6.0 is CHUGGING like GASSER

My 6.0 is chugging diesel like it was gas. My 7.3 didnt suck this much down. It will chug most of the time and seem really fuel efficient some times. I dont drive it hard, im usually at no higher than 2k rpm. I have a 4'' turbo back exhaust from MBRP and a air filter delete so Its breathing like a champ but im not seeing any gain in MPG, on the contrary.

If you have no air filter pretty soon you may have the motor delete mod as well

You're not serious, Right?

No filter equals no turbo real quick.

Put the dang filter back in, NOW

As mentioned PUT THE STINKING AIR FILTER BACK IN, or risk "dusting" your compressor wheel

As for the chugging, what does your boost do during the chugging? Does it have the same range as it does when it's running good? Could be sticking vanes, does it belch black smoke at all when acting up?

6.0's NEED to be driven hard from time to time, to keep the EGR system and turbo vanes clear of soot buildup.
