Ox-y-GenIII I'll definitely reply with any updates.

Also, since the rev limiter was raised to 7,000, I wonder if they changed anything else? Like the speed limiter? It was about 119/120 before tune.

roswelltop Ox-y-GEN, would appreciate hearing updates and outcome.

Ox-y-GenIII I've emailed Aric. Looking to get a few things clarified or adjusted if possible.

The 4-5 shift and 5-6 shift is a little too firm for my liking. Even under light acceleration.

The 1-2 shift is smooth under light accel, but under heavy accel or WOT it's harsh. And abrupt.

Also under medium heavy to heavy accel the trans felt like it slipped out of gear in first then went back in before shifting. I'll try some more today to see if I get that feeling again. Never has any of the slippage or anything before tune.

And lastly the fans run way too much. Not even driving aggressively the fans are on all the time. I don't like that. Its cool out. Like 35* cool.

Cars much quicker and responsive. Haven't gotten on it much yet. I don't normally drive like that anyways

In the same screen where you choose the applicable octane tune there should be a 'stock' selection, iirc.

4mikebruns I had to have 2 separate wire harnesses replaced that are for my TCM due to the harnesses having temporary power losses. I was getting service transmission lights and odd shifting with the tune and it also happened once again after i flashed back to stock before having it repaired. If i reflash my 93 oct tune again should I be ok?

Jburks Sorry i thought Kaykay said he only had the shutter after the tune which led me to believe it was related to the tune and not a mechanical issue. my bad.

roswelltop I used the Injected tune on my '13 SE 5spd, and got one for my '14 Ti DCT. Have had no problems with either one.

As a test, I recently hooked up the tuner and took the car back to "stock", and posted about it on here. My reaction was that in stock mode, that this car couldn't get out of its own way.

I quickly took it back to the "93 tune", which is the aggressive set up.

Love it.

Tuning the DCT is not the same as physically making a defective DCT a good one (if it was defective or misbehaving). If you have issues with the way it shifts stock, tuning the car won't help. Get the car to the Ford dealer, get the issues fixed first, then tune to your heart's content.

A tune won't repair a leaking rear main seal or DCT input shaft seal. If the clutch is slipping due to physical contamination a tune can't repair this.

Injected offers a tune for the engine and DCT, but no tuner can correct mechanical faults via software.
