took the rig in for a egr delete and found some bad things...

ok, so i got a nice egr delete kit from custom-diesel.com and needed to have it put on. i would do it myself, but iv never messed with it. so that being said, my buddies friend (diesel mechanic) said he would install the egr delete, clean out my turbo and hook up his computer to see if anythings wrong... everything went smooth till he hooked the computer up.. turns out cylinder 2 & 3 injectors dont even start working untill the engine gets up to 120 degrees... also my ficm drops to 46.5v everynow and then. so that being said, i went ahead and had both injectors replaced, and a new ficm is in the near future. just wanted to share my story with everyone here.

Check out ficm repair.com. Make sure your running a good quality oil, alot of us use rotella t6. Make sure your running motorcraft or racor filters and matching caps. It would be a good idea, to check your fuel pressure also, if you are not sure whether you have the updated blue fpr spring. Your injectors will thank you for all this. Get a monitor and coolant filter on that truck too.

My FICM hit 46.5 on occasion for about 1 second. It is still ok. Once it was on 46.5 consistently I will swap

I wouldn't worry about the FICM unless it drops below 45V. Mine used to drop to 33V so I pulled it and did the solder reflow to the power supply board inside. Now it sits between 47.5-49V at all times (Key on, engine off; key on cranking; and key on, engine on). That FICM was one swapped out because of a no start condition under warranty in 2008, btw.
