I believe I saw some other tuners can also make it so you can always see which gear your vehicle is in within the gauge cluster area. Do you have the ability to do things like that as well in tandem with your adapt-x tune?
I just recently got my Explorer ST and winter is coming up quickly so I will keep you in mind come spring when I am sure I will be excited to pick a tune. Thanks!
It really depends, you're talking about the firmware of the rom, the actual source code that makes up the software on the ecu. You are essentially taking a rom designed for a certain trim/package and then flashing that to a vehicle that to a vehicle that didn't have that same rom.
If one trim package offers it and the other doesn't, that's a "strategy code" change and an entirely different rom file. I typically like to keep the same rom the ecu came with and then apply our changes that make up the tune. This is why mustang owners lose their drive modes with some tuners because some tuners rather send out 1 file for all ecu's vs. having a patch file for each rom individually.
TLDR, if your current rom doesn't have it then you won't have it with Adapt-X, I like to be as least invasive as possible. The goal of Adapt-X is too keep as many tables factory as possible, less is more. I only touch what I need to touch to increase power.
