The VIN doesn't change that info. It will come back as how the truck was originally built

that won't work, again it goes by emission calibration...you get the wrong calibration your truck won't run worth a crap

My limited experience with emissions testing only involved testing exhaust gases. What was measured in the gases defined the pass or fail parameters. California is this anomaly out there that fortunately most of us don't have to deal with and honestly I have no idea of what you are dealing with but your question is a classic example of "Catch 22." You seem to need something you can't get without having what you need.

I'm not about to question the information you've gotten from a certified Ford parts guy. He knows in's and out's about this I'm in no position to question and I assume the same goes for you. I do have doubts about someone saying they can reprogram your PCM but not know or have the information needed to reprogram the PCM. It's sounds more like a, "pay us and we'll give it a shot," situation. If you pursue this farther there are two things I would ensure about your relationship with them. 1.) That whatever they do can be undone and put back to original programming. 2.) That you don't pay for programming that doesn't result in what you need. I'm reminded of the early PATS days when there were a lot of programmers out there that said they could "fix" a PATS problem and all they did was make the problem worse.

Your best option may be an aftermarket transmission controller. They're not cheap (inexpensive) but it may solve your module communication problems based on module ID numbers. I'm not sure how this works in California but I have known a few people that have swapped Mustang transmissions in California and used an aftermarket controller and they passed emissions testing in California. Just a suggestion but you may want to try a Mustang forum with your question just because you may find more people there that have dealt with this more than you may find here. Swapping transmissions is just more common among street rodders than F150 owners. @Djfllmn might have an opinion on this due to his knowledge on state standards for emissions testing.

I can tell you this though, in many states including here in Michigan your vehicle is illegally titled and registered. You've assembled a vehicle with disparate parts that don't match the vehicles original titled VIN. Because of that you need to retitle your truck as an "Assembled Vehicle." Some people get away with it but if they get caught it's expensive.

It's doubtful anyone has this, as the Supercrews never had the 4r100 option. Only 4r70w. You might be better off finding a 7700 computer. I honestly think it doesn't matter on the 4.6/5.4 computer. Both learn the same and is only programming that changes anything it does. You would probably be better off having a tune created for your application.
