Is this tune for the van, or the pickup, or is there a difference?

Good point, does 5 star distinguish between the F and E? I know that DP tuner does, one of the reasons I went that route

Re: SCT Performance Tuner w/ 5-Star Tunes 7.3 Ford Diesel Tu

I am under the impression that 5-star tunes are specific to the ECU and that you can't install tunes programmed for one ECU into another ECU -- even if it's the same make, model, engine, etc. You can, in theory, reuse the tuner. You have to send it back to 5-star and they can re-do it, but the savings aren't very much.

It's easy to confirm - just call 5-star and ask them.

I believe it will still have to be recoded to match the new owner's VIN. Shouldn't be a big deal, but I don't know what they would charge. They do that so the same module can't be used for multiple vehicles. Still a great option for somebody though.

So you're saying Mike, the owner of 5-Star Tuning lied to me?

Also, could you create your own thread if you want to discuss it instead of filling this for sale thread with your opinion?

Re: SCT Performance Tuner w/ 5-Star Tunes 7.3 Ford Diesel Tu

Wow, sorry I'm not trying to discourage any sale here. I'm sure Mike didn't lie to you, rather I suspect you didn't ask the right question or maybe we are talking about different things. Yes, the unit I'm sure can be used for a 7.3 in a truck or van, but the VIN of the vehicle has to be coded in so that the unit will work said truck or van. At least that's how it worked with the two SCT units I've used. Not a huge hurdle for anyone looking to buy. Good luck with the sale.
