  1. 99 F250 5.4/6.8 Swap

    1999-2007 Gas Engines
    Never did do it. I worked for a guy that had a couple at the local feedlot....the gas they drank was a big turn off for me. ......i finally just gave the 5.4 new life and then had to sell for the 03 6.0 in my description when a neighbor gave me an offer i couldn't let by.....from what i...
  2. How many miles on your truck??

    6.4L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    How many miles on your 6.4?? What repairs?? I'm pushing around 90,000 on mine. DPF took a dump, so I got a tuner and 4 inch exhaust. The Egr valve then took a dump, fixed that with an Egr delete. Truck has had nothing else go wrong. Pulls a 30 foot gooseneck grossing out at 35-39k regularly.
  3. Stuck on side of the road again

    6.0L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    I have a pressure gauge in mine. Empty it'd run around 11 psi. Loaded, it'd rise to 16 then release pressure, rise and release about 10 times a minute. That's when I was puking coolant all over...
  4. Oil cooler replacement, EGR delete on my own. Freaking out here! Need help!

    6.0L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    I have done my two trucks along with many others on Oil cooler replacements and EGR deletes. Just follow the directions that come with the parts and you'll be fine. When it says do something, DO IT. Cutting corners on these motors always costs you time and get's you in a deep mess.

  7. Custom tuning options??

    Upgrades and Aftermarket - 6.0L Engine
    I might be interested in 6.4 tunes also. The truck is in my sig. Has a DPF and EGR delete.
  8. Custom tuning options??

    Upgrades and Aftermarket - 6.0L Engine
    Alrighty. I spend time at the drags, so that's what I'm after the performance for. I'm after economy, and honestly, if it'll beat the other guy at the stoplight, that's awesome too. I kinda figured that it was through that SCT computer sofware and emailing, but just wanted to be sure, so...
  9. Custom tuning options??

    Upgrades and Aftermarket - 6.0L Engine
    I guess I'd like to say it's not really a slip. When you go it's just fine, but when you let off and try to go again, it's like you put it in neutral until you actually put it in neutral and then it'll go again....basically you have to reset it. To all the other guys who have tunes, I'm mainly...
  10. Custom tuning options??

    Upgrades and Aftermarket - 6.0L Engine
    Hey guys, I have been running an SCT SF3 3015 on my 06 for around a year now. I am in love with the tow tunes and the options for the tranny and the Jake brake from the turbo, etc. I have noticed that the Performance mode tends to make the engine do weird things and the Street mode makes the...
  11. bought 08. no tuner but has no cat or dpf!?

    6.4L Upgrades and Aftermarket - Engine
    I ran my 08 with the delete pipe approximately 9 miles til it went into a regen cycle....the exhaust shop said I didn't need the tuner, turns out I did as suspected. Yes your truck has a tune, unless your just REALLY lucky. lol
  12. Improving mpg....

    '11-16 Upgrades and Aftermarket
    It depends on your dealer. The dual tip with the cooling cutouts is considered at least in the 6.4 owners manual a "functioning" part of the DPF system. I'll leave that to you to think about, but if it's called "functioning", chances are that if the dealer isn't easy going that it could void the...
  13. MPG Drop For No Apparent Reason

    6.0L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    Well done sir! Always glad to hear someone made it over the little speed bump successfully!! Have a good one!
  14. HELP LOST GLOW PLUG!!!!

    6.0L Power Stroke Engine and Drivetrain
    That's a fantastic idea te805! I'll keep that in mind. I've done glow plugs on a couple other 6.0s for guys since..... Have'nt lost one since now that I know that there's other holes to go down into......I'll definately keep that in mind...Thanks!

    I also emmission tested my 08 just to know if it would pass since I'm going on a trip through Denver for a week next week. Surprisingly it did....must be the right tuning...cause it had just enough smoke to where they woulda called it a leaky DPF.... Like I say guys, Coal Rolling is what hurts...

    I can agree with you. My 300 horse tractors are in such an open area that is doesn't affect everyone unlike a city where there's a truck driving in front of your house ever 2 seconds.......the reality is that they're screwing us either way. I have also been to a few "pollution" meetings in the...

    I'll say it again...running the land to supply food/ingredients for our grocery store shelves does not come with a 401k or a $300,000 per year salary. I generally would leave my trucks stock...but when you have 80,000 in operating and you only got 75,000 back from what you had to sell and need...

    Keep in mind that China uses more coal than we do. If it means anything to you, I was considering going to biodiesel just for the risk of running equipment inside buildings etc....then they decided to raise the price 10 cents higher per gallon which when you go through 15,000 gallons per year...

    So you're telling me that 120,000 miles, how ever many thousands of gallons of diesel all fits into a little ash pan??????? It doesn't just vaporize...my 08 along with 5 other buddies' trucks all had a hint of soot in there tailpipes from the day they left the dealer. We all have our...

    I am very sorry about your family members. My grandfather died from working in a machine shop where he was exposed to welding fumes and gas fumes from small engines daily. My dad and I both work in diesel shops where we smell the stuff and breath it in daily. Dad is 68 and still going...
