Nvm I did the change through forscan to try it out and with the new values from the spreadsheet calc I found on f150forum it was dead on with waze gps. So if anyone ever needs help lemme know I can link the stuff needed
See photo I have attached with a screen capture of my personal FORScan spreadsheet. I have not applied this change yet, just researched how to do it a while back in prep for whenever I upsize my tires.
That is exactly what I used! Typed in my 295/55r20 and punched in the value it gave me into BCM 726-12-01 and it was dead on with the waze gps on my phone so I am calling her good! I did have to do the PCM and TCM relearn to clear the wrench as well.
You sure about this?
I found it listed specifically for the diesel on a bunch of sites.
Matter of fact, I was like 30 seconds away from ordering it on 4wp's site.
Did you try the one for the diesel and it not work?
Well, here is what Hypertech actually states on their product page: "This module is perfect for vehicles with computers that don't allow for tire and gear ratio correction"--see attached screenshot below. We are driving a vehicle that does allow for tire and gear ratio correction via FORScan.
By the way, I am more than double the age of the internet, and I think @wreedsvt is as well, so neither of us are new to the internet, we are just suggesting another and lower cost option of correcting for tire size change. Now you can do what you want with this information, and make your own informed decision on the approach you want to take.
The members of this forum are all very supportive to one another in providing knowledge sharing and assistance, and we understand that people will select different options based on what their personal preference is. For example, with disabling Auto Stop-Start (ASS), some guys prefer to take apart their dash and install an inline unit such as https://www.autostopeliminator.com, others disable via FORScan, and others like wreedsvt disconnect the BMS cable under the hood--all three options disable ASS, but in this case the inline solution still retains the on the fly enablement of ASS in case you're in situational driving where it would be beneficial to have it enabled--so the inline option provides more feature capability over the other two options. In the case of Hypertech vs. FORScan, I am not aware of any benefits the Hypertech unit provides over FORScan and comes with the risk of damaging dash components with the disassembly and reassembly of the dash to perform the install. @yokev -- report back on how your Hypertech install and configure goes so that others can benefit and learn from your experience--thanks!
@wreedsvt sounds like you will have it spot on soon. Post results after you have a chance to tweak and validate. Also interested in mpg impact with your larger tires. I'm wondering if the diesels are less impacted on mpg for upsized tires than gassers, so really curious on your report. Thanks!
I was initially a little scared about popping my cluster out, but after watching the instruction video it appeared uber easy. Literally took me 10 mins from tools on floor, to the unit in and tools back on floor.
They have you program it on your computer first(and it also updates itself if need be), where contrary to hand-helds, you simply put in your stock tire size, and your new tire size in the next column.
I hooked up my old Garmin Nuvi after I installed it, and surprisingly it shows it being SPOT on.
Again, with at least my experience with hand-helds, the speedo is never spot on. I've taken the measurements off the manufacture's site and used 'em, and I've also used chalk on the ground to get my tires exact measurement, and I've still been off a couple mph at freeway speed.
What makes the accuracy of this thing more silly, is it just uses the generic measurement for your tire size. Obviously every manufacturer's tires measure out differently, but again, my speedo is spot on, from 25mph up to 80mph-which is where I stopped comparing
I have a 2018 F150 diesel King Ranch with just about every option. I wanted to post a list of some of the issues and recalls I have worked through, and see what other owner's experiences were. The recalls take a lot of time and effort going back and forth to the dealer, but I love the truck...
Had my oil changed today in my 2018 f150 and the dealer used xo10w30qsdf instead of the recommended oil. I asked them about it and they told me Ford changed the recommended oil after I bought my truck. Will it hurt anything to leave it in there?
I am seeking to learn more about the quantity of vehicles like mine and also more info about my truck I don't know. I recently saw a post about underrated towing recently and even frame thickness. Where can I find this information? Also for the frame I have a 2018 3.0 Diesel King...
I put my 2018 F-150 Powerstroke in Eco mode 99.9% of the time. The slower starts don't bother me, and I like to try to maximize my mileage. Tow mode seems to keep it in higher gears and downshift more. Rain/snow mode just seems to really reduce torque to the wheels at take off. I can feel...
Everyone has been so helpful on this forum so thought I'd try another question. Prior to me getting the FORSan up and running (Thanks jmperlik for instructions and thanks Sholtzj for the info on the OBDLink EX and discount (RCDECUMX) at scantool.net) I have several scangauges that I use in...
