Ecm/pcm replacement

Hi guys I just bought another 06 F-250 crew cab. After driving it for a couple days I’m starting to get the impression that my truck has a tuner married to it. But I went to Ford asked for a re-flash they told me it will cost $400. But I was looking around I found a reman ecm/pcm for under $200 with the updated software they claim it’s plug and play. If I go that route would that return my truck back to stock completely ?

Thanks I’m advance,

Doombugie

Itís out of a same year truck 06. They just told me to give them my vin # so that they can program it. And said if my key is microchipped then I would need to take it to a dealer to have it reprogrammed. Which I think my truck is not since it starts with the valet key.

Any pre 07 Super Duty truck has no chip in the key so you're fine there. What's the purpose of running a stock ECU? Is there something wrong with the tune that is on it?

Iím not all 100% sure when itís fueling it bucks like a mule then smooths out already replaced the fuel filters and checked the fuel pressure which is reading 60 psi idle about 57 - 58 psi at wot pretty sure fuel delivery is fine. Iím now suspecting itís the tune on the truck but the tuner did not come with the truck when I bought it.

That is a good price. It should work fine.

Just be aware that YELP reviews aren't real favorable for the company:
