Looks like you need to datalog and get a revision for that 5 star, maybe a couple. It'll do just as good and better as the ssi. 5 star just doesn't like giving all the sauce right off the bat, they want to make sure everything is looking good first.

i had the tune for months felt a tad bit faster than stock. If you throw a 5 star tuned truck against an SSI tuned truck ssi will get it all day long.

Absolutely not true.
Anyways yeah, do some datalogging and send to 5 star for revisions.

Except if you look outside of the SSI FB nuthugger page there’s plenty of proof. They’ve gotten better but their early days had issues. What’s your truck anyway?

18 screw 5.0 hey you're entitled to your own opinion even if it's terribly wrong. I've yet to see a fast 5.0 tuned by 5 star that doesn't have an intake manifold. My truck is Intake tune exhaust faster than a 5 star truck that needs a boss manifold to break into the 13's.

I did my research on SSI and quickly found my answer. Any prudent person would be well-advised to do the same. I prefer to leave a little on the table to maintain long term reliability.

It's amazing how SSI threads pop up a couple times a year, always with almost the exact same wording, and then quickly die due to overwhelming negative feedback. Kinda makes you wonder if it's SSI Minions making the posts.
