Can anyone chime in?

I have the intune 3 platinum 8145 device.

Car is a 2014 Ford explorer sport, 3.5L TT ecoboost

It was running fine with the 87 octane tune. Updated the device with the latest software (i2000_diablo_ford_tune_2r02t.itf)

Decided to try out the 91 octane tune, loaded up fine, but car would not start, tried again, same result.

Went back to 87 octane tune, car runs as it should.

Any ideas why 91 octane tune won't work?

Cant say I have ever seen that.
Can you load the 91 tune then grab the last tune written file from the tunes folder and post it here, with the info.xml file from the i3 drive so we can check it out?

I plugged the device to my computer last night, it said there were updates available, I updated, tried 91 tune again and it work'd! car runs fine.

Every so often I check your website for updates, every time I update, I check between tunes on my car and either one of them doesn't work.:87 or 91.

This was not the 1st time this happened; anyway, I'm gonna leave the 91 on there for now. I will post the info eitherway on here once I get home.

Thanks for the response.
