6.4 CPU QUESTION

I WAS TALKING TO A FORD DEALER TECH, AND HE SAID THE SMARTEST THING TO DO , IF YOU WANTED TO CHIP THE 6.4 IS BUY ANOTHER CPU, AND PUT IT IN, THAT WAY IF IT DID BREAK DOWN, YOU COULD PUT THE ORIGINAL CPU BACK , BECAUSE IT WOULD NOT HAVE THE INFO THAT YOU HAD A CHIP IN IT? ANYBODY HERE OF THIS BEFORE

That is a good idea........but any idea what that would cost? I mean if the cat and DPF are over 2500 bucks I could only imagine

IT IS SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS, BUT THE FORD GUY THAT I CALLED SAID THAT IT IS NOT THAT EASY, BECAUSE THAY HAVE TO DO A INHAIL / EXHAIL AS HE CALLED IT, IT IS WHERE THEY COPY THE OLD INFO FROM THE EXISTING PCM, AND PUT IT ON THE NEW ONE, OTHERWISE THE TRUCK WILL NOT RUN, SO I DON'T THINK IT WOULD WORK ANYWAYS

They shouldn't have to do an inhale/exhale. Just tell them it was in a wreck and the PCM was smashed. They should be able to order one with the programming on it or program with a WDS or whatever they use now

Exactly....I mean seriously is Ford really going to expect us to believe that every truck runs different?

Well if it's like the Mustangs then the PATS (passive anti theft system) has to be programmed in the computer otherwise it will not recongize the key and will not start.

Doesn't the PCM record the Trip and Odo too?

From what I've HEARD, the "You chipped your truck" tell-tell is actually a line of code that records something saying the PCM was reset in the last 72 operating hours. So, in theory, you would still get hit at the dealer when you take it in and the ODO is off, and the 'reset' code is stored.

Just a little FYI...though I COULD be wrong.

WHEN I CALLED FOR A PRICE ON THE PCM, THEY GAVE ME A LOT OF CRAP, SAYING IT SHOULD BE COVER UNDER WARENTY, THE ONLY WAY I COULD GET A PRICE WAS TO TELL HIM I HAD 97,000 MILES ON THE TRUCK, THEN HE FINALLY GAVE ME A PRICE
