So I bought a Quadzilla Xzilleraider XZT 65 hp module from here on the forum! So thrilled - got a killer deal! Got home and started the install - all went well until... the ICP sensor
I called Quadzilla - talked to the tech - he assured me - just like the instruction manual said - on the '03 (what I have - '03 6.0) laying on your back - under the engine - remove 3 bolts and the ICP sensor is right there - well - laying on my back - no where on the engine under, above, around, sides - anywhere is a 6" plate with 3 bolts!
So on Saturday - I went to Trick Trucks in Waldorf - they didnt know either and tried to get me to swap to a Banks system.
I said no.
I then called a buddy of mine that works at Waldorf Ford - he said that sensor is nearly under the turbo and is a big deal to get to - not to mention how hot the engine is - have to wait for the engine to cool before attempting - and by the way - there was a recall on the ICP sensor - did you know? (nope).
So now at work - still with my Quadzilla half installed (and Q Tech promissing me that no harm is being done to my truck without the module and partial install complete - honestly its driving fine) - what now? Wait another week before my buddy can tear half my engine appart just to get to the ICP - now for recall and for the Quadzilla?
Is this 65hp Quadzilla going to be worth the headache? Trick Trucks says that Q is the only manufacturer he knows that even fools with the ICP - most dont? Is that true? Why Qualdzilla then if so?
What was a great deal on a user installable system is becoming an expensive headache! (Not by any means fault of the one that sold it to me - the customer relation was bar none excellent)
My question now is do I just sell it to another Powerstroker with hopefully more mechanical capability then I and buy a different tuner or should I complete the install on this one? I'm not looking for 200hp boost - 65 is fine with me - but the trouble - becoming a bother.
