Got a 2011-2016 6.2L V8 Super Duty?
AREAS WE ADDRESS
Can be increased in most RPM areas for improved Torque and HP. Running a higher Octane fuel will net more power and economy from some timing/spark advancement. However, with a SD 6.2L even running 87 Octane fuel can yield some respectable gains in power and torque over stock. The knock sensors and strategy on the SD 6.2L are very good in that they can advance and retard timing while you drive.
The new 6 speed transmission that comes standard with the SD 6.2L is a big improvement in driver controls over passed Super Duty’s with the 5 speed and 4 speed transmissions. However, there are still some benefits to be had recalibrating some non tow/haul and tow/haul shift strategies so your not constantly locking and unlocking out different gear sets through the use of the manual mode(s).
NON Tow/Haul mode = We have noticed that while in normal everyday mode that the transmission will move into 6 gear really quickly around town with speeds as low as 30-38 mph this really lugs the engine and when trying to accelerate there is a pretty good delay to either downshift or accelerate. We can correct this by moving some shift strategies patterns around in 5th and 6th gears.
Tow/Haul mode = We have noticed that while towing larger heavier loads that while in tow/haul mode 4th, 5th and 6th gears come on too early during the upshift lugging the engine and creating an earlier downshift to follow. Another small issue in stock form we have found is while decelerating that the 6th, 5th and 4th gears will not downshift soon enough to bring RPMs back up to where the SD 6.2L has its best torque thus leaving engine braking not used. We can correct these strategies so the 6.2L V8 has higher RPMs in each gear set while in tow/haul mode to take advantage of the SD 6.2L’s peak engine torque.
Shift pressures can be increased and slip timers can be decreased to help keep trans temperatures down and give the truck or any vehicle a better overall feel. In a SD 6.2L shifts are quick and firm most of the delay between shifts are eliminated when using custom tunes.Shift pressures can be increased and slip timers can be decreased to help keep trans temperatures down and give the truck or any vehicle a better overall feel.

At the time of your order if your ECU strategy code is known, we will send your tuner loaded with tunes on your selected tuner. If this information is not known at the time your order is placed you will be provided a blank tuner to acquire the needed vehicle information.
Where do I find my ECU Strategy Code?
If using an SCT or Bully Dog Device: On your device under vehicle information, you will find your ECU Strategy Code. An example of an ECU Strategy Code is PKRK0R2.
Note: If your vehicle is a 2015+ we will also need your ECU SWPN (HL3A-14C204-BPH). For diesel applications we will also need your TCU Strategy (TPCL0HH) and TCU SWPN (HL3A-14C337-HH) in addition to your ECU Strategy and ECU SWPN.
If using an HP nGauge: Plug your nGauge into the OBD2 port the vehicle you intend to tune. Use the menu on your device to select TUNING, then proceed to select the PCM type and choose READ VEHICLE. Upon selecting “read” you will see a variety of vehicle options. Select your application vehicle such as: “2017 F150 Ecoboost 3.5L GTDI V6: PCM + TCM” “TC-277A 4M+TCM.”
If using an Diablo inTune or Trinity: For Diablo InTune & Trinity devices please follow the steps included with your device to acquire your stock upload file and last tune written file. The stock file will end in .frg and .grg and will include your needed vehicle information.
