Help me diagnose - noise

Ok guys, the truck has no balls...
Trouble towing...
Trouble having balls....

Details:
1.) 2002 F350, ~165K miles
2.) just changed tranny fluid
3.) mods in Signature
4.) towing ~6.7K lb boat.

Symptoms:
1.) Loud noise, sounds like "noise", no whine, it sounds like a huge fan is blowing....hard to describe.
1.1) Loud noise is also noticeable when I put the pedal down when not towing.
2.) my Edge Juice is pulling out the tune.
3.) EGT's around 1000-1100 F (which is hotter than normal) and I can barely hold 65 mph going up hill...used to be able to hit it at 75 no problem.
4.) Turbo Surging pretty badly, I can hear it making a loud buzzing noise.
NOTE: symptoms 2,3,4 seem to only happen when towing.

Hypothesis:
Torque converter is going....

What do you guys think?

If it was trans your RPM's would shoot up.
Get rid of that Edge, they are notorious for destroying transmissions in the 4R100's.

I know I know, canned tunes are bad.

I want to know what the problem is, me taking the edge off isnt going to magically make everything all better.

Just remove it and see what happens, you might be surprised.

Check your rubber boots holding the charge air cooler tubes, see if one of them is punctured or blown.

I have been running this tuner since before you were even a member, pulling it off WILL NOT magically solve the aforementioned problems.

Lol. That's funny. But I've been wrenching on diesels for a lot longer than I've been on here. Just not Powerstrokes. :thumbup:

pardon my frustration, and my obvious forum rage, but hear me out... Lets just assume that this issue is a result of the long term use of the edge tuner, simply removing it will not reverse 6 years of damage.

My issue manifested itself in the last 2 months, what all of a sudden changed that could possibly be "un changed" by removing the tuner?

Also, my understanding is that when in the "zero" stock tune, the tuner does not do anything but monitor and defuel if conditions are met... am I wrong here? If im not, why would running the truck in the stock tune still produce the same problem?... because it does?

I agree with your diagnosis. Sounds like you already have it figured out. If you have a trusted transmission shop take it there and have them pull codes. It will show slippage and other issues. At least you will be able to confirm that part either way.
