p0266 code, rough idle
Got my friend's 08 F450 up and running again....after 39k and a year of sitting...yeah lots of fun. The truck only has 80k on it and its on its 2nd short block, 3rd set of turbos and now thanks to a POS ATS converter it now has a full billet transmission. Anyway sorry had to rant a little as this thing has driven me nuts for over a year now. Went down updated Mini Maxx, got trans dialed in everything is going great....Truck pulls like a damn freight train. Full throttle pulls good bye rear tires. Get back home and friend calls me now its throwing a p0266 code along with one other one. It's idling like crap, sounds like its pinging when he takes off from the line, but then once he's rolling all is well. It has a completely new injection system, dual k16's, 8 brand new injectors with 120hp nozzles, ported rails etc....basically take just about everything in the Elite Diesel catalog regarding injection and thats whats on it. I've heard 6.4's have issues with the harness (sounds familiar with the 7.3's and 6.0's...you think they would learn.) hoping that that is all it is. Anyone else have this issue pop up on their 6.4 and what did it take to remedy it. If it wasn't such a nice and insanely fast, for a 450, truck i'd tell him to just get rid of the damn thing as its been nothing but a headache and a money pit. But since he's well over 100k invested in it, I don't think its going away anytime soon. Any insight would help guys and gals. Thanks!
