Towing Scenario & Question:
So I used a Superchip Flashpaq (from another truck) to put my truck into a heavy tow tune before pulling my 12K pound camper up the mountain last weekend. Pulled great all along the interstate, got to the bottom of the mountain, all was well. Few miles from our campsite I got a spitting and sputtering almost like losing fuel but mainly just a loss of power. Threw the lovely P01211 code for the ICP above normal as well as excessive pressure (forgot code). I let it go for the weekend and cleared the codes and put the tune back to stock thinking once I unhook and use the truck unloaded it should be ok. I was wrong. Unloaded it would hit a certain RPM and not go any further or have any power while mainly uphill, threw the same code again. Luckily I limped it back home 120 miles, (still in stock tune) while every once in awhile it lost power and spit and sputtered while interstate driving (rolling hills), other times it ran like a striped ass ape. Drove to a softball game last night unloaded, threw the code again while coming home but felt like it had power the whole time. I tightened up all my intercooler boot clamps as well as turbo clamps cause it sounded as if there was an air leak somewhere, inspected all boots, they were in good shape (just replaced with riffraff boots not long ago).
The question I have is, will I need to have my computer reflashed from the dealer or reputable shop to return it to actual factory stock due to the Superchip screwing it up? Or do I have a legitimate ICP/IPR problem? Thank you for any help or insight you can provide. Truck details/mods are listed below in signature. [/SIZE]
