No guts?

Should I have trouble towing 8k pounds, to the point where I could not get over 55 on flat land? Programmer turned off with intake and 4'' exhaust. It is an 00 F250 excab.

If you have gauges you can see what your trans temp is. But what I would do is unhook the trailer. Then go for a drive with the truck set up the same way. If you still have the problem then you have a drivetrain problem.

Is the engine running rough? I have to ask because it is possible to be an engine problem.

Sounds like something is wrong somewhere. Truck should have no issue with that weight.

I do have gauges and it was staying between 160 and 165. I had to take it to stock because my tranny was slipping to bad. Could a bad tranny cause it not to be able to build boost? I have a leaky uppipe also. It sounded like the stock wastegate was not able to hold, I could hear what I thought was it relieving continuesly whenever I hit the o/d button. Thanks

if your tranny is slipping sure it could cause the power transfer not to be able to work and thereforeee...sounds like its trans time.
