I remember reading somewhere, but now can't find the information, that Ford is going to be releasing a tune for the 6.4 to help with better mileage. Can anyone confirm this for me. I know that I read it and just can't find the thread anymore. Thanks.

I was talking to some Int. Harv. engeniers from the Indianapolis plant yesterday and they said ford does have a new download for the 6.4 They said the dealers should have the new program. My truck is a job 1 and has not had any changes. I'm going to call the dealership next week.

Anybody know if this tune will have any effect on the ability to tune the truck with a KEM/Spartan or SCT tuner? I assume it will give the truck a new stratagy and therefore will require a new tune. I don't want to update if ford has done something to block out tuners or maybe make turning off the regen different.

All of this is news to me. My truck is going in for a few minor service items next Monday. Is there anything I should tell them to check or ask that they do? Computer updated, etc? Or is this just something they'd do anyway?

I called my local Dealership (Reliance Ford in La Porte, Tx.) and he had no idea what I was talking about or he was lying so he would not have another freebie to deal with. If any of you guys have the update number, please post it or if you know what the update is supposed to benefit.

Thanks,
Joey

My dealership reprogramed my transmission shifts saying that the update would give me better economy. I lost 1.5-2.0 MPG's. That was about 2 months ago. Is this going to be another ordeal like that?
