E350 6.0 Diesel power tuning

I have a 6.0 liter diesel in an E350 Van and I was wondering if anyone make any kind of programing to boost the power. I know it is derated in horsepower from the F series programming. I want to boost horsepower to at least match the F series. Superchip, Bully Dog both say they have nothing for the E series. So is there anyone out there that can reflash or chip the E series.

E series is just the body style, no? it still has an 6.0. in it (btw, it helps to put your vehicle info in your signature so others know exactly what you have).

I know one thing about working on 6.0's in vans an its a beyotch because a friend had one. Unless your willing to pay to have the whole body pulled and re-do the factory head bolts with ARP head studs and replace head gaskets (of course), I'd forget about programming it.

And if you go that far you might as well do a complete egr delete, coolant flush and filter, not to mention you're probably wanna get some pillar mounted gauges EGT, Tranny temp if your pulling anything heavy, Boost and an electronic gauge like the Edge Insight, ScanGauge2, etc.....

That programmer doesn't just cost you $500. That's just the tip of the iceberg my friend. when you're all done you might as well add another "0" to the end of that number.

All the best to ya.

I have the Hyperteck Max Energy Series programer on my F250.
Just checked the site and they do have a programer for the 2005 E350.
The Hypertech are guaranteed to not program to hurt your truck and they will increase the HP up to 114HP.
If your van is derated it will increase the power above that rating.

I am very satisfied with the service of my programer and never regrete using it for the last 3 years.

Be careful. Ford de-tuned the E-Series for a reason....heat. More power, more fuel, more heat. Based on what I've read, my van tends to run hotter in the summer than the pickups and regularly hits 215 or more just cruising down the highway cycling the engine fan often. This appears to be normal behavior for my van and if you've ever peaked under the hood or behind the dog box you'll see why heat is an issue. The only reason I'd consider one is for economy, not power, but so far I'm satisfied with what I have.

Good Luck!

As Ridntall said, the E-series 6.0L is rated at what International designed the engine to run at HP wise. Ford bumped up the HP for the F-series by 85 hp.

Could you post some pics of your van for us?

I'm sure you could get a SCT for it just don't go for any crazy HP tunes

Thanks for all of the tuning help

van power

i have a 2005 e-350 6.0 with a diablosport predator on the 60hp adjustment. no increase in mileage using it. i am running a 4.10 gear and i'm getting 15.5-15.8 mpg with amsoil 5w-30 deisel oil and converted to a sportmobile oil filter system, filter and bypass. this is my work van and i run about 30,000 miles per year. i know this is about a year and a half late on responding but i thought i would share. i am thinking about trying a fitch catalyst in the future

Ok guys, here is the rig. Better late then never. After being laid-off and a bout with cancer, here it is to this point.

nice looking van. if you're confident enough to tackle a conversion like that, working on the engine is well within your skills. as far as excess heat, yes the vans are derated because they just don't have the room to put as heavy duty a cooling system, as what the trucks get. water injection could help hold the heat down. as far as head gaskets go many people have run hot tunes on stock bolts, the thing that they have in common, is a tendency to let it warm up nice before putting the boots to it. or you could just do head studs one at a time, without pulling the motor.

Personally, I'd still do the whole head stud thing (or be at least prepared to do it) if you run a tuner. Our shop works on just as many stock E series 6.0s as F series 6.0s.

Thank guys for the compliments, right now I am having the typical problem of the the sticky or stuck VG turbo. So is it easier to recondition the old turbo or is it easier to replace the turbo?

Thanks for the help
