Came across this why browsing tonight, and just curious as to whether anyone has any experience with using it? Claims to boost hp and torque without voiding the factory warranty.

I have been curious about the module as well, is it to be used instead of a tuner? Can you use it with a tuner? Would there be any benefit from using both or is it just one or the other?

it can be used "On top" of a tuner. It doesnt re program the computer like a tuner does, it "Lies" to the PCM. So you could use it on top of a tuner. Im going to bet most tuners would tell you not to. Id be looking for this on a stock application with maybe a cold air and exhaust. I dont think id go throwing this on top of a custom tuned truck with many mods. Just my 2 cents.

There is no reason to use it with a tuner since the stock computer can command as much boost as go want. I am very curious about this.

I want to tune my truck but I can't afford to ditch the warranty right now. I have heard that for warranty claims the truck ecu has to be downloaded and the info sent to ford. So there is no getting around it if the computer has been flashed they are not gonna cover a catastrophic engine failure.
