DieselOutlaw Gotcha like I said earlier I just assumed the file Iím running now was untouched at idle. what your saying makes sense now that youíve explained it. Iím sure there has been some adjustments at idle because of the non vgt turbo. Thanks for clearing that up.

Kind of apples-to-oranges....Not sure how the above matters in a conversation about idling the truck. Especially when your truck has been modded with a non-vgt turbo.

At idle sitting in the driveway...maybe not...until

...well cause maybe the file has been changed due to the non-vgt you installed.


Still your experiences and issues are related to the non-vgt turbo you installed. You need to think of that when sharing. Your mods/issues are quite a HUGE difference over most any situation people will have with a stock truck. Your engine tuning is different, as well as the transmission tuning.....it's all quite different.

DieselOutlaw Well Iím here to learn so youíll have to forgive my ignorance. I didnít figure that the file Iím running now would have anything adjusted from the stock file as far as idle goes. The Cummins and Volvo engines we put in big trucks donít have egr valves or coolers for anywhere other then America I work at an assembly plant on the engine line decking transmissions before the motors get set in the frame.

Yea....right.

So the turbo swap could be why it sounds like an older diesel or is it more the tuning?

Again as in all the other conversations....it's your tuning.

Thanks heavy you are correct. it does have a non vgt sxe64.5 and Itís tuned (Iím in Mexico the epa doesnít care about Mexico [emoji1787]) and doesnít run the way others have expressed it should or the way I expected it to. So the turbo swap could be why it sounds like an older diesel or is it more the tuning?

DieselOutlaw 6.7. what could be the issue? Truck runs fine after oil and water temps get to about 80 but before that it def sounds like a 7.3 in the cold.

CrazyS0b 6.7? You have some issues... Should fire right up run just fine........

I assume you are talking about a 6.0 or 7.3 though.

CrazyS0b Electronics my friend... The PCM adjusts fueling and everything else during warm up. The only real issue with a cold motor is the rate at which metals expand as they heat. That's why you drive easy till things start to heat up.

The people that are stuck in their ways will still do it. The way I look at is this... The faster I can get my truck out of a cold state and fully warmed up, the better. 2-3 min of idle time followed by a couple min on the freeway does it. By the time your 10 min of idle time is up, my truck is fully warmed up and im half way to work. Not only did you waste fuel idling, but your truck is burning more fuel while trying to get to temp now that you are driving... The goal is to minimize the total run time on the motor while cold, and idle time in the morning just extends the warm up process.
