I'm not trying to bust your chops, if you want an outside opinion to consider before you want to recommend this shop to anyone else.
I want to say it was like $300-$500...honestly I don't remember. I actually wanted it, and they talked me out of it. If I recall, it was around $1,500 for the delete and tune. Once again, I dont remember as it's been a while. It was never about the money...I just wanted good work done.

I am not recommending them, but rather they were recommended by a few guys I spoke to.

Let's see what happens and if I end up taking it back there or to another shop...If I can find a good one.

I'm willing to bet they bought tunes for his truck through one of the few that tune 6.7's, charged him an extra 300-500 and said it was their tune. Then kept the device.

Fair enough. Just let us know how it goes. We all want people to be happy with their trucks regardless of the "who, what, and how" details. Good luck.

Yep. Anything "5 stage" sounds like a SOTF setup.

Ok, so I got my truck back...no light for fuel pressure yet after about 4 miles of driving. I turned the key to on position and heard the pump. I let it run till it stopped. I then turned the key off and then back to on again and didn’t hear it again. I did this about 6 times and it never came back on.

Just drove the truck about 1 more mile and turned it off. Put the key back to on position and I hear it again....but it’s not stopping after 2 minutes straight

Do you mean you cycled the key to On, let it run till it stopped (after 30 seconds), then cycled the key off, then cycled to ON at least 4x.....for a total of two minutes of run time??


The lower fuel pump will only run for 30 seconds at a time when cycled to ON.



After all that if you still hear noise, I'd suggest checking the filter connections and housing.

Was on my phone so wasn't too clear...

Cycled key to on and let it run till it stopped (30 seconds)...did this at least 4x and didnt hear anything.

Went to the gym and when I got there I did it again...this time it ran for a long time (I should've timed it, but felt like 2 min).


Let's fast forward to this morning....before leaving to work I go through this again.

Key to on position - 30 seconds of it running and then it stopped. I did this 5x and each time it ran for 28 seconds exactly. I had to eventually stop because I needed to leave to work.

The fact that this is happening...does that mean I have air in the system? Like you mentioned, possibly the filter connections or housing?

Yes you are losing fuel out of your system as it sits which means thereís a air leak somewhere like stated before check connections in upper fuel filter(remove and reinstall making sure they snap on good) then check the lower filter to make sure itís tight and the seal isnít damaged or rolled over.
