'Stop whatcha doin' cause I'm about to ruin the image and the style that ya use too!!' I think that's how the Humpty Dance intro goes.
The CPS 60Hp tune is no lie. I compared driving my truck to a HMMWV(Mil Spec Hummer) after I bought it. Diesel power felt like it would push through anything; now it feels like it will RUNN through anything. It kinda felt like a pregnant rhino in stock mode, a virgin rhino with the Stealth module, and now a black rhino with a vendetta.
I was able to log the various points of data during a 175 mile trip without a trailer. I was surprised the fuel rail pressure was closer to stock values compared to the Stealth module on the 'high' setting. EGT 13 bounced between 750 & 833 at 75mph/1700rpm/10th gear. Charge Air Cooler Temps floated around 84 degrees with an Outdoor Ambient & Intake Air Temp of 60 degrees. MPG planed out at 23.2.
As to the warranty debate. I personally bought the truck to enjoy it. I bought my wife's 2018 Explorer Sport from the same dealership last year and tuned it through Livernois Motorsports. Now she drives to work in a 0-60 5 second rocket....okay SUV. The newer vehicles have an extensive amount of on-board electronics that will not allow you to easily push the vehicle, engine, transmission, etc to catastrophic failure. The F150's ECU & TCU did it's job tonight. There were situations where the truck dropped power and flashed caution lights. I let off the 'drive by wire' pedal and all was well. I will definitely follow up with the tuner and relay the information I collected all in the name of forward progress.
My last diesel was a unicorn. 1996 Black F350 single cab, single wheel. Bought it May of 2000/Sold it shortly after 9/1/2001
On-board, realtime diagnostics has come a long way. That powerstroke would let me spin it past failure because I was the one in control. Not the same today folks. We just offer input but they are ultimately in control.
WReedSVT is right. If the emissions is still intact and the failure is due to design/craftsmanship, you have grounds for a warranty claim. If a 'hot tune' is ran hard, the ECU will force the vehicle into limp mode if the EGTs exceed max regen temps. During regen tonight, I logged 1019 degrees on EGT 13. My max on EGT 13 was 928 degrees while pushing it just shy of 115mph.
I plan on following up with Calibrated Power on a couple minor issues this week, but I plan on running the CPS 30Hp tune next Friday. I expect the truck will have the same 'feel' as the 60hp tune with a little less force.
Happy to lay it all out there for everyone. I never was good at pulling punches.
