Youtube Powerstrokehelp (DUDE)

I'm new to the world of performance diesel. So like most i'm looking at anything to increase the performance of my 02 F250 I have done the BIG A$$ air filter change and a 4" MBRP but that's about all. I found the powerstrokehelp guy that has some ideas to increase fuel supply and something called Bigg boost? has anybody performed some of the stuff he has put on youtube? he sounds like he knows what he is talking about but I'm looking to make sure, I'm looking for better fuel mileage (my mileage is 14.2) and horse power, any ideas would help.

He's dumb. He has good videos on common problems but that's it.

All "Newbies" fall for that trap

He's called "Bill-The-BOOB" and although he Does have useful information on his site with some pretty good videos, the man is just So Full of ridiculous theories that it makes it all too clear his Total Lack of understanding should have everything he says Checked-Out with people who actually KNOW these engines (or even just Basic Mechanics.....)

btw, you're going to have to learn to live with that kind of mileage unless you drastically change the way you drive. Big engine, big cubes, heavy truck....

This maybe a dumb question but why would my mileage be 15 in the summer then drop to 14.2? I drive like a old man as it is so not much hot rod use. I use it as an everyday trans. p.s. thanks for the info.

The "Winter Blend" fuel contains up to 30% Kerosene. There is much less energy in Kero than Fuel so, Everybody's mileage drops.....

i have tried the bigg boost but heres my theory after using it it helps none unless you have fuel mods because you can feed a diesel all the air you want but if your not feeding it fuel your going no where so what you gain from using the bigg boost is 2-3 psi of boost that the computer is not aware of which means the computer will not add fuel to compensate for the boost someone please let me know where the holes in my theory are but in my experience my truck runs better without it

I have also seen most of his videos and was wondering the same, if he really knew his stuff or was just kind of blowing smoke. One thing I found interesting was his advice of changing out the oil from the HPOP reservior. Here is the video, he talks about it at around 4:40 and then there's a part 2.

Anyone else heard of this or think it is a good idea to do? In theory it seems to make sense to me.

It makes sense if you listen to him.
Go search that topic. Google, here, where ever. The HPOP reservoir is supplied by the LPOP. All the same oil.
Don't anyone start arguing it here. There's other threads for that.
I'm not saying do it or not. I'm saying the LPOP supplies the reservoir, the HPOP uses it, goes into injectors, out into VCs, then back into oil pan and where ever else it is supposed to go.

I wouldn't think that Ford/International would design it the way that he describes it in the video. Pretty convincing theory though but you're right, doesn't make sense if you stop to think about it.
