Yea it is based on when your truck was built or when the last time you took it to a dealership. The dealerships will update your strategy without asking or telling you.Thanks.
Adding to that, everybody always talks 'what strategy are you running'. Are these all different based on when the truck was built, and when the truck was updated in the Ford shop (or through using custom tunes?)
If the tuner used that strategy to base your tine off of, then yes that strategy will show up on your truck. If they used a different base strategy then whatever they used will show up. When you return it back to stock the SCT will put your stock strategy back one no matter which strategy is used for tunes.OK, I don't have a tune.
My current "strategy" is vxbc9nb
Now, that is a Ford "Strategy". Created by Ford. Now, from my understanding, when a person with a tuner puts into their truck, let's say, SRL+ from whom ever, that Code vxbc9nb will not appear in their truck. A code from the SRL+ will. And most keep on file the, stock, vxbc9nb to go back to when needed.
Am I under standing that right? Or have I misunderstood that.
I never said that a certain strategy is the best. I said that the earlier ones are `considered' the best.Everyone knocks the latest strategy but the truth is, when you have a stock truck (like it was designed to work from the factory) it is going to be the best calibration for reliability. If it was designed to keep warranty numbers down, then less warranty repairs mean better reliability.
It's not as simple as reducing power to reduce headgasket failures. Did you ever consider these things had too much power from the factory? The VT365 doesn't run near the power. The calibrations are all from Ford.
