Strategy Question

Ok took my truck to the dealer and they reflashed me with out knowing. I noticed my truck sounded wierd at cold start up. you can hear the turbo cycling up and down. it just didnt sound right. i checked the code and its VXCF9H7 is this the newest flash and is it suposed to be better than what i used to have VXCF4HJ. i cant run my sct tunes i dont think now. havent tried but just wanted to see what the dealio was.

I just got the same (new) flash after the dealer put a new FICM in it. At cold idle it cycles the turbo, goes from whistle to no whistle. Once warm it only does once in a while (at stop lights, etc)

My last flash was a CF4 or something like that. I didn't have a turbo sweep with it. I'm glad there is such a feature as this now.

When did this flash came out? I have a flash from August, but mine doesn't cycle like you are talking about. I don't know my strategy code.

When i had the stock turbo on my truck it would cycle the vains. this was like a couple years ago when i last had my truck flashed for the inductive heating flash. Even the older flashes would cycle the vains to keep them from sticking.

I just know that my truck never did that with the old flash. And yes, the sound is un-nerving at first. I really didn't know what it was doing, til I read a post which had all the key points of the new flash. At least now I know what's going on. Usually does it when I first start the truck up, then every once in a while when I'm at a stop light.
