6.0 powerstroke

I'm new to this forum but I found just hat I thought I would. Lots of people with 6.0 problems! My best advice would be to return the tuner to factory default settings and leave them there. Replace the EGR with a good aftermarket one.

Are you the guys who post all over craigslist??

If you want to peddle your wares, try signing up to be a sponsor. By the way, nice advising everyone who has a slight motor problem to have you guys rebuild it. Way to build a solid reputation 'round here.

Why return the 6.0 to stock settings? What's wrong with tuned?
Since you are such a large shop also, I'm curious how the Black Onyx HG's have worked for your customers too.

We re-manfacture engines that need major work done. Most have burnt pistons and broken valves. About 20% of them have bad cam shafts from a lifter problem. About half have been detroyed because someone had their tuner set incorrectly and ran the engine so hot that they burned up their pistons. We've seen some come in that had gotten so hot that the rods were brittle and we had to scrap the whole core.
Yes we have advertised on Craigslist in some areas as well as on ebay but most of our business comes from Diesel Engine Trader and from our own web site. I stopped here to see if there were any nice people who might need help. Purchasing an ad might come depending upon the type of communication and reception that I get. I tend to support people who I like.

um no. if you want a reliable BORING truck, yes do that. But theres many mods out there with more power thats just as reliable to do. So stock is like so 1950.

That means about half the people out there need information about tuning. Not to run it stock. But to be told they NEED to have gauges while tuning.
We aren't trying to run you off, but you do come onto a forum that is heavy into modding and tuning properly saying the we shouldn't tune and stock is best. If you had prefaced the OP with what I put into red, it would've been received better.

Also, be sure to post in the right forum next time. 911 is for people who are in dire need of help. 6.0 general discussion woulda been a better choice for you.
