pcm updates with tuner and dpf delete???

Today I got a letter in the mail from Ford that I haven't come in for the new (PCM) updates which helped improve the water-in-fuel reduced power mode, engine coolant temp monitoring, over full engine oil level and proper circulation within the engine oil cooler.
With my truck having the dpf delete can or will they do this update and do I really need it at all. Hoping someone has done this or knows something about these updates. Any help would b great........ Thanks Chris

You will need to revert to stock prior to taking it in.

Depending on your tuner, it may use the Ford safety parameters or it may wipe them out when the tune is applied. You'll need to ask the manufacturer of the tuner. Other thing to make sure of is that your tuner has the strategy for this update already in place, otherwise you may not be able to reflash your tune. The new flash has been out a while now and most of them already have the updated strategy, but still should check.

I'm pretty sure H&S has the updated strategy, have you updated from their website recently? If so, you probably already have the updated tunes.

H&S tunes completely replace your PCM's programming. You do not need to get the Ford recall unless you are un-deleting and then leaving the truck stock.
I am not sure if H&S has incorporated the new sensor values from the Ford update. The revision updates do not indicate so.

H&S and Spartan both work with the new Ford flash, but when programming, they revert back to an older stategy. They are not using the new Ford monitoring in their programming as of now, but it is still good to get the flash done that way if you were to have an injector stick, etc, you did already have the flash done. I know Eric @ Innovative incorporates the new monitoring in his tuning on the SCT which is a big plus

muntu, yep. Failure to get it done before the date on the sheet can result in future warranty work being denied.

dogrider, none of the tuners will do the same as the Ford flash. There are just too many parameters they would have to comply with and you wouldn't get the performance you currently have. In order to get that performance, they would have to overide/remove those parameters.
