Doing some mods, what am i forgetting?...
First of all, i've been doing a lot of research & reading on here & appreciate all the info to be had. I haven't posted anything yet, but since most of my upgrade parts have been shipped, i wanted some opinions on my setup before i start the install...
My truck is a '01 F350 2wd Auto, Crew Cab LWB Dually. Currently stock except for Bully Dog 6-position chip, ebay k&n style intake, stock 3" downpipe & 3.5" straight exhaust.
Got 204k miles on her, has some type of trailer behind it 75% of the time. Been losing power & hard to start recently, so had my buddy check it & showed 2 bad injectors on computer & all but a couple sounded weak during the "buzz test". All 8 holes had between 400 to 420 psi on compression test. Only other code that i remember was from EBV sensor. Probably clogged line, as i've never cleaned it. Intake tubes were oily so we were thinking turbo seals possibly leaking, but now realize it was probably the ccv dumping oil residue. Some wear on turbo wheel too.
So i figured it was time to do some maintenance & upgrades. I replaced glow plugs, valve cover gaskets & injector wiring harnesses. All but 2 injectors sounded weak during test again & all 4 on passenger side barely made a difference unplugging the wire with engine running & cold. So I decided to dig deep in my shallow pockets & throw some parts at it...
So here's what i have and/or have ordered...
-Industrial Injection Stage 1 split shots
-Garrett 38R turbo
-EBV delete turbo pedestal & turbo outlet
-Flo-Pro 4" downpipe, 5" straight from there back
-Riff Raff Intake kit
-Bully Dog "Watchdog" digital gauge/ diagnostic setup
-AIH delete plug & sensors
-Riff Raff regulated return fuel kit (not sure what psi spring i need to install)
Also plan on the diy in-tank mod, foil delete on boost pipe, diy ccv mod. Had my radiator cleaned & cleaned out my stock intercooler.
Would like to upgrade my trans cooler as well, 6.0 cooler or large aftermarket one?
I know many on here will tell me to throw the Bully Dog in the trash & get a custom tuned TS chip. I may do that later, but trying to keep my priorities ($) under the hood first.
Is there anything i am looking over or need to re-think?...
What do i need to do about boost control? Boost fooler? Wastegate controller?...
