Hole in fuel tank = watered system!
My 05 6.0 has been in the shop for about amonth. truck would act like it wqs gelling up every other day or so til it happened 3 times, last time it wouldn't start. Fuel tank had ruptured on top, and was letting dirt and water in slowly... killed my fuel pressure regulator. also replaced fuel pump/water sep, new fuel tank, FPR, water pump. got it back and immediately I noticed it has a slight miss to it at idle and highway speeds. I have a local shop put scanner on it came up with: (cant remember actual code numbers)
EGR codes (which it is deleted so I expect that)
Low exhaust backpressure (I have straight pipe so not sure if this matters?)
I had a chip on it for about 3 weeks and sold it other than that it has straight pipe, intake cai, coolant filter and egr delete.
I do not have a good scan tool nor do I really know anyone who has.
To add to this, I can only make 19-20lbs of boost and any giving situation. turbo fluctuates sounds a lot like vanes are opening and closing while the truck sits ideling. any help would be appreciated!!! Im figuring on replacing 1 injector and installing 03 turbo.
