I haven't noticed much for mileage difference , but changing the transmission shift points has made a big difference in drivability. I haven't much time to play with it much, but well satisfied so far.

This programmer is great, I did quite a bit to research before purchasing one. Had a question which was answered right away. Received the programmer a few days later and it woke my 5.7 hemi up.

It really does work. Before I could see my gas move. Now I don't notice it as much. City has drastically improved. Hwy not tested yet but surely it will. Truck is slower but the performance side works too if need to switch to that setting. Can't wait to tow with it also. The fuel save setting makes shifts sooner which is obvious in saving fuel but really somehow it's not spraying as much.

It was easy to use I set it up for premium fuel car runs better and I gained about 1 mile to the gallon with mixed driving. I tried to install a jet mass air sensor but it turned on all the dash lights so I had to put the stock one back on then I saw where you can't piggyback with this programmer but I'm totally satisfied with the programmer.

Although the Cortex did do the things I wanted it for it also did things I didn't want it to do. For one, my truck doesn't show the gear selector on the dash anymore. I had to reset my average miles per gallon gauge because it would go from 18mpg all the way up to 38.3mpg. I don't mean to sound like an ... but when u have a new truck u want it to stay working in normal ways. Also when u spend $400 on a brand name product you expect it to work flawlessly. I've had 3 Flashpacks that have been fine

Delayed writing this review until I had a chance to run a few tanks of fuel through the truck and try the various tunes. 87 Octane tune is noticeable better than stock, better throttle response, slight increase in MPG. 91 Performance tune really woke the truck up and if you can keep your foot out of it, the MPG was better than stock. Mileage XS (gas saver) tune performance was comparable to stock but the MPG gain in my opinion was not enough to compensate for the loss in performance.

I purchased this for my new F150 and it really did give it the extra edge that I wanted. The midrange power is great. I also love the fact that you can purchase another program for the unit and do an additional vehicle. I plan to do that and use it on my 2011 Mustang GT for the spring. Great Product!

This programmer has worked great for me over the past few years. I wish I could have full functionality for all my trucks instead of pairing it with just one, but I can still use it as a code reader on my older F-150's from the 90's. I use it mostly to put my 2005 in fuel-saver and towing modes and they work great.
