Think I've got a big problem, need some imput..

Ok, so I had an xcal3 on my truck and I had it on the canned "tow" setting while I was moving and towing a huge trailer, something fell on the programmer and cracked the screen, so I couldn't get it off.. Found an xcal2 on craigslist for $120 shipped so I picked it up. Plugged it in to just see if I could set the truck back to stock wtih that other programmer and before I did, I read the stragety, same as it's always been, I select return to stock on the xcal2, and it returned it to stock so it said, and then the stragety code changed (weird?).

I drive it, and the exhaust sounds very different, alot deeper now, no smoke, and its kinda slow so I'm thinking sure it returned it to stock with the guy I got the xcal2 from's stock tune and stragety. Then i notice he has gogo diesel custom tunes, so I select street just to see, and it loads it, start the truck (actually started quicker than normal) and seemed fine. I drive it, and it HAULS ***, and has tonssss of black smoke (just like my old xcal3 did when I ran DJ's looney tune on it), but the exhaust sounds even deeper, and more like a 7.3 now.

Just wondering if now there's the xcal3's canned "tow" tune on it and the gogo diesel "street" tune from the other guys truck, or if it gave me his stragety code and using his tunes are safe, or if I should just return to stock, have the truck reflashed, and get some new tunes for my new stragety code??


Sorry for the book, but I'm just not in a position right now to screw something up now that the warrenty has ran out.

Return it to stock and upload your tunes on to it. See how it runs.

If it doesnt seem right call SCT and have them send you a stock file

But why would the stragety change? The whole sound of the truck has changed since going to the xcal2 from my xcal3.. I'm thinking about just returning it to stock, and having my mother in law take it to work (ford dealer) with her in the morning and have them reflash it to get everything off of it.

Reflashing it will do that, right?
