Exclamation H&S / Map Sensor HELP ASAP, PLEASE

Ok, since I wiped my signature clean because of the C@ck eating EPA, I will give you a quick update to my problem(s) and my questions.

I have been running my 250 tune with the S1M tranny tune for about 30,000 trouble free miles. Today on my way to work my check engine light came on and after a scan I found two codes, P2563 & P006B. I brought it to my local Ford dealer and they put a new Map Sensor in and everything was cool. Yes, I have a great relationship with them....The owners son is the service manager, and his is a good friend (Thank god).

Now, my problem / question. The truck runs great and no more codes. I beat the p!ss out of it tonight to double check . However, now I do not roll any coal? Before when I would pound on it, the thing would roll.

BEFORE you all slam me....I DO NOT roll coal unless I'm racing someone! I am just as p!ssed as you guys are about the C@ck eating EPA, and the people who have given diesels a bad rap. My question is how and where did the smoke go? I'm running my LBF on 4? I'm so confused?

Let me hear it boys.

Thanks!
Turbo Kidd

You're truck is now correctly reading the air input, which would result in the correct amount of fuel to match the amount of air.

Honestly, the LBF settings have no effect on power output. I would run it on 0 for the cleanest and most efficient burn. I would also recommend updating your tuner to the .47 update. Even when racing, your truck shouldn't be "rolling coal." Ideally, you would want a VERY light haze at WOT, and these trucks are very capable of running smoke free.

Thanks, you confirmed what I was thinking. I also could not agree with you more on cleaning up my / our tunes. Fast is fast, no need for smoke. I know we can't put SH!T back on the Donkey, but I wish I / we all would have realized this about 10 years ago.....maybe the tunes out there wouldn't have come under the eyes of the C@CK eating EPA?

Unfortunately, idiots will be idiots. There will always be somebody to ruin the fun.

Amen. I will admit, back in the late 1990's and early 2000's I was rolling coal, most of us were. However, we all learned that our ways must change. I don't want to waste any fuel.....I want it to burn and make efficient power.

Anyone else want to chime in and either verify what SickStroke6.0 and I are thinking, or toss other ideas my way?

Thanks,
Turbo Kidd

I think sickstroke is correct. With the new map sensor the truck is adding the correct amount of fuel for the airflow. The less smoke the better and the more power it makes.

Thanks 04hdfatboy....

I do like having less smoke. Maybe, my fuel economy will get a little better too? In any case, my next step is to update my Mini to the lastest update. I have been waiting to do it, but I have not updated my tuner since I installed it. I'm still on .32 I just hope I don't regret updating....based on others' claims of high boost numbers.
