Tuner help (SCT)

hi guys

i have an 02 ford psd 7.3 with the banks big hoss kit installed. wehad the truck serviced and they reflased the ecu making the chip no longer work. after sending the ecu and the chip back to banks 3 times i finally give up. I also herd SCT is the way to go anyways....

so i have a few questions for you guys:

does it matter what flash code is in the ecu to use the SCT tuner? Think mine is VDH4
i have the banks "trans command" installed. Can i keep that in when i get my SCT tuner?

thanks for the help in advanced

The SCT downloader is a 4 bank unit. You do not have to worry about the code being different when it's 4 bank. All it has to be is the same DPC-### family.

Another option is the Edge Evolution gameboy style that Jody can upgrade to 4 bank. So as long as the code is in the same DPC-### family then all is good. :Thumbup:

Did you receive paper work when you got done?

Look on the paper to see if it says anything about the reflash code, then PM me the info. I can tell you then what the flash is. It will be a long number that will be like 7 or more characters long. Use any code reader and it will give the calibration code. We can decypher it. Do you know anyone that has a code reader?

With the SCT it will not matter what the new flash is. That only applies to the the Banks chip.

We'll all help you get this figured out.

If you choose an SCT (with or w/o Custom tunes) and depending where you get it from, a custom tuner like us, can keep your tunes up-to-date whenever your PCM gets flashed. In your case, The dealer may have changed your base code which may be causing the banks not to work as Diane mentioned above.

Feel free to call if you have questions.
