Studs and egr delete Now slower... What gives

Ok just has studs and egr delete put in and the dealer decided to put a cold start update in the truck and now im geting 14 mpg and it just doesnt have the power like it used to have. I run erics extreme race and its just not there. The only other change is I took the stacks off and put 4" duals with a muffler. I cant believe the muffler has made it that slow what gives? was it the cold start update? Im planning on doing ficm tuning soon.

Porbably a silly question but did you return your programming to stock before taking it to the dealer?

did you check to see that you have the same strategy for the truck as the one that your tunes are written for?

I didnt think about that. Would the dealer reflash change my strategy?

most likely... some stratgies are compatible but for the most part with a new reflash you will need a new tune unless your tuner says it is compatible.

Exactly what Sam said, sounds like they did reflash your truck if you had the cold start update which should be the inductive heating I think.

If you don't mind, what is inductive heating? What does it do differently?

Well just checked the strategy and its the same. Im lost, my wife says its just not as loud cuz I dont have the stacks so it doesnt seem as fast. I dont know Im gonna order a new tune from eric and see if that changes.
