Foil Delete. what is it?

I lurk around here quite a bit, but don't really post much yet. I keep seeing "foil delete" in people's signature lines. What exactly is that?

I have an '06 F-350 Lariat 4x4 CC 6.0 w/ torqueshift and 3.73 rears. I have picked up a lot of good info on this site and I appreciate the input of the seasoned "rattler" owners. Mine is an early '06, I hope it's a good one. Hopefully by next spring I'll have an Edge Juice Platinum w/Attitude and a MBRP 4" turbo back exhaust. I can't imagine how well it will run with those mods as it will smoke the 20" tires well into 3rd gear in stock trim!

Thanks for your patience with a newby!

It's pulling the foil off the hot side I/C tube *nearest the air filter* so that it increases turbo noise.

It's there purely for sound reduction, nothing else.

Actually you have a 2006 so I don't even know if you would have the foil to delete lol ... it's not a performance mod, more of a "I like the sound of the turbo mod"

I'd suggest getting gauges, at least egt's since I believe your truck already has a stock boost gauge, and trans temp if you have an automagic tranny. If you have a standard trans, no need for the trans temp gauge.

Next, leave the intake alone since it's enough until you're talking about more power then a programmer will give you. If you get the exhaust, make sure you don't straight pipe it... the 6oh's do need some backpressure.

Gauges, chip, exhaust and you've got yourself 400+ hp... beee happpyyyy

I was thinking either keep the cat w/no muffler or dump the cat and use a muffler or power tube. I don't know about 400 hp but it would be fun to have a little more. I'm not looking to get really radical but just like everything else in this life, it will probably never be enough!

I like the Edge Attitude for all of it's readout capabilities and good looks. If I had a small fortune to waste I would go for the A2 since I really like the idea of having GPS navigation. For the money, it looks a little cheesy to me.

Thanks for the info!

What don't you know about 400 hp? A chipped 6.0 will easily go above that.

Don't believe me? This is this guys signature... and dynoed 422hp

400 hp is very easy on the 6.0L. The Innovative diesel custom SCTs we sell have been Dynod between 421 and 429 with just an AiRaid box and 4" Exhaust. Every truck is a little differant. Custom SCTs will give you the highest numbers for sure. Plus the best trans tuning.

I wasn't saying that I didn't believe 400 hp was easily possible, just that I may not be looking for that much at the rear wheels.

On the SCT, the write up on DPPI's webpage says something like "nearly eliminates puking radiator fluid". Is this a common problem with controllers on a powerstroke? I want a little extra power and better mpg, but I also want a truck that is 90%+ reliable. Maybe a tuner just isn't the way to go if your not into competition.

Also, I hooked up the upfitter high idle mod this afternoon. It's gonna be real sweet this winter! I really like the idea of having a 1200+ rpm idle mode. After 10 minutes, a short piece of wire and a couple of connectors I was in business. It really is easiest to remove the fuse box to get to the upfitter wires. At least it's better than standing on your head trying to reach up under the dash.
