I just today replaced the FICM on my 2006 F350 6.0
I have been running the 100hp performance tune for a couple of years now but recently the truck had been running terrible, like it was starving for fuel (which it was). Before I swapped the FICM (the new FICM was programmed at the dealer just before I picked it up) out I restored the stock tune. When I tried to reinstall the performance tune I got the following message:

"Feature not supported on this vehicle. Call tech support with your CAL ID. Re-flash might be required. Press enter to view CAL ID". When I pressed enter to view CAL ID I received the following information:

CAL ID: ARZ2AL00
VXCF1D6 . HEX *
TQCJ0DW . HEX *

I have restored stock tune and reloaded the performance tune several times before with no issues until now. Does this have anything to do with the new FICM?

Please email reply to tjroane@yahoo.com if you can.
Thanks,
Terry.
Yes, when they changed the FICM the calibrations were updated.

I have the U7165 version for the 2005 6.0 and when I went to install it I noticed that the instruction showed that it came with a 40, 65, 100hp tunes but when I plugged the tuner it only gave me options for the 65 or 100hp only???? did I miss something?? also when I chose the 65 tune I did not choose to modifly the tune.... but I noticed that the truck no longer has a speed limiter even though I did not choose to modify the tune???? seems like I may have got some bad info or my diablo has a evil mind of it's own...... Any imput would be helpful thank you :D

Update the tool to the latest 9r14 revision, then it will go back in the truck.

Are you running the latest 9r14?
The first tune may have been renamed as 'tow tune'.
