My truck does this also with my Evolution on it. I have a friend with a 2000 f350 and his has the same code with his Evolution on it. Truck runs fine with that code, and no SES light.

The KAM is your learning computer. If you recently programmed the computer with your programmers or unhooked your batteries for a while you KAM will erase and it has to learn how you drive all over again. Just give it time and your computer will relearn. Don't worry it is normal. My superchips does that too and i notice the shift points change until about two weeks then they are good to go. Just watch it for a while and then put the programmer back on it to read the codes. If you have no other codes the you will get a P1111 code which is ford's all clear. Thats how it is on my 97 it might be a different all clear for 99+

It depends. For me it takes about two weeks because i make a bunch of short trips. It takes no time to learn the WOT portion. But for you there is really no telling it all depends on how often you drive it and whether they are long or short drives, how you drive it, hard on it or a slow poke. Its really hard to give you an exact time length but have no fear that code will soon go away, Unless you have other problems that need to be addressed. If you have no other codes then just give it time, but if you have other codes then they need to be addressed. Can I ask what you were doing before the code popped cause i might be able to tell you if you have other problems or not
