looking at adding a performance enhancement chip for my Ford V10-30 valve engine in Class A motorhome. Found a company in South Carolina that does this. The company name is "5 Star Tuning". Has anyone had experiences with this company.
There are many firms selling V10 chips, while I don't watch the market closely I've never heard of this firm.
If I was looking for advise on the V10 Chipping, I would go over to the Ford-Trucks Superduty forum and ask (it's the same engine) Forum
What are you after, economy? power?
2008 F350SD V10 with an 2012 Arctic Fox 29-5E When someone tells you to buy the same rig they own, listen, they might be right. When they tell you to buy a different rig then they own, really pay attention, they probably know something you don't.
Ford has squeezed about all it can from the 362 HP, 30 valve, V10. The only real improvement would be to get rid of that STUPID, extremely hot exhaust, Y junction near the engine. If its a Motorhome, u may be able to get rid of the Cat.Converter in states without emissions tests. If U do these 2 things and add a BIG breathing intake filter a chip probably won't do any better.

I have the 5 star tuning on my 2005 f53 20 valve. I also have the new y pipe that removes the restriction. I average 8.3 mpg towing a 3200 lb hhr. I recommend that you call Mike at 5 star tuning and talk to him. He is a straight shooter and very knowledgeable.I have the 87 performance tune. I donot have to use higher octane gas. Mike has many different tunes for rv's. You do not need to use the higher octane unless you want to. If you go to the ford heavy duty site you will read many accolades about 5 star tuning.
