I think you did your update ok you might try to reload the stock tune and then download the 250 again

You need to read EGTRA temps not the bank 1 sensor that might be where your temp loss is comming from

Most of the time mick recomends that you download your truck to stock, then update the DD and then reload your tune, not sure why but thats what he says to do, hope this helps.
