Why Tune My Vehicle? From the factory, your vehicle?s computer is calibrated for the masses, designed with the average driver in mind, not the performance enthusiast. This not only leaves valuable horsepower & torque hidden inside your vehicle but it also makes for a mediocre driving experience. Our tuners unlock your vehicle?s hidden performance by re-calibrating your vehicle?s PCM for maximum horsepower & torque, increase throttle response, clean shift points, increased efficiency and the best driving experience possible.

Why 5 Star Tuning??We are your industry leader in Ford and GM truck, car, SUV and motorhome tuning. We create and offer the most refined tunes on the market for your application. Rather than offering you a one-sized fits all approach we custom tailor all of your tunes to your specific needs. These needs can be more power, more torque, tuning for your current or future modifications or simply getting the best driving experience from your vehicle. In addition to our refined approach to tuning vehicle, we ensure your vehicle?s reliability will never be compromised.

Dyno & Street Proven Tunes! Our 5 Star Tuning custom tunes have been dyno developed, refined, tested repeatedly, street tested, tow tested and driven all over the country in our own personal vehicles. Nothing says the highest quality tune on the market such as investing in our own vehicles and testing them for over a million test miles by our own engineers.

Free Tunes for Life! Have you added a new mod to your truck, car, SUV or motorhome and wish to maximize your application?s performance? For all of our Tunes for Life members, these modifications are free for the life of your vehicle while you own it. This will ensure that your vehicle run properly with our dyno and street tested tunes give you the most horsepower, torque, and most efficient performance possible with your newest addition.

Want More Performance??A 5 Star Tuning Custom will dramatically improve your drivability, horsepower, torque, throttle response, efficiency, and towing capacity. Eliminate your factory speed limiter, sluggish throttle, sloppy shifts and lackadaisical nature of your vehicle.

How Do We Get More Performance??Our tunes bring the most potential out of your vehicle by adjusting your fuel tables, drive by wire, timing, torque converter, shift strategies and shift pressures. Visit our Custom Tuning Info section for more detailed information for your specific vehicle.

It can easily load store up to 10 of your 5 Star Tuning custom tunes. Your device can also be used to monitor your vehicle engine parameters.

    I have had mine in my 2016 Holiday Rambler Vacationer with the Ford V10...........The tune is awesome! Like a totally new engine under the hood with this tune. Easy to install. Highly recommended.

    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"

    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!!

    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...

    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 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!
