Have you tried any of the things we've suggested to get the tune to go through? It really just takes persistence sometimes.

Like in the email I sent, please remove fuses 46 and 61 from under the dash, make sure it is these 2 fuses, its easy to pull the wrong ones.

Then try to load the stock tune then the Custom tune. If it fails again, please try SCT at 407-774-2447.

Since the last SCT update to this issue I have not had one issue lately, I am sorry your having problems but I can help you tomorrow as I'm traveling at the moment. I will be available tomorrow.

Tom

Got it . Finally , Pulled the 2 fuses and stock went back in after 2 tries and car started right up so I pulled the 2 fuses again and loaded the new tune and it worked , Haven't driven it yet as its raining pretty hard now but seems to cold idle better and rev easier seems Ford didn't want us playing with their strategys in these cars and made it difficult , The tune for my F-250 went right in with no problems ,
