At this point we have not started development on the F150 3.0l diesel. We should be receiving a new truck in April for development. It will most likely take a solid year of testing before we release tuning as we need to perform on-road testing, trailer tow testing (Eisenhower Pass), high ambient testing (Davis Dam) and Las Vegas city traffic, cold testing, drive ability testing, etc. We tend to take our time and want to get it correct before releasing to the field.
Thanks for the warm welcome.
So, ask them.@GreenDiesel ...
I've never ran a tune on a truck before, but what I have been reading in the forum about the upcoming GDE tune and it likely providing a "software EGR delete" has me interested, in that if we can keep the exhaust from recirculating and have cleaner oil I would think that would be a good thing for the longevity of the engine.
It also seems the GDE tune may reduce soot output and stretch out distance needed between Active Regens, although to accomplish that we may have to disable Auto Regen in Settings via OCR enabled through FORScan--unless the GDE tune will alter the forced Active Regen interval set by Ford at 300 miles.
So that is the question, will GDE alter the forced Active Regen interval set by Ford at 300 miles to a longer interval (if this is even possible)? I'm not sure why Ford did this instead of just having the Active Regens only trigger at DPF 100% Full.
Thanks, and we are all looking to hear more news about the upcoming GDE tune for our trucks.
If you can accept a void engine warranty then delete it. Plenty already have. Not any members on here, but check out the 3.0L Powerstroke group on Facebook.If this tune dramatically increases time between active regens (which it seems like it may, if the ecodiesel forums are indicators) and the vehicle will still pass state emission testing, both GDE and Ford will get a sale. My required driving makes owning a diesel imprudent in the mean time. Oil life extension is a nice benefit, but honestly if the only nuisance of diesel ownership was more frequent oil changes I wouldn't have given it a second thought. I can accept potential loss of engine warranty with a good engine.
So, ask them.
I asked them a question on a Weekend day a few months ago and got their answer the same day. They have great customer relations per Ram people who have their tune.
Do you have an update on the expected availability on your F150 tune ?
are you experiencing any tuning issues ?
Will you offer a turbo brake ?
Will you tune the 10spd ?
