could be completely normal. Tough to tell by your description.

Whats your fuel pressure?

Nonconformist. Functionality over bling.

My three rules for 7.3l troubleshooting: 1) Replace CPS and keep a spare. 2) Replace FPR and know your fuel pressure. 3) Hook it to a scanner and check for codes.

That's normal remember diesels have a lot of bottom end torque.. Unlike a gas job.. And don't run it if ya think you have a fuel pressure problem cuz you will kill you injectors.
