"-The Unique Inboard Exhaust/Outboard Intake Architecture this industry first in a diesel engine reduces exhaust system volume which leads to improved spool tires and improved power delivery."

I am guessing they meant "times" instead of "tires"?

Thats awesome! According to a few all 500,000 of those are gonna break the rods. And the reverse flow heads are awesome, i dont know why its taken so long to use them for turbocharged engines. They make better sense to me

Until Ford came out with a TSB to get an updated ECU reflash that moved the torque band further up into the RPM range they were.

Not sure on the exact date, but right around a year or so ago ( give / take ). All the tuners pretty much did that too though, the problem with the rods was the low end torque loading up the bottom end to soon. They would either bend or break from there.

Essentially lugging the engine as if in too low of a gear but it was doing it 100% of the time.

Thanks Eric. I have a 13 and it still pulls super strong in the low end. Especially compared to my 6.0.

No worries, I believe the 13's came with this calibration from the get go.

Thats pretty standard procedure at dealerships, they will search your VIN and it will say the last calibration thats been done. If its older than the most current then they will reflash it to the current version.
