Mustangs and F-150's are nothing alike. There are canned tunes out there via hypertech, superchips, and bullydog I think but If you want custom it will be done via the SCT X3 *Ithink* Check out PHP, Troyer, and VMP.

Every vehicle is different even within the same model year. SCT is what I use but there are other options out there.

I know some have had them dyoned, but for me it was better driveability. The drive by wire from factory is just so lazy and the tunes really help. I def. noticed a difference but didn't have 1000 miles on mine before it had a tune.

so far heard SCT is what people are using i'm not looking for custom (dont need that much) i'm leaning towards the SCT SF3 but i'm shopping around and none say anything about '09+ f-150's
