I got my truck back from the dealer tonight.

Brought it home and put the monitor I've had sitting on the table for 3 weeks to see what I can see. The good news is the deltas are 4-5* apart ....WOOT. The ICP pressure seems too be great. The FICM voltage never dropped below 48v. They fixed the oil leak, fixed the fan shroud, and replaced the injectors and stand pipe on the drivers side and did the blue spring update......unfortunately for me it's going back. Still bucks at slight load......99.9% sure the injectors on the other side are junk too. I questioned them on fuel pressure and they said it looked good. So tomorrow afternoon it will be dropped off for round 2. I paid $2500 for the warranty and I will suck them dry for every penny of it till its right

I tried to do that when I had 5/8 go bad at 98500, being 2nd owner of the truck they were already bad.

Got the 5 replaced under warranty told them I'd like to pay for the other 3, they said no way, and wouldn't do it..... I was amazed, but they wouldn't budge. Said something about can't do non warranty work when they are doing warranty, due to breaking down hours etc. I think they just didn't want to do anymore work on the truck lol.

I DID. They were only going to replace #2.....I bought the other 3 brand new on that side. They wouldn't go into the pass side cover. Now I am not going to help. They wanna be stupid and only do 1 on the pass side then they can replace them one at a time on their dime.

That's bullchit!! Even if u payed for the labour they should've worked around their "rules". I would've told them here's the injectors and check on their desk and told em I ain't picking up the truck till the work gets done! Can't stand these jack arses!!!

Well the flash is done. It's still there but not as bad. Just for snits and giggles I pulled the EGR valve and cleaned it up on the off chance it was a stuck EGR......nope. So it will be going back for another injector or 4. Sucks cause other than that I got it running nice. The cold start is finally really nice. 16* this morning and it fired right up. Wasn't plugged in and I don't think the motor turned 4 revolutions before it fired.
