good to open it up?

i was wondering is it good to open your truck up all the way every now and then. i know on gas motors they tell you to get in to it just to blow the build up out and opens the injectors all the way too. thanks

My skinny pedal seems to go to the floor on its own everytime i drive mine As for your question yes go ahead and open her up. You might be surprized if you just always putt around it might run better after a good day of hard driving lol.

DO NOT OPEN HER UP! What ever you do, do not put a huge grin on your face and open her up and feel the power and say things such as (but not limited to); "hot damn", "yeah!", "look at that smoke", "ain't she quick", and "yeah, it's a powerstroke". sorry gotta joke around a little
