was the dp to much?

so ever since i put the tuner in my 02 f350 its been a down hill race. the only thing that was really got me going was when i first installed like the day after i did beat a honda civic si.

slowly after that my clutch wasn't able to hold up to the 140hp then eventually the 60hp eco setting for the ford that has nearly 200xxx miles on it. that was the first hick up on it then, my oil pump was acting up on it so i put a adrenaline in it ran right for 2 days then i pushed the truck to 115mph when i hit that speed my check engine light came on and the truck would barley make it up hills and barley start off in bull low gear i actually had to a few times had to give it some pedal power and then let the clutch out slowly so it sounds like i am riding the clutch to get er going. plus a ruff start

heard things that could be wrong with it like-

timing could of jumped
gummed injector
injector could be FxxxED
something with the oil pump could of gone bad(have changed the IPR and check for oil bubbles)

now it is in the ford dealship getting a full diagnostics done to it to see whats really wrong with it...

so was the dp over kill for it, or i just got a tired truck?

those issues was mot likly there u just didn't know about them till up upped the hp, sounds like a common issue with 200k+ miles. let us know what ford says, my guess is inj cause you changed the HPOP and that put even more pressure on the inj's. if ur in colorado I am sure we could find a few guys that would help replace them with yea lol

just a heads up, IMHO the Ford dealer isnt the first place i would go. id hit an independent diesel shop or a performance shop. too many dealer trouble stories. most of the time they jump at injectors or hpop beign problems. and most are espicially not aware of performance upgrades and i would be worried about mis-diagnosis.

What else is done to your truck? If I had mine up to 115 at full throttle, my egts would probably be through the roof...

well i got a phone call back today and they said that it was a ICP sensor that needs to be replaced(but have tried the unplugging trick and nothing changed).... so they didnt screw me that bad yet....
all i have done to my truck is a banks ram air, wikit wheel, dp tuner with the 140 setting and 4intch turbo back with a magnaflo exhuast. and my egt where at like 1100 or less.. never anything more and thats the prob in the down pipe.

so its that how to tell that i have 3:73 lol

1100 in the downpipe may not be good. 1100 pre turbo = OK.
