I installed 3 years ago and wouldn't be without it. An amazing improvement in drivability! Highly recommend it!!!

Installed it in my Pursuit last Fall. Only have a couple hundred miles behind the wheel since then but even so I can say it's made a world of difference. My biggest gripe in the stock configuration was the tendency to drop directly into 3rd gear on even slight inclines while on the highway. Now it gracefully descends through the gears only as needed. On a recent 85 mile Interstate ride home from the dealer (where I was having warranty work performed) it only made it down to 3rd once, and that was on a prolonged hill climb with the cruise engaged.

The cabin noise and drivability improvements alone were worth the price of admission to me.

Try here. Its on sale.
Custom Dynomemeter Chassis Tuning Products and Services - 5 Star Tuning

Also available from etrailer.com I think.

FYI, What coach you have makes no difference. Its all about
what chassis you have. You will need lots of info for them to
make a custom tune for you. Don't be afraid to ask questions so you
are sure you get the best one for you.

Does it void the warranty?

Installed one over a year ago, and would not go without it. The shifting is much smoother and less down shifting. No difference in fuel mileage.

It can void the engine/trans portion of your warranty however there is a consumer protection law that requires the manufacturer to show a connection between the mod and the failure. That being said, the dealership you go to for warranty repair makes a difference.

I talked to 5 Star yesterday and found that things have changed. You no longer need a custom program. The one you get works on MY up to 2015 (chassis not coach) You dont even need the PCM code anymore. Its plug and play!
