A few bugs in my 6oh to get out

Hi guys pretty new here have a few bugs I'm trying to work out of my 6oh long cranks. Egt of 500 at idle 900 at 50mph no load on truck almost instant 1200 at wot. Have purchased and ran auto enginuity. Here's what I find. Ficm 47.5-48.5 never outside of this from what I read this is good. Icp I think something screwy here turn key on 10 then jumps to 700 sometimes half a second before fire sometimes half a second after fire wot it climbs to 3000 instantly I think it should be 0 without engine cranking then climb not jump am I correct. Exhaust back pressure 15 at idle under full load it goes to 45 here another screwy sensor koeo reads 10 pounds Are these sensors sticking is that common or do I have other issues thanxs.

The tubes on the EBP sensor can and do get clogged. This could be the cause for the high EGT's at idle too. The ICP, I wouldn't sweat it. I don't know for sure, but I'm guessing there's a check valve to keep pressure up. Maybe I'll check mine tonight to see what the ICP looks like before I crank it over, to verify. When you say long cranks, how long are we talking, 10 seconds, or 5?

Sorry still working on getting to know all the terms ebp? It cranks for probably 15-20 seconds every time. Hot or cold doesn't matter. Already tried two new batteries. Temps also not affected by what my edge is set on and neither is boost I get about 27 boost out of it

EBP tubes clog more common on the 7.3 than the 6.0. I pulled my EBP to clean it at 100,000miles, and it was clean, no soot build up at all! Then i could not get the damn threaded part of the tube threaded back into the threaded nipple on the xhaust manifold, had to buy a new tube !
If i had to do it again, i would remove the sensor, clean sensor if necessary, look in the tube with a flashlight, clean it if necessary, all the time keeping the tube threaded into the xhaust nipple, then re-install ebp sensor.

Exhaust Back Pressure

You should check the FICM voltage manually, with a meter. I have the AE too, and I don't think it reads the voltage fast enough to tell me the FICM is ok. You check the votage while someone cranks the truck. There should be a procedure int eh tech section somewhere. LMK if you can't find it, and I'll see what I can find for you

I just brought that up because Evil Eye had an issue with a clogged one (ended up being something else causing the high EGT's). I didn't know the 6.0's weren't as prone to that issue though, good to know

Any weird unusual symptoms I would start by disconnecting the Egde Attitude. Those hard wired modules under the hood are a huge cause of drivability problems in these trucks.

You could try disconnecting the Edge to see if the problem persists. It's may not be the cause, but it's worth a shot, and it's easy to do
