This tune is for those who already have a compatible SCT Device such as an X4 or BDX.
Expect nothing less than perfection from JDM Engineering for your Gen 2 Ford Raptor Custom Tune! First and foremost, we partnered with SCT to have parameters unlocked in the TCM (transmission control module) and PCM (power trian control module) not available in any other Ecoboost Raptor tune software on the market. This allows us to offer a drastically improved calibration allowing for OEM level refinement of your tune. After years in depth R&D Jim D'Amore has nailed the shift patterns of the Ford 10R80 Transmission, and paired with huge performance gains from the Ecoboost 3.5L V6.
What to expect: Drastically reduced turbo lag, crisp wide open throttle shifts, yet silky smooth manners driving around town so you won't spill your over priced drive thru coffee. We command all 10 gears shift strictly in order on throttle, no more skipped shifts, gear hunting, clunks, or slip bangs. As Far as power production, we expect around 425 horsepower and over 520 Pound feet of torque at the tire on a 93 octane tune. That is an average increase of 75-80 HP with over 100 HP gained through out the power curve, as well as 100+ TQ at the tires and over 150 TQ in the power curve! Baja Mode is made to be even more of a blast than Ford intended, with power to tear up whatever is underneath your tires on demand! 2WD baja mode is nothing short of a Pro 2WD experience with enough power to keep the truck sideways and bite on corner exit with ease!
Expect a solid 1-3 mile per gallon gain in fuel economy so you can expect more money in your wallet, and less shelled out at the pump. Job number 1 at JDM Engineering is quality and perfection of your vehicle regardless modifications, so rest assured power production is safe and reliable in even the toughest of conditions. The SCT X4 tuner we offer is simple to use loading our tune onto the vehicle and allows for in-depth useful data acquisition at your fingertips. After 20+ years in the Ford custom tuning business, expect nothing less than perfection for your Raptor from JDM Engineering. Looking to do more than custom tuning?

Don't just take our word for it, below is an excerpt of a review of our tune from a Ford Raptor Forum member:
"I have run the truck stock of course, but also on a 93 race tune from 5 star. My initial impression is that this is MUCH smoother. The stock trans tuning can be a bit harsh, especially since I have an early model 2017. The 5 star tune also was pretty harsh, harsher than stock. The JDM tune is very smooth through the gears, to the point where off throttle gear changes are nearly transparent. Also, the gear selection is terrific, the gear choice throughout the RPM range and varying loads is spot on. I live in a very hilly area with 45-55mph speed limits and it can be very annoying (especially in stock tune) for the truck to lug down too much before it has to downshift multiple gears to make it up a hill, it makes it feel like the truck is struggling. Proper shifting lets it kick down a gear quicker and go up hills with ease like it should.
The tune also feels like it makes great power. This part can be a bit tricky as peaky power and harsh shifting can feel faster, where real smooth linear power can be deceiving. I haven't done any logging, but by my analog boost gauge it looks like I'm peaking out around 22 psi on flat ground in normal mode. Low end is mellow and less nervous than the 5 star, but it still has all the punch up top. The trans tuning seems to keep the RPM's close to a better RPM for torque and it really shows when you stab the throttle. I played around in sport a little bit and the boost is very responsive, it doesn't take much pedal and the truck starts to pull very hard.
One surprise would be fuel mileage. It can be tough to judge accurately with varying terrain where I live, but I was seeing around 13.5-14.5 MPG before, and I'm seeing 16+, a solid 2 MPG gain so far!!! I really find this to be a very POLISHED tune, I believe the JDM guys really put in the work to come up with a winner. I can't imagine anyone would be disappointed with the results! I plan to keep this tune on and not revert back to the 5 star."
Here is an excerpt from a customer review off of Ford Raptor Forum:
"So, I think I need to chime in here. I too have ordered this fancy tune..
Annnnnddddd... I have had the tune installed for only 4 days now.
First, need to say that Nick here is the best. will answer all your questions, even the nerdy ones.. ( i get geeky and like to know details of what was actually changed. and every question I've had, Nick and team always have a great reason behind the changes/answers. )
For the tune itself:
Mine is still in a learning phase as I've only done local street driving this week, but.... so far... I have to say, it is well worth it. They do take a few days to get your tune done, but that's because, like Nick has already said, they do it case by case to make sure it works right for each truck. There are so many things going on at once in these machines, that literally one bit of code off can cause, well, you get the idea.
The boost comes so fast you almost think it's NA ! Really, it is that quick of a response now. Especially when you go to pass someone or get out of the way. Man, that power is just waiting for you with just a nudge on the pedal. If anyone is wondering if they would want a pedal commander... nope. it just confuse things.
For transmission, I did have to get used it not skipping few gears putzing around, but after only little bit, I realized how much more efficient it is and how it's better when you command any power. They really put some thought/time into this.
I have not been able to get to the dirt yet , but I can already imagine how much more fun it will be.
However, for giggles, on the street--I had 2wd, baja, just traction off, and wow..
Talk about instant power, and fact it keeps it spooled up and waiting for you to just get on it again, speechless, well not speechless, few choice words of excitement do come out LOL "
