I visited the Speed shop last week, found that it was the 5-Star tune causing the problem.
We returned the truck to stock and retuned. Now i am getting 504lbft of torque and 417hp at the wheels.

Turns out i should have returned the truck to the stock tune first, instead of trying to use the 5-Star one already on there. now i know for next time.

Very cool.  A learning moment that turns out positive.  :thumb:
2007 Ford Edge SEL, Powerstop F/R Brake Kit, TXT LED 6000K Lo & Hi Beams, W16W LED Reverse Bulbs, 3BSpec 2.5w Map Lights, 5W Cree rear dome lights, 5W Cree cargo light, DTBL LED Taillights

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!
