Can you use FORSCAN and/or FDRS to change BlueCruise settings once it is installed?

Without reading the 229 pages in the FORSCAN thread, it is systemically possible to override pre-set maximums within BlueCruise? Specifically, the system kicks off when you hit 81 MPH. I understand the rationale for having a maximum, but in some states - this doesn’t allow for a slight buffer above the set speed limit. Is there a way to set it for like 86 MPH? Asking for a friend.

I don't think anyone with Bluecruise and FORSCAN skills have investigated that yet. But that 80 MPH limit might just be there due to the fact that your APIM and IPMA etc. may not have sufficient processing power to react any faster than what would be considered safe at 80 MPH.

This is the same APIM that's been used in other Ford vehicles for years. Now with new and improved demands on it's capabilities.
