1211 is ICP uncontrollable. Sometimes i see this on the 7.3 alot, depending on cal id, what is yours and what tune are you running, is it the 85hp?

1249 is wastegate code. Have a look at that and see if something is going on there...

yea the programmer can hold on to 5 custom tunes at a time, if you go into modify params there is quite a big list of stuff you can play with on the 7.3. Yes i can write you a program for your specific mods etc, you would have to email me your original backup first.

no for some reason this is the 2nd time i have heard of that cal id, with the 85hp tune having an issue. I have tried to rectify it before but forget if it worked or not. And no i have heard of no issues with the 85hp tune and there is no extra cost for me to write you something

we usually don't do any tuning here unless its for development purposes. EVENTUALLY i want to do a few things with this tool, so i will need a test truck eventually. I will keep you in mind. For now, your backup will work. Who makes those tires, i can do some base NOV work on the tune to try and get it shifting nicer as well. And to answer that question i missed, no climate should no effect the tunes all too much, there are eot and iat modifers in the factory settings for changing climates as well as specific altitude tables.
