So.. after reading the two previous posts I go out to start the truck. It was not plugged in and the ECT read 32 on my insight. Truck popped right off but was a bit rough which it has never been before. That puts truth to the inductive heating theory. I'm not too worried about it.
I use a tank a week. After the new wears off of it I'll post up some mileage numbers. Prior to FICM tuning I was doing 15.1-15.4 MPG back and forth to work currently and slightly better in the summer. I guess maybe the blend and the fact that it will sit outside on high idle for 5-10 minutes before I leave right now. I keep very good fuel records so mine will be almost scientific.
Truck felt like a fire breathing monster when I left last night.....but it may be because I was still so pumped from an awesome day. Once again, when the new wears off I'll report back.
Bill determined my "stock" truck wasn't stock. He assumed it had a 60-70 horse tow tune in it. My torque jumped by 15 in the max catagory and on average was up by 28. My horsepower jumped by 13 in the max catagory and on average was up by 12. The average of 28 more ft-lbs is well worth the $100 spent. I can't remember who but I believe it was Wed, we both agreed we had spent more and got less on other vehicles and in some cases slowed them down.
I know the sheet is hard to read once scanned so here are the numbers.
HP before tune 352, after tune 365.
TQ before tune 639, after tune 654.
I am pleased with my stock truck..no really, I haven't done anything to it.
The one I am amazed at is Bingo's truck. That truck really came to life with a tune and a sketchy air filter. I can't wait to see the flak Chris gets when he posts up "stock air filters kill power on 6.0 Ford".
No jokes about the poorman's scanner...I'm having technical difficulties this morning.
