I'd see if you can download new data for the tuner, take your truck back to stock and then reload. I see a lot of problems with the tuners having bad data. Good luck.

Lol yes that has been exactly the issue SCT has revised their firmware and tunes to run the updated p series ford flashes which in order to update your tuner you need to return to stock and have reflashed at dealer then put on new updated SCT tune I'm sure we will get it worked out just curious if any else run into yet but may be too new to see results .

You ARE aware that the update is to narrow the parameters that sense impending problems within the engine? Ford supposedly wants to put the engine into 'limp' mode sooner than with the original computer program would do it to reduce major warranty issues. 'Course your warranty is toast if Ford finds the tuner install...you still under warranty?
The flash on my '09 is a total positive result--except the CEF warning is inconsistent and regens are also not always seen on the dash. I seem to have gained almost 1 mpg hand-calculated since the flash was installed.
You seem to be aware it is an SCT issue, not Ford.
Good luck.
Joe

I see a lot of guys with problems using the SCT. They are on the diesel forum all the time. Seems like a bunch of other people write the tunes for them and not all of them are good. I have a Super Chip tuner which is limited but works well. I use the heavy tow and it gives me more hp and torque but is a safe tune. I was going to buy the SCT to tune the trans as well but I'm afraid of screwing up the truck. Good luck.

Yes my truck is now out of warranty I done the dpf delete and tuner in 08 at 40,000kms I am close with my dealer and have never had an issue the truck had been awesome I now have 197,000kms on my truck and have just done these updates and now this issue just a warning to SCT users to maybe hold off on the updates though it does give you more options I think there is still some bugs for SCT to work out to mesh with fords new programming thanks all ...

Finally found my problem the dealer had me convinced it was my oil cooler and might as well do the hpfp while the cab is off glad I held off and done alot more reading and phone calls to only have to change my thermostats and problem solved ! I imagine alot of you running the 6.4 after getting the new ford reflash will discover the same issue with reduced engine power mode see with the new update it reads the temp difference between the coolant temp and the oil temp to detect early oil cooler clogging issues BUT will also throw the same codes with simple hyperextended thermostats
