  1. Bad tune go boom

    F150 Ecoboost Guides and How-Tos
    No. Stock tune was gone Called SCT they sent update that was to recover it. Installed their recovered stock file and ECM fried. Truck now currently gets 11mpg on “stock tune” was at 16 before tuner ever touched it. The worst part of it is they told me it’s a known issue on 1st Gen 3.5s with...
  2. Bad tune go boom

    F150 Ecoboost Guides and How-Tos
    It was a bad device. First ever update from it. They even said so and said SCT known issue so then they sent a BDX. Rare but known that stock file lost on update. PCM had to be replaced. Ford couldn’t reflash it.

    F150 Ecoboost Problems
    Have you ran your trucks self diagnosing system yet? For some reason I cannot get a video to attach here. I have video of mine going into limp due to timing chain stretch if you want to compare it. All of my codes went to cylinders 1&2 which are passenger side front and middle AND drivers side...

  7. Bad tune go boom

    F150 Ecoboost Guides and How-Tos
    Mine fried allegedly due to firmware update. The tech support had one extremely good guy who had seen it before. They sent a new BDX tuner that is $100 less then the new one I just got to replace it. All in all a bad experience. Lost an entire day of overtime along with the repair bill and I...
  8. Bad tune go boom

    F150 Ecoboost Guides and How-Tos
    I would be hesitant to say he’s making it up. I had a tuner fry the ECM from SCT and lose the stock file and spent well over a grand trying to correct it. All of which customer support said wasn’t possible and got stuck with the bill to have ford come reflash it. Was not a good experience. Then...
