Why doesnt have any low end power??

I have an 07' F250 4x4 AT 6.0 truck and have installed a 5" turbo back exhaust, S&B intake, SCT X3 programmer with the innovative diesel tunes. Every tune has no low end power. I was wondering if i made a bad combination or is this normal. My 7.3 had tons of low end power and not as much top end. Please give me some feedback.

Thanks,

Im under the impression that the 6.0 never really had much bottom end..my dad had a F350 dually a few years back and with a big load behind it it really didnt get things goin to it had built a few RPMs..of course that truck was stock though

The way I understand it is when you change the downpipe to a larger size, you will sacrifice/lose some low end power.

I have also seen different bar graphs that have different rpm spikes. Talk to innovative about your issue and see what they can do

The 6.0s dont seem to have very good off-idle power compared to a 7.3, my guess would be due to the displacement.

But with my custom tunes I get alot of power off-idle and really have to be careful not to break loose when taking off into traffic or something.

two completely different motors. The 7.3 was built for low end power and torque the 6.0 has more of a mid to high end power band. It has nothing to do with your set up its just how the 6.0 is.
