SCT is working overtime.

I know people have been waiting for tunes from their dealers. And some of you have gotten calibration updates lately and the trucks just haven't been the same. SCT has an 03,04,05, and an 06 truck that they are going back through the pcms from top to bottom to improve the software for us dealers. Each time they update my PCM database is updated I get to download 914 code updates. And my advantage software has changed from version 3.0 build 3560 to version 3.1 build 2 and then 3 and then 4 and then 5 and now 6. This has been over the past 4 days. So I've had 3 or 4 database updates and a whole bunch of tuning software changes.

:agreed: It's a job in itself keeping up with all of the reflashes and changes from Ford.

Kermit,

Would this result in a delay if we needed a new tune?

Was this a simple reflash ,or a complete redesign of the way the truck computer runs, and what sensors tell it how to operate, including the complete removal of some sensors? : How is the egr and tranny doing with that strap on? :

Working fine for me....

Haven't had to send the box back for one retune. : Truck has been flashed and everything. Trans shifts fine and everything.... I'll be bringing it to the 6.0 Shootout in DFW too.... Might even drag the 5th wheel down there if Diesel ain't $5.00 a gallon. 3200 mile round trip = lots of diesel fuel when towing a barn.

They are making a few tweaks to get some extra power from the trucks. They weren't satisfied with just walking away from a module. They wanna run away and be back at the starting line before something that has a knob on it gets to the end of the track.
