I'll be CPT Obvious and say you might think about cleaning your turbo. The vanes stick and it's worse when it's cold. Mine came on first thing and went away after the truck got warm. Cleaning it is...

Talking Best upgrade for 6.0L IMHO

There are threads talking about this but I didn't find one until it was by random chance and after I've owned the truck for quite a while. I tuned the FICM with the Atlas 40 tune from PHP. I don't...

I've never looked into this, so take my comment as opinion not fact.

As I think about how a VGT would interact with a BOV, the only way I can see it helping lag would be to program the VGT to run...

It's hard to say with any confidence if there is an issue there because the HPOP isn't working (I assume from your posts), and the the truck is a no-start. You should really look into troubleshooting...

There is a drainback valve that is supposed to control this. The part number for the drainback valve is 3C3Z-6800-A, I believe. Some aftermarket filters don't properly engage the valve due to other...

It won't hurt anything, but the open diff might not put much power down if one side is free spinning. I'm not an expert by any means on 4wd components. If it were mine, I would find soft ground or...

Ask him if he's done any bulletproofing. Did he replace the oil cooler or replace the bolts in the heads with studs? If he did these things when he did the injectors then it is an easier answer.

I tried to find the same answer and couldn't. My research said that if oil is in the coolant and your headgaskets aren't bad, then you have just tested your oil cooler and it failed. I'm actually...

This^. So when you get it on a good scanner look for the obvious - each glow plug has its own code. Also, ask if the FICM is drawing 48v. If it is much below that it can signal failure. I haven't...
