Yeah we're fly by wire. The stupidest thing they did was to build in a delay on deceleration so my stick shift drives like a darned automatic in traffic.

I call it "fly by commitee" :lol Everything we ask our trucks to do requires electronic "approval" before we get our wish! And we thought we were in charge! :lol :lol

You are right that the "deceleration fuel cut off" (DFCO) is programmed into the VCM. It IS "re-programmable", BUT you need someone who knows what they are doing.

It is NOT "one" field you change. It is one parameter table plus FOUR complete graphs! "Don't try this at home."
