    Im more specifically speaking to Forced Induction cars just after install of a blower or turbo to get rid of the P0300? Have you had to do it more than once for it to actually take/work? Did any of you have to take it to the Ford dealer to do on their IDS system?

    I had to do a Crank Relearn on my whipple install on my 2017 mustang gt and was very easy and only had to do it only once.Only took about 30 seconds after warming the motor up to operating temp.

    No issues here, had the crank variation code immediately after the Whipple tune was installed (instructions said it would), used the supplied Cantelope tool/Flare software to do the re-learn, went through the first time and haven't had a problem since.

    Around 3k miles on the setup, dyno'd and multiple track outings so far.

    I had trouble with mine throwing the P300 code even after multiple relearns, so I lifted the rpm for misfire detection because it seemed to throw that code only when the engine was around idle rpms. I think it might be related to aftermarket clutch’s and flywheels with a different mass. Haven’t had a P300 since.
