Have no link, was told by the local Ford Dealer truck mechanic thats also a good friend of mine, that they already had turbo failues and some had recieved a "Flash Update" that increases it to 800 ft/lb torque cause of complaints of lack of turbo boost lbs

Don't know for sure... trailer is @6.5K & each roll is close to 1000 (there's 15 on there). Would have added two more rolls, but discovered the trailer tire was separating as we were loading! They weren't left off because of the truck!

We replaced a 2000 F350 Lariate dually (7.3) with this machine - would say this 250 performed beyond expectation!!

Very disturbing when you see a post saying the turbo is blowing up.... next load is a trailer full of beef to the sale barn...

Pulling about 22-23000 lbs & turbo kicked in a few times at @ 50%... no complaints here about power...

He is wrong. There have been turbos fail I am sure. Anything mechanical can fail, and first year runs are always more suspect. The rate of true failure is almost nil though. Several of the reported "failures" turned out to be misdiagnosis of oil or coolant leaks, where there was a damaged seal and the turbo was mistakenly replaced for them-- they released a service message about this. There are also a few floating out there with a mis-adjusted wastegate which again, has been misdiagnosed as turbo failure. These have been fixed in production and as all the new 6.7's warranty claims are, reviewed throughly, probably more so than I have seen in any other new powertrain launch ever.
The latest software is a p!$$!ng match with GM. The 6.7 Super Duty hit the market before the 6.6 GM twins. They showed their cards first. GM then released the 6.6 with slightly more power than the Super Duty. The 'Job 2' trucks will have this software. And for the first time, Ford is upgrading the software on previously sold trucks to the latest (400 hp/800 tq) upgrade. The reflash is primarily to put more power down than GM. It will also result in a small increase in economy, even though they already get better economy than the GM twins.
They are going to include some other enhancements to cure a software glitch or two that have popped up-- the 2-3 flare and the stuck in 5th. Surprisingly, there have been very few of those. The launch so far is going well, with very few issues. Compare to EITHER the 6.0 or the 6.4 launch and this has been almost as perfect as any launch can be. I remember not being able to drive brand new 6.0's off the transport because they ran so poorly.

Thanks for that info. I HAVE A QUESTION. Today, I receive my new F250 with the 6.7 diesel. I was told it was built in August 16th. How do I find out if it has the Job 2 upgrade?

You can have the dealer check your PCM to see what version it is running.

No. 8/23/10 is the production change, unless they have gotten it before it left the plant's lots(doubtful). Your dealership should update it , as they are supposed to update everything in inventory and cannot sell a vehicle with outstanding FSA's.

So builds after 8/23 will come from the factory with the 400/800 flash, but this is not the start of Job 2 production, correct? I have seen November 2 as the supposed launch of Job 2.

An insider friend of mine said the truck was originally supposed to launch with the 400/800 tune, but they de-tunded the first batch just because they knew that GM would try to top whatever they put out. From what I hear, there is still even more power available without actual hardware changes.

That bull crap, he must have bought a GM and know wish he bought a ford.

My dealer has sold 60+ units and not one has came back., and thats a fact. I got the first 6.7 from my dealer and I have it running on a Hot Shot hauler and have over 40000 miles on her at last report and the only time it saw the shop was for service and a tire repair.

And thats my story and I'm sticking to it.
