go get the newest reflash. With it the injectors make no noise....it uses what they call inductive heat stratagy to prevent cold weather problems....and the newest update was about 90% more effective than the one you have at keeping cold start problems from happening

I have the new update and they also replaced the EGR valve. My truck (F350) runs better that it did new!! Way more power, I would say the update done this not the EGR valve. But I may be wrong.

Others have said that miliage was down with the update. On the lie-o-meter reset at say 55 and a steady cruise, mine is about the same as before. Now on paper I really cant say because of winter and warm up idling.
