I don't post cause I receive negativity for trying to help others. So I help people in my own way, and stay out of bs like this, with uninformed people telling me to do research. Lol
I don't think there is any negativity when someone is trying to help someone else, at one time or another we will all have someone correct us on something (nobody's perfect), after all , except a very few here, we're not professionals, so you can't expect everyone's to be correct about everything and take their word for granted...
Have it your own way, I just think PMs are a waste, if everyone was doing it, this forum like many others would be dead.
Not here to add any fuel to any fire
. But I experienced the infamous FRPP(procal) pinging with my SCT when I tried using the canned tune from SCT instead of the BAMA tune. I did post this somewhere(in a FRPP pinging thread) right when it happened, but nobody seemed to give a rats arse
, and still may not. Funny thing is, I don't give a rats arse either, just sharing, because that is what the forum is for...
FYI, the reason maybe no one gives a "rats arse" about your case is because you're posting it on a FRPP Tune thread, and this is what we're interested about here. No one here has a SCT or BAMA tune, and if they did, they would go on the SCT & BAMA threads! What is the point to go on a thread that doesn't speak about what you're speaking?? You had the ping with the SCT? Sorry to hear that, but this as nothing to do with the FRPP Tune and won't solve the problem some have with this tune. These are 2 different tunes, from 2 different companies!
If I want to find informations about some Ford Racing stuff, I'm not gonna research that in a thread that speaks about Roush Performance parts... It's obvious isn't it? ...
Personally I am not interested at all about SCT & BAMA products and this is why I'm here, reading and posting on a FORD RACING PERFORMANCE PACKAGE
thread, as I have this tune in my Mustang. Get it? I hope so, otherwise I can't do anything for you...
It seems that at least the code for certain things such as the oil life monitor is kept seperately. Otherwise, my oil life monitor would be back to counting down to 0% oil life left every 5k miles like it did before. When I just got my oil changed after 5k miles, it still showed almost 50% left.
So, putting the ProCal back on didn't overwrite or change that part for me. It's still fixed, and it wasn't when I was running the ProCal before I had the TSB done. Doesn't surprise me, as the regular Joe's who answer the phone at FRPP and at least half of the people I've spoken to at dealerships have given me incorrect or conflicting info more than a couple of times. All it takes to get the wrong info is for the person giving it to you to be wrong. I've learned to take everything with a grain of salt, no matter what the source.
Well, I will see for mine, I haven't done the new TSB for the oil life monitor, so I will see where I am after another 5000 miles, or even before; when I'll get another 2500 miles, if the monitor tells me that I have 50% left before changing oil, that will mean that the TSB was not in the ProCal either. But for now, I'm going with what my dealership and Ford Racing said to me. I'll keep you posted!
For the record, I've tried every prescribed method of "fixing" the ping and I still have it (relearn, computer reset, reflash, octane boost, different gas, no ethanol-more expensive premium, oct adj set to y, and other tries). May actually be a little worse than when it first started. Thing I find weird is that it ran fine for about a month and then wammo - ping started. Makes me think something mechanical has happened, since I've reset every computer/software issue back to pretune config, but it's back as soon as the tune is reloaded.
Anyway, this is just for the record. I am not upset with FR, just a bit perplexed and dissapointed that it doesn't work better.
Well that's kind of scary, hopefully in a month or more, I won't have it coming at me either... I've only had the tune for 8 days...
So do you still have it (as I see it in your signature) or you took it off?
