I'm gunna go out on a limb here.

The 4.7L engine does not need to be be retuned to run e85. What would be the point of that.

The computer does however have the capacity to "learn" and adjust fuel ratio based on a variety of data. I'm going to assume what Chinchilla actually meant was that he drove for 10 tanks to make sure the adaptive learning tables had been replaced with date pertaining to E85 rather than regular gasoline. I could of course be wrong here, but unless he bought a tuner with a special E85 program this is the only thing that makes sense.
