Complete Bully Dog BDX Tuner and Custom Tune Package

5-Star's custom tuning provides your 2017-2018 Raptor's HO 3.5L EcoBoost V6 with some of the best bang-for-your-buck power gains on the market in a simple package that can have your truck churning out massive levels of power and improve its shifting. 5-Star's custom tuning adjusts key parameters and tables within your Raptor's engine computer so that it squeezes out impressive levels of horsepower and torque without the need for any "hard" bolt-on performance parts. TThe increased power output is combined with altered transmission tuning that's carefully designed to fill in some of the gaps in the 2017-2018 Raptor's own driving modes while giving you and your Raptor more across-the-board power and torque. You get five 5-Star Custom Tunes, as well as Bully Dog's canned performance tunes on your BDX device.


Select Tunes by Octane and Performance

5-Star's tunes turn up your 2017-2018 3.5L EcoBoost Raptor's power by adjusting its fuel curves, ignition timing, fan control, and a ton of other variables so that your truck makes huge amounts of horsepower and torque. 5-Star's custom tuning even takes into account tire size, drivetrain, and axle ratio so that your F150 operates perfectly no matter your modifications. 5-Star includes a Street Driver Tune for 85 to 89 octane fuel, a Street Performance Tune for 85 to 89 octane fuel, a Street Driver Tune for 90-93 octane fuel, a Street Performance Tune for 90-93 octane fuel, and a Stock Driver tune for all octanes that removes the factory digital limiters without a power increase. The more general tuning scheme preserves all your Raptor's adjustable powertrain modes, keeping your Raptor capable of just about anything while adding horsepower and torque.
