Has anyone tried a 5 Star Tuning Cold Air Intakes on a Thor ACE?

Has anyone tried a 5 Star Tuning Cold Air Intakes on a Thor ACE?

I have done a ton of cold air intakes on other vehicles and adding a 5 star tuner and thinking of adding the intake as well....

Installing Front and Rear Sways and steering stabilizer tomorrow! DEF cant get any worse.


Thanks New member here, look forward to sharing tips and tricks.

Several on here have done the "5 Star" computer programing. I personally don't see the need to spend $500+ to have the transmission shift differently. Most are saying no difference in performance or fuel economy using it. And, no, I'm not an old fuddy-duddy... I have a 99 Dodge Dakota the is fully computer controlled using the SCT format that I drag race & show. That said, I made my own fresh air/larger air filter assembly on my E450 based class C with V-10 power. If you want any help/suggestions making a fresh air intake I'm here for questions.
p.s. I may be a bit slow responding the next few days. We are leaving for Cabo tomorrow.

Pat, No worries... I ended up purchasing the Power module, Ait intake set up and a 170 degree thermostat...

I will keep everyone posted as to the outcome, headache and increases. I have always had great performance upgrades on all my other vehicles with same upgrades, so fingers crossed.

Let us know your results. Im intrested in doing a 5 star mod for my Axis as well but the price has held me back.

I thought about doing a CAI but I dont want any additonal noise coming into the cockpit so I left it alone.

I have also done some CAI and computer mods to my other cars and was happy with the results. But the RV is different....Im not after speed or quickness....just better hill climbing and smarter shifting and comfort.
