Default TSB for ecoboost how to tell it was performed

So I brought my Truck to the dealer today to get my Remote start activated and the TSB done for the idle issue on the 3.5L motor.

The notes stated they performed TSB# 11-7-20 Re-Programmed the PCM to latest update.

My question is how do I know if they did this.

I seen that others stated that the Instant fuel mileage window shows more increments as well as the gear selection showing at all times.

On my truck neither of these are present.

Anyone else know how to tell if the dealer is blowing smoke up my *** about this being performed.

Thanks

Ford has a system called Oasis that records everything about your truck...when you run the V.I.N.

Not that this will be the tell all, you can probably have someone run it on the internet if you search hard enough. Maybe a "tech" on the board has access? If not, I can see if one of my friends can run it. (been a long time since I've talked to him)

I am a knowledgeable guy and it just kills me that I can't trust a dealer to perform a simple task...

Not sure about the increments but the gear selection is user controlled. Hit the plus to turn it on. If you want it to come back on next time you start your truck, go into the system menu and select the menu memory option.

Is there a TSB out for the "Ecoboost Stutter"? (the rough idle) Anybody have the TSB number? Mine has had the "stutter" since taking delivery.

I had the PCM update a couple of weeks ago on mine.....anytime the truck is started now, the gear indicators show up on the dash by default.
