FSA/Recall - ECM Reprogramming

Is it just me or did this new ECM flash make the truck much quicker? I feel like I have lots more power now.

You should find another explain the situation and ask them to verify.

I agree! Go to another dealer. Get it double checked.
I’m still trying to find a dealer I trust to do the EGR recall. My local dealer has been giving me nothing but empty stories.

I just noticed the cig power outlet doesnt stay on 24x7 anymore. My radar was off when I just went out to the truck. Before the flash it would never go off.

I plan to see another dealer, surely their laptop can determine what software edition is without much trouble.

Wreedsvt- My truck also seems to be a little snappier after the reflash. I am also seeing mpg figures into the over 23 range. Up from the 20.5 area. That is 75 mph on freeway and 60 mph on two-lanes. 3.55's, 5.5 bed, towing mirrors, tonneau not on.

Yes I just drove it 30 miles to my office with no cars on the road(early AM Sunday), and it is much more peppy!

I noticed a bit mor pep after the reprogram as well. I thought I might have been imagining things. Would be nice to know what was actually ďreprogrammedĒ.
