As title really.
I reached out to 5 star at the end of last year but they said they were still working on it.
I've now got my 2023 and wondered if anyone has them??

Livernois can do a 23 but you have to go to them; not via email. I have seen YT video of people putting a 22 ECU into a 23 truck to enable email tune functionality.

Yeah, you have to purchase a '21 or '22 ECM and have them replace your '23....so you end up having to drive all the way to Detroit and pay almost $2,000 to tune. Really annoying how Ford decided to change the ECM for 2023, I was really looking forward to tuning my 2.7L...

oh hell I didn't know that's what they were doing when you got there.. that's a bummer.

I saw a guy do it in his garage but there was substantial programming involved after physically replacing the ECU and I think the ECU was $1200 so really $800 to fix that problem really isn't bad (sucks about having to drive there though, depending on where you are located.)

I had a '24 KR on order to replace my '21 Limited.

The lack of tune availability was one reason that I ended up cancelling that order and sticking with the '21.

Yeah I saw a similar deal of someone replacing the ECM on their own too. I wouldn't trust myself to do so. I went ahead and got the JB4 and it works decent, but I know an actual tune is much better since it really helps the transmission behave better. Hopefully someone cracks the 2023+ ECMs eventually. Livernois said it will never happen, but we'll see.

If Ford has genuinely encrypted the ECU then he's probably right. I'm not sure what TRON fully entails though, as it doesn't apply to me.

I'm brand new here and although I am loving my 2023 2.7 I can feel some sloppiness in the transmission tuning. I had really hoped one of the larger
Outfits would have cracked the code by now. Ugh ! So livernois said the ecu will never be decrypted? Bummer .

Perhaps Ford was monitoring the tuned cars and said no more? Perhaps Ford Performance will come out with their own like they have for some of their other vehicles?
