    Nice that the dealer would do this without apparently having the owner bring up the issues related specifically to the just released TSB. I'd like to see the service order to confirm - just to be sure they did what they say they did. Not that a dealer would ever mislead someone. ?? so how do you reflash the TCU in 1.04 when Mat says to ignore because it does not exist?

    Funny, never saw someone getting it installed. Just quoted what was said while at Magnuson. Roughly $6k for the kit and about $1500 in labor, release was also supposedly September. But what did you find out since that was BS?:)

    Which version of the kit do you have? Either way do not flash anything to the ecu right now.
    Do an identification on the ecu and tcu and send me the details

    Thanks for the reply Mat. I have the OG dongle kit. I'll ID the ECU & TCU and send the files to you tomorrow morning. Which email do you want me to send to you? Thanks again for building this tune, Mat. Driving on the stock tune sucks some serious ass.

    There are. Just moved back from there. But it's a "Me Too" truck. It's the most popular vehicle on the island.

    The procedure is only needed IF you are buying the tune.

    When you buy the tune ID-ing your ECU is a key to making sure you receive and install the correct tune file for your ECU.
