I am having some issue and need advice. I have a 2006 F-350 and have made some mods and am not getting the gains I expected.Let me start from the beginning.
Truck was stock for a while then decided to get more power, installed an Edge Juice Platinum with Attitude , Magnaflow 4" full exhaust and K&N intake. The truck ran amazing, the acceleration was greatly improved , good smoke and overall I was very pleased.
About a month later while driving the turbo shaft snapped. well I am firm believer that when something breaks, go bigger and better. I bought a BD thruster turbo, it came with a boost builder and VGT fooler.
Well the first issue I had was excessive black smoke out the exhaust, with the stock unit it used to smoke, but this was huge, like a D9 tractor. Next it started throwing codes. Turbo under boost, FICM low volatge. I replaced the EGR as it was completely blocked, and disconnected the boost builder. This solved the smoking.
I am still getting P0299- Turbocharger underboost and the truck has no acceleration now, the low end is horrible. The truck doesn't get going till around 2600rpm, and really gets going after it up shifts to 2nd.
My boost according to the Edge is 26psi max and EGTs are between 100-1200 degrees. my 0-60 times have gained 2-3 secs since swapping turbos.
I am now at my wits end, can anyone advise me where to go from here, i love the truck and want to have my performance. I was told that the Edge cannot work t=with this turbo and I need to ditch it for an SCT?
