Customer Question

I have put a 97 7.3 with e4od, out of and e super duty in my 78 f150. It runs great but I want to put a 6 position chip in it because it lacks power. The ecm/pcm dpc cose is 315. The chips I find require code 202. I put my friends ecm in and my truck ran great the ony problem is that the when I put the truck into D the transmission put the truc into 2nd or 3rd gear. Not really sure which. Any ideas of how to fix this problem?

This sounds like a modified vehicle. I am confused on what you are trying to do or what is going on. Can you re-explain?

You are trying to get a tuner chip or you have one and are having transmission issues?

sorry for the confusion. I am wanting to put a new ecm/pcm in my truck so I can use a tuner. The running gear is out of a e super duty 1997 with 7.3 and a e4od. My friend has a 1997 f250 with a 7.3 and e4od. His truck can use a tuner. I tried his ecm in my truck and everything worked but the transmission started in a higher gear than 1st. So I guess my real question is how can I get a 1997 ecm/pcm for a 7.3 with e4od out of a f series to work in my truck.
Expert:  Jeremy replied 6 months ago.

That's too much modifications for me. That is more of a question for someone that does the tuner files. i will opt out for I'm not the right expert for this question.

Oh ok. Do I have to re submit the question?
Expert:  Jeremy replied 6 months ago.

No you don't. i'm not sure why someone hasn't grabbed it yet. I will reset it on the board again since it sat for a long time.

If no one assists in the next 24 hours, ask for this to be closed and submit a new one in case there is a system lock or delay.

Good luck. I hope you get the results you need.
