Tearing it down for upgrades early
Well I hadn't planned on tearing the truck down for any mods until I graduated college, but as we all know plans change. Two weeks ago the truck shutdown while running 55mph. The RPM's just started dropping slowly and stalled. A friend of mine picked up the truck and has diagnosed it. He owns a diesel performance shop in Tuscaloosa. The HPOP needs replacing, 3 injectors are reading bad, and 4 glowplugs.
So we have almost nailed out our plan of action, and I would like some feedback from you fellow 6.0 guys. I have been digging thru the searches and researching how I wanted to proceed. These are my thought's.
Warren 175/75 or Warren 190/75s injectors
Adrenaline HPOP or OEM HPOP (can't find much info on the adrenaline pumps)
Driven Diesel regulated fuel return
SCT livewire with tunes from TSD and an analog fuel pressure gauge
Sinister Coolant filtration system
and then this summer:
FueLab pump with inline filters
FICM tuning (undecided on which one)
Stage 2 or 3 turbo
The truck is my DD and I drive nearly 175 miles round trip per day. Also, 6 months out of the year it hauls a 7x14 enclosed trailer and landscaping equipment combined weight of around 5,000lbs and a few times a month I tow roughly 8,500lbs. I am scared that the injectors may be to hot to tow with even with the fuel being pulled back. What is everyone's thoughts? Oh and I am at sea level and summer temps range from 95 to 105 with extremely high humidity.
