... When the next engine died, it was decided to install the used (36 kmil) 16 MY engine. After installation, I had a problem with the PCM
software and contacted my local dealer for a solution. The truck remained with the dealer for 20 days and was returned unchanged. The dealerís response was that they canít help me. I was surprised I asked a Ford dealer to reprogram a Ford car with Ford software to use a Ford engine. The Internet offered to buy a device for tuning to solve my problem. But no one guaranteed the passage of a smog check in California. It was also unclear from the description how exactly these devices changed the software. I donít like the simple correction of the DTC
mask, I do not need to increase the power, everything is very opaque but costs a lot of money.
I had to deal with this problem myself. The decision took a week and I got PCM
with software for 14MY body and 16MY engine. This software makes full use of the capabilities of the modified engine and the truck passed the California smog check
. No need
to buy tuning devices. If anyone needs a solution to a similar problem, you can ask me at PM.
Now I want to find a similar solution for installing a 15MY turbo on an 11-14MY engine, but I do not have a truck with such a need. So if you are looking for this I offer cooperation.....
We can discuss in PM
