What tune am I running?

Here's the issue. My brother picked up a very nice 2006 f250 6.0. Studded,EGR delete,4" exhaust, some sort of aftermarket intake.....so the truck has had somebody do a bit of work on it. The dealer told him it was tuned, and from some of the stuff that he has told me I believe it.
So what I'm nervous about is, what tune. How would you go about finding out what its got and were its set at. Heck he could be driving around just cranked up hot as hell and that could get a bit ugly..... And ya I don't know nuttin bout no tunnin....

No wah to tell that j know of except finding previous owner or the tuner used.
Only wag to get back to stock is take to ford dealer and have the latest flash put on it or I think bill at PHP can do a strat roll back

Just don't have him do it until he has a SCT with some tunes loaded on the device ready to go back in.

If he's got gauges and monitoring EGT's then why not just leave it on the tune until he gets a SCT loaded with some custom tunes?

Yup, leave it be if he can monitor things until he gets an SCT flash device and some custom tunes, then have it flashed back to stock and load a known tune.

One could use a SCT to read the PCM strategy, compare that to the OASIS to determine if it has ever been re-flashed. IF there is no OASIS info that shows a re-flash was done yet the SCT pulls a newer strategy it may be tuned.

I haven't done this myself but I could try it since I have my original virgin PCM in my toolbox. I have a second older SCT that I could use to read the PCM strategy.

Well Im kinda having the old problem of leading a horse to water but cant make him drink issue. He bought this truck with a after market warranty so he's not worried about blowin something up. Im just trying to get my facts lined up to help the guy when he's ready.

One of those eh? I'd walk away and leave him to his own ends. Otherwise you are in a no win situation.
