Yep, sure did. I pulled the EGR which was pretty dirty and just bought a new one and popped it in and cleared the codes and it's been fine since.. EGR Delete and coolant filter are next on the list.
Also a few weeks ago I threw on a triple pillar gauge pod with some Autometer factory match boost, EGT and trans gauges along with a mbrp 4" turbo back straight pipe exhaust. I then decided to buy the Extreme street tune from Innovative to hold me over until I could contact SCT about adding the F250 to my contract so I could tune it. I had to borrow the X3 from my Lightning to load a tune temporarily until I get a tuner solely for the F250. It really woke up the truck and I am really impressived to say the least.
As for the SCT Advantage Software, I know absolutely nothing about tuning Diesels so I wanted to find someone who would give me atleast write me a base tune in the .MTF format which allows me to see all the values and make changes to the tune unlike the .cef format that they normally send that only allows you to load it. I finally found a tuner willing to give me some of his custom tunes in.mtf format so long as I buy the tuner through him. I've got to buy one anyway since so that works perfect. Plan on buying the Livewire TS 5015 through him tomorrow. For PRP owners, It's only $100 dollars to SCT per additional vehicle to tune as long as said vehicle is in your name. If it's someone elses vehicle and you want to tune it, it's $300.
I just cant believe there is so little of information out there in regards to people tuning their own diesels. It's almost as if the guys who do write tunes and know best practices and what does and does not work with diesels are very tight lipped about it.. I can understand their reason but I still thought I'd find more info than I have so far.
