SCT BDX Programmer

Just ordered this. Seller said it has DPF on and off programming. Going to run DPF ON at first.

That eBay link states "This part is not compatible with 2018 Ford F-150 King Ranch Crew Cab Pickup 4-Door 3.0L 2993CC 183Cu. In. V6 DIESEL DOHC Turbocharged."?

I'm assuming that the Compatibility lookup is in error as it sounds like @wreedsvt talked directly with the seller.

I am having error issues with my bdx after the last transmission changes. Throws an error out and says it can't find the vehicle info. It's in a que to be fixed but I haven't checked back in a while. I was working very nicely before the recall

You have the diesel?

Did you leave it in when you took your truck in? They probably reflashed the ECM and now your BDX is bricked. You will need to send to SCT/dealer for them to reset it. When Ford flashes the ECM with IDS, you must always remove the tune/programmer, and reinstall afterwards.

Hmm making me think if I should just get the NGauge now and be done with it.

How did you like the power from the BDX? Where did you send it to?

I really liked it. Claimed gains were 50hp and 98lb/ft and you could feel it for sure. Better shift patterns as well. I was really happy, this has me thinking I will give them a call and see if its been fixed yet. Probably has, I am really just waiting for the EGR recall before I was going to tune it again because the strategy codes are likely to change once they do the recall and the tuner needs those codes to build the tune.

I had 5 star tuning build my tune, they email it all you do is upload to the tuner and flash ECU and your done.

I would buy the BDX from them, if you go the ebay route do they include tunes? If they don't just go to 5 star for everything. When I bought mine(from a online canadian store tdotperformance) I was under the impression it had some preloaded tunes but for the diesel it does not and I had to source a tuner. At 5 star you get 3 tunes and the tuner for 550.

Wait so why even go the tuner route if you are gaining the same claims as the stealth module that won't void your warranty?? Interesting though, I would've thought the ECM tuners would've been doing more than 50/100. Waiting to see how the member on here that ordered the stealth likes it when he gets it in.
