Got some questions..
So ive got swamps 175/146 injectors and tuning. 6 speed truck. Its not fast. Lol my brothers stock 96 with a tune whoops me in a race. Figured it was because hes an automatic, doesnt loose boost on shifts and can launch with some boost. (At least alot easier than I can)
Well now ive got a truck to compare to.

Its identical except its a 4 door long bed.
Driving It feels way more powerful than mine. The only thing I have found different is that he has the wastegate solenoid and vacuum lines still but I dont.

Ive never had much problem towing but id like to figure out whats up with this. Any ideas?

Im not saying a 16 year old diesel should be a race truck but just in comparison, if my motor is healthy I should be quicker.

A tuned 96 7.3 is about 230-250hp at the wheels. Your truck with 175/0 should be 350-370hp.

Sounds like you need to check hpop duty cycle and pressures. Also check fuel pressure and for boost leaks

I dont have any boost leaks, she makes plenty of it. What should my hpop numbers be at?
