ford updatas

Me and 2 of my buddys just had our trucks updata at for and we all lost power and got more turbo lag. Anyone else have this problem?
Thanks for any help.

Re: ford updatas

The 03 should be a vcxb9 that is the latest flash for 03-early 04 trucks. The 06 should have the latest grestest or so they say.

Re: ford updatas

Yup the new FICM flash is great for cold starts not so great for power

Fixed it for ya.

Mine has a brand new FICM, and you already know my problems. I contacted Eric, he said that cranking is only 10% in the PCM tune, but 90% in the FICM. I've already told him I wanna be first on the list for his remote FICM tuning, which will be unveiled soon.

Kem performance, power hungry performance and innovative diesel all can tune your ficm to gain back what the new flashes have screwed up. With either a sct or a gryphoon you can roll back to a earlier stock flash as well.
