It's the same as if you had the inductive heating strategy and tried to get the buzz flash installed. The Ford system can't go backwards in regards to updating the strategy.
Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. You just don't hear anybody talking about this, so my information may not be correct.
No thats not correct.....the whole mining truck thing was something that I asked you guys about 3 months ago.....no one including Ford (different dealerships and fleet managers) can tell me if there is such a thing as the "mining truck", but I have heard they are out there. To put it shortly, instead of going in and trying to modify sensors and possibly messing something up he goes and just turns off regen at the "main breaker".....if that makes sense.......so in the end the motor thinks its on a dyno and not in a truck to worry about emission issues.....a lot of the companies are having a hard time with this truck.....there is a new flash out there which is throwing everyone for a loop....I mean the truck has almost been out for a year and there is still nothing from K&N, Banks, AEM the reason being that they are all having the same difficulty as the companies that have stuff out for are having......and that is regen......regen is simply just too sensitive and too much of a pain to try to get aftermarket things to work on the truck without setting off the CEL.......simply put if you want to mod your truck without any headaches, then you need to get of the DPF and regen.....but there goes your warranty
