    Thx = Enhanced Throttle Response

    Awesome. I’ll have to flash that one in the morning.

    Does that require the ECT button to be pushed..? I know for moose’s Mild n Wild it would...

    Nope, I have 04B81 and flashed Premium Thx, never use ECT because I don't feel the need for it anymore. In my 2017 I used to use ECT all the time, just to give perspective on how different the tune is.

    Going back to the clank on deccel.
    I went and updated acceleration downshift 2-3 tables. Raised first 2 cell by 3.
    I did not have time to hook TS up, but I saw downshift 3-2-1 flickering on my Fusion now. Need to verify with TS though .

    So. From a professional stand point and a customer service stand point, I wouldn't flash tunes on people that you have not previously looked at and vetted yourself // are willing to make adjustments for them as needed.

    I'm pulling my hair out with the CSV logger. I've read the vF instructions but I'm still confused. How do I get the CSV datalog? With the truck on (NOT RUNNING) I went to flash manager and opened the data logger. The I connected the OBM cable and hit start logging. I waited about 3 min disconnected. What am I doing wrong? What steps did I miss? Is there better step by step instructions on this?

    Go to logger, turn on truck.

    Put pids you want on the right side by clicking on them.

    Hit connect.

    Hit record.

    Hit stop record.

    Hit save log.

    Hit ctrl+p

    Open your log

    I appreciate the feedback. Definitely something to consider. Not everyone has the coin to buy the whole system... which leaves things like pedal commander the next choice. My co-worker wants the tune. I’ll start there. Either way, it’s nothing I NEED to do... I just see people asking for it in their area.

    vF is no good for login, I did get that error too.
    Issue is that with generic PID. You selected one or a few that don't exist in your ecu.
    Get free techstream.

    click "connect" and connect to your truck before selecting PIDs and it will filter them.

    Almost all techstream enhanced PIDs are coming to vF Tuner soon

    I'm with you. Tuning is mutually beneficial to all parties that engage. Just suggesting that you unlock their ECUs, paying for the rights, and review the tunes before flashing those people.

    Icon stage 3 delta joint uppers. 315/75r16 km3. Tonneau cover. Lots of little stuff..
    So after playing with the 2nd gear skip/ clunk.. I raised the pressures first to confirm what I was feeling it made the clunk 10x worse. So in my final adjustment I upped the pressure x1.13 in downshift from 3-2 and the speed up x1.13 also in the first 4 columns. Smooth so far. And stop and go traffic is better because it actually uses 2nd and feel like it responds better without the lag.

    also playing with the slip in 6th gear getting a bumpy road feel again. So will keep you guys posted
