I bought a '16 Ford Explorer Sport in July of 2015. I loved the power of the 3.5l EcoBoost and the aggressive grill.
It looks sexy from the front. A little bulbous and weird in the back, but whatever. I wanted an SUV that could carry a lot of equipment, and yet haul ass when I wanted it to.
I've always been pleased with the car's performance, but thought there might be more to gain by modifying the exhaust system or something.

By chance, I happened to read something about the Diablosport inTune. I thought the 60hp boost claims were probably exaggerated, but I liked the idea of an invisible upgrade.
I bit the bullet and bought the I2020 intune.

Driving it around the block after the flash was, frankly, less than impressive. It didn't really seem that different. I wondered if the programming even took at all. The next day on my short drive to work seemed a bit more interesting though. I was texting a buddy of mine who has experience with this stuff, and he said the ECU needs some time on the road to re-learn itself.
On the drive home I started noticing that the car seemed spunky, like a horse who knows he's headed back to the stables after a long ride.

The that evening I took it onto the freeway to band practice, and it was just incredible. The inTune really makes Ford's EcoBoost engine come alive! I am a VERY satisfied customer.
Diablosport FTW!

How long have you had this, and have you had any issues?

Does the tune help with the bottom end response? Like most turbo engined cars there's a bit of a lag when you hit the pedal till it spools up good and begins to respond

What's the one with the smaller display unit cost these days?
When I was looking at mine, the display size was the only major difference in features. And it was like double the price.
For me, it wasn't worth the cost. YMMV
