It's a couple years old. You should have no reason to update, the later flashes are for cold start issues mostly.

So what exactly are these 'hidden' codes in the strategies? Do several strategies use the same code?

There a few ways to reference the calibration flashed into the processor:

1-The hex code (VXAP1N3.hex) - the first five digits of the hex code is the strategy (VXAP1) with the last two for the actual file (N3).

2-The filename (8C3A-14C204-AA) - used in newer vehicles such as the 6.4L

3-The part number (3U7A-12A650-FUG)- part number for both the hardware flashed with the calibration

4-The box code, tear tag, or catchword four digit code (UTU6)

5-The Calibration number (3F710N0B15)- this is what is read by the IDS

No but several calibration files can have the same strategy.

Nutty, I've been trying to get a list of '03 flashes and what each one changed. Would you have this information available? I'm just trying to decide whether to get the latest update or keep my VXAP1. I know there are EGR and Turbo cycling improvements, any shifting improvements?

Any shifting improvements? Maybe on my truck......Before, it would seem that I would get at least 1 shift flair when I would drive the truck. Now, I've only gotten maybe 2 of them in the last 2-3 weeks. Really hadn't thought about it til I read your post, but yeah, its helped mine. I'm running stock program now, but tuned, I never got any.
