WHAT IS TUNE VERSION 1.05.1?

This tune is a tune designed for trucks that experience a low rpm stutter from the torque converter. (automatic only)



SHOULD I UPDATE TO 1.05.1?

This update is only necessary if your truck experiencing characteristic "stumbling" or stuttering, "Bumpy road feeling" during low RPM (1200-2000 RPM) at low throttle and low to moderate speed (15mph - 50 mph)


ARE THERE OTHER UPDATE IN 1.05.1 THAT REQUIRE ME UPDATING THE ECU?

Unless your truck experiences this very specific issue, updating is not required.


ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL THINGS THAT ARE NECESSARY TO DO WHEN PERFORMING THIS UPDATE?

Yes. After flashing the update, you will need to reset the AT and LV values in the ECU.
Perform it this way:
1. Flash the truck. After completion, start the truck.
Run flash Manager P5Flash Utility
Select "Reset LV" after completion select "Reset AT"
After completion you are finished.
