Default Roush 3.5L EcoBoost - Perfomance Pac Tune - Question

Anyone have this upgrade? I'm in Canada and there aren't really any tuners near me (Ontario,Canada). This Roush tune is pretty cheap and dealer says I still get to keep extended warranty with tune.
Wanted to know:
- Did gas mileage go way down?
- Does truck shift smoothly still?
- Is there noticeable power gain? (not looking for miracles)
- Is the truck "Drive-able" on Street/Highway?
- Any over heating issue?
- Would you do it again?
- Pros. vs Cons.?
Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated.

That's because we are all wondering the same. The Roush tune sounds too good to be true.

I don't think it is. I think the gen2 3.5EB is corked up pretty good from factory. 2.5" exhaust to the muffler for 470ft-lbs of torque?

I think the tune leaves a lot of headroom....custom tune, intake, turbo-back exhaust.....there's good power to be had there just on pump gas.

I just think that the numbers that they are reporting are higher than what people are getting with a custom tune. Intakes on these trucks don't add much. A cat-back, yes.

I'm just wondering if it is a good tune, not so concerned about if the numbers are over-inflated.
This is the only tune in Canada I can find and keep my warranty.
Just wondering about downsides of this tune
- If your gas mileage goes down by 25% or If it shifts like crap then I don't then not worth it for me, but If it adds some power to the truck / makes it come alive and doesn't kill my gas mileage completely when on highway or shifts so hard my wife complains ever time she is in it then its a big win.
Otherwise no other option for tune on a brand new 2017 Platinum.

After looking it up it claims 111 whp and 126 torque.

That's 100% within the realm of reason considering the exhaust upgrade mostly. The intake isn't doing anything, but the exhaust replaces the 2.5" section with a resonator that is shrunk down with a 3" straight pipe.

Most people are making about 120 more whp going from untuned 87 to tuned on 93.

I could not believe how much power the performance pac level 2 was claiming to add. I sent an inquiry and see they have now updated their website to reflect a 18 hp and tq bump. So perhaps the claims were too good to be true after all. I'm not saying the engine is not capable of adding the 100+ increases, it just looks like it will not be accomplished with the Roush performance pacs.
