Shes become a gutless wonder

I just replaced the high pressure pump and did a test on the injectors and they all come back fine. My truck struggles to get down the road. It just sounds flat. Could use some help. Its a 96 f350 with 177,000 that I bought new. Just thought it was getting worn until I rode in a friends with over 250 on his both being completly stock. His sounds crisp and plenty of power for a lack of a better way to discribe it.

Sounds like your truck needs some TLC. I would pull the fuel bowl and do new o-rings, new UVCH, new valve cover gaskets, air filter, oil change, fpr mod and check fuel pressure as well as a start.

A lot of that is unnecessary. Do an oil change if you haven't recently. replace all filters. Clean the FPR screen. Check fuel pressure. what HPOP did you put in the truck?

So you just replace the HPOP for the heck of it?
White is right. And even then, that's throwing parts at it.
TEST THINGS!
Could be the UVCH, fuel pressure, ICP, IPR, fuel pump, FPR, etc.

most of those things will cause rough running. it sounds like it runs fine, just gutless.

Thanks for the replys. Not sure what valves are what. the mechanic replaced the valve that under the fuel bowl. He did a buzz test on the injectors and what ever other scans it ran. they are using a snapon scanner. Does the dealer have a better scanner or a scanner that will read some thing the others wont read? It does have a small miss when starting from a stop but cleans up as the rpms come up. They change the fuel filter too. When its cold it will barley move and misses real bad until it warms up even with the new pump. As far as the oil and basic maintenance there is nothing that hasn't been kept up on. I bought the truck new so I knew the history ot the truck. Its been a great truck a couple of transmissions 2 cam senors a water pump and a starter. Not bad for a service truck that has been loaded from day one

Are you asking if its a high out put or brand name. Im assuming a stock replacement. I also replaced the valve cover gaskets last year pulled both tanks and cleaned them.

What's your fuel pressure like? Did they run a cylinder contribution test?

not sure what it was but it shut down each cylinder at a time as it was running. They were using a snap on scanner. Fuel pressure I don't know
