If not, is there a service report number for this procedure I can give my dealer? Also, I thought I read somewhere that I can program the auto engine brake to automatically come on when I start the truck instead of having to turn it on every time but I am having trouble finding that in the settings....
Unfortunately, both of those are simply forum speculation. No 2017 reflash for power, no persistent exh brake. There is a trick you can get the exh brake to come one for one startup, but then it reverts off the next time you start up. Hoping for a FORSCAN discovery at some point to auto-enable it, but for now you'll have to push the button

Well, that solves that! I guess I will have to be happy with "only" 925 ft lbs of torque.

Furthering the HP/TQ speculation... The chance that the 2017 will ever get that bump may be quite remote. The newer model has a slight change to the head and this physical change may be what allows for a tuning change that gets that bump.
