How Does The Process Work? Below is a step-by-step overview of our custom tuning process.

  1. Plug your device into the vehicles OBDII port. The device will automatically power on.
    1. If the device does not automatically power on, you likely have a blown fuse that needs replacing. It will be the same fuse as the cigarette lighter and 12v accessory port. 
  2. Select “Program Vehicle” by selecting the center button on your X4 and follow the onscreen device prompts for key cycles on and off.
    1. The first time tuning your vehicle will take some time. The device will save your stock file in addition to tuning your application.

    1. If the device states “unsupported vehicle” use the steps outlined below to obtain your ecu strategy code and/or ecu swpn. 
  4. After you select your tune, you will have user adjustable options. Continue with this step or arrow to the right and select approve to skip. After this step, custom programming will begin.
  5. Once tuning has completed the device will show download complete and will prompt you to turn the key off. At this point, you may disconnect your device.
  1. If in step 3.1 you received an “unsupported vehicle” message we will need your ecu strategy code or ecu swpn prior to writing your custom tune.
  2. Email your vehicles ecu strategy code to Below is the needed vehicle information: 
    1. For 1996 – 2014 vehicles: calibration codes are listed under “ECU Strategy”

5 reviews for 2016-2020 Ford 6.8L F-53 RV/Motorhome with Preloaded 5 Star Custom Tunes (MotorHome Magazine Reader’s Choice Award Winner!) 7015FS

  1. Ms. Frankie

    Talk about happy campers! We purchased and installed the 5 Star Tuning for our Ford V10 in our 2016 Miramar 34.1 last Sunday. Installation was a breeze! Hubby drove it for the first time yesterday and what a difference. Acceleration improved, transmission shifted smoothly and did not labor, and OMG…it was quieter! One issue is the right lead foot on my darling husband…he didn’t realize how much the speed increases more quickly. Thank you 5 Star!

  2. Chris Menzies

    Thank you for your speedy response. I was able to download it, after a couple of missteps on my part, I plan to take it out this weekend to see how it drives. I installed this on a 2017 FR3 class a motorhome. Your company has really good reviews on several websites. I am going to add mine as well. 5stars…

    installed and drove less than 2 miles seems to shift good and ease in take off, I had tech walk me the second time to insure install was correct I will report findings after longer drive when time permits

    I have had this tune on my F53 V-10 RV for 2 years now, what a difference from the stock tune. More power, acceleration, and hill climbing ability. Smoother shifting without the low gear ‘roar’ you get, so better shift points. Did not seem to affect my MPG at all. I have about 20K miles on it and could not be happier. Great job 5Star!!

  5. Robert McGirr

    My previous class A was an older 32 with a Chev V8 fitted with the full Banks Power package. I was always impressed with the power on this rig. Recently purchased a newer 33 Itasca Class A with the Ford V10 and was really disappointed with the power and acceleration. I was considering the Banks package and Five Star recommended the tuner.

    Purchased and installed it just prior to our annual trip south. I am blown away with the difference in power and acceleration. Hill climbing towing a flatdeck with two ATVs is a breeze. The engine braking shift points are improved and really effective. The Itasca is a heavier higher rig and I believe it performs better than my previous rig with the Banks package with the Five Star Tuner!
    In short it feels like someone dropped a bigger better engine in when we weren’t looking. After 5000 miles testing I am really pleased with the results. Gas mileage did not seem to be affected either way. Unbeatable “bang for the buck”
