superchips on 7.3 E350

on a 2002 E350 we added the superchip turner and noticed a huge difference in power. But at the peak power setting the truck would be hard to start and would stall out sometimes. Tried installing it again and still does the same thing. Any ideas?

Have you used the tuner to retrieve the DTC's? It might give you a starting point for your diagnosis.

Yeah...it does seem more like a tuner issue than a vehicle issue.

Told me they do not support anything but "F" series I bought the SC1855 for my 2001 E350 and they sternly told me it was not supported wtf. Think I will be a bad boy and do it anyway.

Then you will have continuing issues, The programming (PCM) and ECM is much different between the E and F series. WOW I just noticed this was from 2006!

caedo has a good reputation on FTE.caedo has a good reputation on FTE.
My dad got a superchips programmer for his truck right after he got it. He still has it, but it acts up in the weirdest ways, and now it wont let me put it back to stock. It was refusing to start earlier this winter. We tried everything, finally just cleared the codes with the programmer, and boom, fired right up. But it sure isnt near the same quality as a real chip.

Thanks for the quick reply on a 6 year old post shakin off the cobwebs and my posting was in an improper location I have not installed it and will be returning it ( the program not the truck) Have any of you used a Honda generator to power the block heater as this is what my truck needs to start warm oil I think I can pull 15 amps out of the little guy.
