I don't know the answer your looking for. But have a question, how are you changing fuel pressure when fuel pressure is mechanically operated.

A short duration, high lift cam wouldn't have a lopey idle, not that it has anything to do with making a diesel lope via tuning, but i figured i'd point that out anyways. "Lope" is nothing more than random misfires caused by valve overlap on a gas engine, so a long duration with tighter lobe separation is what causes the "lope", lift plays very little role in the idle characteristics of a camshaft. Anyways, sorry for the distraction, now back to your regularly scheduled program....

There are plenty 6.0s with a lope idle via tuning. Im well aware of cam characteristics. I changed injector pulse. Im a diesel tech not a tuner.

I have no idea what is needed to make a lope tune. Sorry.

Would you mind giving us some more information about the delta force tuning software? I have read about it on their website, but I would be interested to hear the thoughts of someone who has actually used it.
