Question Ecoboost Tunes

Yes, yes, another thread about tunes. I've been lurking for a while, but recently got caught up with work and kind of fell off. I'm wondering - who has the best all-around tune these days, for decent power, driveability, and reliability?

I know this is a highly opinionated subject; I'm just looking for the most up-to-date 'reviews'.

I'm currently running an SSI tune (SSi2 w/ TA Adj, not sure if that's the newest one), and have a set from MPT (v12, also not sure if that's the newest). I've been seeing great reviews about LET recently, though, and was wondering who the general populace considers the "best" now. How about it?

The current SSI tunes are GEN2 with the same designations as before. The new SSI4TS2GEN2 is so smooth and well mannered on take-off I don't even see me using the SSI2 anymore. Power is up as well.

5* was what I chose and should be here any day now.
I will be using the 87 perf / tow tune the most.
5* is included in packages that have a warranty you can purchase if Ford ever rejected do to the tune.
They are confident in it...

5 star perf/tow tunes for over 15k now. I use the 87tune the most since 93 is 40cents higher around here. Throttle response and the transmission recalibration are excellent and I can beat the 8 speed Hemi and the new 6.2 Chevy pretty easily. I love this truck!!! Can't wait for the 2015!

The new ones feel more like a cable driven throttle than a drive by wire setup.

Seems like you already have an SCT, not sure if you are willing to try a new device, but after a year's worth of R&D Diablosport just came out with support for the ecoboost. They are making 90HP/90TQ on their 93octane tune that is loaded in the device. It also comes with 4 other tunes including a tow tune and mileage booster tune. Driveability from those who have tried it,including us, is awesome.

For SCT MPT or 5* are hard to beat.

Asking others which is best is probably not going to help. You will get nothing more than personal preference (as well as apparently a pitch from a vendor who wants to sell a canned tune as a competitor to custom tunes)...

As you have a couple of tunes from a couple of tuners all ready, why not get the latest from each, drive them per your individual driving style and choose which one you like best.

If you do want reviews, I suggest heading to the various vendor sites as those will have in-depth reviews with drive/performance/safety data to substantiate claims.
