Finally think we have found the culprit for my issues with the truck after H&S instal

So after the local ford dealer couldnt figure out the issues and said everything was "fine". took the truck to Rudy's diesel in Durham (3hr drive). They first ripped the DPF off and tossed the 5'' exhaust that I had sitting in the back seat to rule out that the DPF was clogged up.. after they did that they were able to see that the truck was having issues with the Low pressure pump. Now comes the waiting game for approval from my extended warranty company so they can order the new pump and get it installed on the truck. overall I am happy so far even though I have been without a truck for 3 weeks over the past month (2 weeks at ford and now 1 week at rudys). Hopefully they will have it on the road next week (mon/tues is what I am hoping for as I need it to get to my VA appointments.) Was tempted to just have them do a Airdog but david their service manager said that I will have more issues with the Airdog than I would a OEM (oem is around 530.00 airdog is around 700+labor). I am sure I have been a bit annoying calling in each day to find out if they found any issues. and now I am sorta doing the same just to help if at all possible with the warranty claim. So David and the staff of Rudy's I do apologize for being annoying I just need this truck to get to medical appointments can get a bit frustrating especially after only having the truck for 3 months and putting 6K miles on it.

So for those who need work done I do recommend Rudy's as they are able to find those issues that a lot of ford techs are too lazy to really dig deep into.

just got the call from rudy's.... sadly the LP pump was not a fix for the issues. it helped but its still seeing fuel drop.... hopefully its something else simple as I need the truck back for work but it looks like that may not be the case. this is now the 4th time the truck has been to a shop (first 3 were the ford dealership and they said its "working as intended" and didnt really do anything to it... rudy's has since replaced the DPF, Low pressure pump and it helped a bit but its still falling on its face). Hopefully its not the HPFP and injectors because thats another huge downtime + the worries of my warranty company saying sorry not going to pay as we have already replaced xxx amount of dollars in work on this truck. crossing my fingers

OK thanks man.. sorry to make you repeat if you already posted...

Question though, were you having the same issue before the install of the DPF delete and tuner? The reason I ask, is I saw and had the same thing happen with the H&S on, but when removed and put back to "stock" with stock exhaust there were no problems.

yes only occurred with the tuner on even before the dpf delete. the thing rudys and H&S is saying is that with even the stock tune on the H&S it bumps the power up a bit and this can show the fuel drop issue

Just talked to Rudy's... HPFP failed as well hopefully warranty company covers it if not truck will be traded in as I can't afford a 4k repair bill on a very fixed salary
