If they reflash my truck and it changes the strategy do I just try the tune to see if it works or do I HAVE to ask Spartan before trying??

Obviously if the Strategy is the same it should work

thanks

When they reflashed mine it only changed the last two letters and I didn't have to anything. I asked spartan anyways and they said it was ok. I am sure someone will chime in that knows a heck of a lot more than me but I would say try it and if it starts you are good!!!! Might want to ask spartan to be sure though.

I assume you'd have to get new tunes, right? What would be the point of going into the dealership and updating if you're only going to put what you already have back on there? Or am I missing something?

You are missing something!! Spartan does include one set of replacement files after re flash. Many have had their trucks taken into the shop and Ford has re flashed their trucks. It's part of what they do. Hopefully you will be like me. When we took the wife's truck in for a problem they re flashed the truck, so I sent in the new strategy code and was told the tunes were still good.

I guess I still don't understand, then. Does this mean that when you put your Spartan tunes back on you were flashed back to your old strategy, or does it mean that the differences between the old and new strategies weren't so great that Spartan was able to "recycle" their changes and have them apply to the new strategy as well?

No sir. When his truck was re flashed, it changed the stock file. Probably to include the message on the screen that the truck was in regen and some other things. Really not too sure. He's not using his stock file, so it really doesn't matter anyway. Even tho his strategy code changed, his tunes will still work on his truck. Like you stated above, "or does it mean that the differences between the old and new strategies weren't so great that Spartan was able to "recycle" their changes and have them apply to the new strategy as well?" When they re flashed the wife's truck the only thing that changed on the strategy code was the two letters at the beginning, and the two at the end of the strategy. Believe me, I don't understand the changes at all, but as long as Nutty says he's good to use the tunes, they I'm sure Hollywood was ahppy to get his truck tuned again...
