    THe codes are already in this thread - i posted them - they are on page #2 of this thread post #16. You really should read thru this thread if you plan on using ForScan and making changes to your truck.

    Just returned from Raptor Assault course. My co-driver partner has done the Forscan mods to his truck. I got the low down and ordered my OBDII. Gonna do this thing!!! The key seems to be MAKE THE BACKUP, and take it slow and careful.

    So I have my Bluetooth FORScan from Amazon, I have the spreadsheet with the codes. I have read through the string several times to be prepared and ready to dive in. I have downloaded the software for the ODDLink, but I have not connected anything yet. Is the mention of password to the FORScan Forum to get more info? Do I need a password to do anything or is that just access to more info from users of FORScan?

    FORScan is software - its is only available thru the FORScan forum / website and it is only available with a license ( this is free for 2 months). What you bought is the OBD interface but you need the software to make changes.

    I have made many of the most popular mods. They all work great with one exception. The Reverse Tilt Mirror is not working at all. I saw in the notes column that the 2018 may need FCxx for 740/741-13-01, so I tried that with no better results. I went to the link in the notes column for proper adjustment, and followed the instructions. My mirrors do not move at all when I put it into reverse. Any ideas??

    It's really cool to be able to do all these things to our trucks. Even cooler that it doesn't cost an arm and a leg!

    I haven't read through all the available changes yet ,
    Is it possible to have IATs displayed somewhere on the dash? It'd be nice to see how well the heat exchanger works in different climates or under heavy use.

    You need the Ngauge or equiv to get IAT or IAT 2's I believe.
