I had my ECM flashed at the Ford dealership in 2008 or 2009 in order to get the inductive heating strategy try to help my cold start issues. It hasn't been flashed since. From what I understand, the Atlas 40 tune changes the way the inductive heating works causing the injectors to heat in sequence instead of all at the same time to decreased the power drain and the strain on the FICM.
So, is this sound normal? Should I have the ECM flashed? I plan to do an EGR delete soon and don't want to have to buy a tuner, so I'd rather not get the flash that sets the check engine light.
