A Few Questions on Driveability..
I have been reading a lot of post lately, There is unlimited knowledge on this site I just cannot find the direct answer I'm looking for.
My Vehicle, 2003 F250 7.3l, Auto, 4x4, 87K miles, 4 Exhaust, open Intake, I Run Lucas and Diesel clean in fuel.
#1. I would like to have a bit better throttle responce Off idle. My 7.3 is a bit sluggish until about 1400-1500rpm and the turbo gets going. I have heard That banks makes a Quick Turbo that is suspose to help this. Is there another one by some one else that will solve the slow start? I know is a diesel not a hot rod. Just I have drive a 2006 dodge 5.9l and holy crap I just touch the throttle and the tires were rolling. I want the same thing.
#2 I bought a Scorpion Tuner( I know there are better tuners) to try out, I didn't want to spend 400-500 bucks on a tuner and not get the desired outcome. With the Tuner I have it like driving a 2 stroke truck. The power comes on quick about 1500rpm but still nothing below that.
I may be asking to much from my Truck, I'm not looking for a Drag Truck. I have a 10,000lb boat and it pulls it just fine even stock, I just drove that darn Dodge and want the same throttle responce form 700-3200. I had a 4" exhaust and open intake also, No chip just the H.O. 5.9l cummins.
Thanks for the help. There are so many parts. I'm willing to spend the money to get it right I just don't want my truck undriveable.
