    Well I just drove a f-150 with a 3v 5.4. It has had its comptuer reflashed with i think the Edge 2 or similar prodect. WOW what a difference. Owning a stock 5.4 I have always been extrememly disapointed with its performance, lots of torque but no HP.
    This truck seemed like a completely different animal. Engine felt much more like a chev 5.3, and the tranny downshifts much more quickly and sharper.
    This is how they should have came from the factory. The 5.4's are dogs they just need to be waken up. The owner claims almost no difference in mileage but he is running the 87 octane program.

    Anyone else there have experience with chipping their 5.4??

    A buddy of mine has a Jeep Wranger Unlimited that he put the Edge program on, couldn't tell much difference except his checkbook was lighter. The programmers work much better on diesels!

    You can't compare different engine's. The Ford 5.4 comes with a very soft tune from the factory which is why is responds so well to programmers.
