    Mine runs fine, except 20% worse fuel economy and worse shifting. Have you had a chance to see how the mpg's stack up against your original tune?

    Do not rule out working with your hands, but it does not preclude using your head.

    Lucky Dog, mine ran fine out of the dealer. I even posted just like you did, but the next morning when cold the true impact of the recall was realized. I hope you're really "lucky"

    Everyone's truck, including mine, runs well when they pick it up because the engine is hot from the update. If you're one of the folks who do not have a problem you wont know until tomorrow morning when it's cold. Also, if you drive on the flat and level roads even with the lag it will be less noticeable. But try to pull out into traffic or go up an incline when it's cold....or tow a 7K trailer....that will be the test.

    I've had mine back for a month or more. I just today towed an enclosed trailer, just a small one, 6'x10', full height. I towed it fully loaded for about 45 miles this morning at 55mph (the speed limit), then unloaded it and drove it unloaded for another 25miles, then put a 42" riding mower into it and towed it another 30 miles. I had no issues and have had none since I had the AEM done. My mileage is the same as it was before.
