Dom is 100% correct the 5X is not designed to be the tuner you take to the track. It was designed for day to day driving for someone that wants good power, good shifting, and a to wake up their truck. It does exactly that. I tested one for Dennis and Shiela back about 6 months ago. I really liked it. The boost sounds low. Dennis has it set up to max out at 27. 22 sounds like you had something going on. I asked Dennis, and he said that 27 was the best he found for boost. Above 27 he lost power, below he lost power. Remember, it was not designed to be the mega power adder that the SCT is. I currently am running it on my dads truck, and he freakin loves it. He doesn't want the power that I have. He still thinks he can take me, and I just don't have the heart to go out and give him a bad spankin!
THe 5X is great for what it was designed to do, and it shifts better than most of the products I have tried, and I have tried dang near all of them on my truck at one time or another. Dennnis can make big power, trust me on this!
If your interested give them a call. They are site sponsors, and all around great people.
