used on 3 more vehicles (VINs) before you pay to have it 'unlocked' (max is 5 vehicles, tunes are $125ea unless engines are same, then you only burn a lock).[/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR] [FONT=Arial][/FONT][FONT=Arial] [/FONT] [FONT=Arial][/FONT][COLOR=#1f497d][FONT=Arial][COLOR=black]Unless the price drops to 175 or 200 - for a total of 3 or 325 for a different motor config - it may only be cost-justified to people who have the same engine he does/did.[/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR] [FONT=Arial][/FONT][FONT=Arial] [/FONT] [FONT=Arial][/FONT][COLOR=#1f497d][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][COLOR=black]Hope that helps someone.[/COLOR][/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR]
