Thanks
Success
I was able to edit the abs info from 649 to 629 revs per mile to match my tire size.
Thanks again to akcooper9 for sharing this info.
Very easy to edit and save the change.

JustinOOO9 I may look into Bluetooth. I don't remember if my laptop has it or not it was bought in 2015 so by laptop standards its VERY OLD lol... I mostly got it because It was free and I already have torq pro with the ELM 327 adapter but torqpro doesn't work great on my truck. It kills it a lot when making changes and recording stuff. So hoping the forescan is friendlier even if the laptop is little bigger than the tablet.

appreciate it. Looking forward to not using my phone calc to multiple the odom reading before mpg haha.

Didn't know it could acess the pcm functions like the newer powerstrokes. I would love to update my speedo/odometer to not have to multiply my odom every fill up lol.

would something like this work? I rread you need a can bus thing for the 6.7l too>?

FYI the Foseal Car WiFi obd2 adapter worked well for me. No wires needed.
And yes I believe that adapter will work.
