PCM update 11B23??

Well I just ripped the DPF/DOC off today and as it hit the ground the mail arrived with a letter from FoMoCo. It states there is an "update to the PCM to give it improved fault detection capabilities. This will allow the vehicle to quickly detect and react to issues before significant damage occurs. Some examples included water-in-fuel reduced power mode......"

Anyway, has anyone had this update yet?? I only have 9700 miles on my 250 and I still have 18 months of factory warranty.

My trucks exhaust and tune are stock, I did the update today. It took half the day though due to them having server issues so I left the vehicle with them. There were about 7 of us there this morning, including 2011's getting there update or "recall" as the paperwork said.

If you get the update your tuner may not work. The last I heard was that the SCT will not work with the newest update, but they are working on getting everything fixed. I haven't heard about other tuners yet.

I also read on the spartan forum that it wouldnt work cause the strategy changes but youd just have to send them the new info and they would fix it up for ya (free)....
