Whats the deal?

A buddy of mine rode in my truck for the first time today. He said that my truck should be faster than it is? He has a 97' Ford diesel, and a 03' Duramax, and he says my truck is way slower than both of his trucks! I can see the Duramax being faster, but whats going on with the 97' Ford? He has 230,000 on that truck & 35" tires. I dont really have anything to gauge my truck against, and this is my first diesel, so I dont really know how it should perform. My truck is stock, with the exception of an intake,
lift kit & 35" tires, but I do plan on getting a TW chip & a 5" straight pipe exhaust. I want to make sure my truck is right before I try to upgade it, what should I be looking at?

Tymar intake, TW chip, ITP boost fooler, HP X-over line, single 6" miter stack with slip in muffler, JW valve body, wicked wheel, 6.5" Pro Comp lift, Pro Comp traction bars, Motometal wheels, 37 x 13.50 Dick Cepek Mud Country's, Autometer gauges in quad pillar pod, Garmin GPS

well not knowing exactly what your truck is , makes a big difference , i dont see his 97 being fast either, i can see the dmax hauling the mail, if you arent running a chip and running 35's , i dont see it being very fast myself , get soem goodies and then show him

How much weight is on the truck? Do you have any of your welding gear in the bed?

Check the boots on the turbo, intercooler and intakes, if there is oil around them remove them all clean really good with brake cleaner and put them back on, make sure they are tight.

I always have between 400 & 1200 lbs on board, depending on if I'm carrying a welder, or not. On this particular day, I did not have the welder on. I know it is slowing me down a little, but enough to make a 97' be faster than me?

So your the man, huh? I feel like I'm talking to a celebrity! Whats the current lead time on getting one of your chips?

I just did the 10K mod, and it definently helped! Not very scientific, but before I did it, I counted my 0 - 60 time, and it was about 15 seconds. After the mod, I did it again, and came up with 11 seconds! I might be off a little on my counting, but I can't imagine I'm a whole 4 seconds off, so I am happy with that. I am going to try to put the FPR shim back in also. I took it out because I kept blowing the O ring out of the fuel filter, but have since stopped using the junk a$$ Motorcraft filters & switched to the Purolators which come with the new cap, and have had good luck so far.

The FPR Shim will do nothing for your HP... But did you check the pressure after you did it? The only time I see people blowing the O rings is when they shim it above 80-90 PSI... 72 is fine, any more your just over working the pump and not helping anything.
