  1. General 6.0L Discussion
    ok, had something interesting happen on a little project I created. I'm running warren 175/0 injectors with a powermax and srl+. With a 10 year old blue spring I checked fuel pressure with a mechanical gauge at the test port and got 61 at idle and 40 or less at wot. Had the old original hfcm...
  2. 6.7 Motor Problems (2011-2016)
    I'm sorry in advance as this may be a dumb question. I let my 2013 6.7 get down to 12 miles until E. I went to go to get fuel the next day and the truck wont start and i'm getting p2291 code on my ngauge. I've read everywhere that this is a common issue many people have, i've even read that many...

    Has anyone had problems with the fuel injection pressure sensor? Mine started to spray out fuel. I put a new one in. It started to spray as well after 5 minutes of driving! Part number is Cm5235. What does this sensor do? Can I plug it off and run without it?

    Hey everyone out there that might have an idea. I have a 2011 powerstroke that currently will start and run really well for about 1/2 mile and then it falls on its face. It will die and get a P0193 code. The 2 pin connector to the FPR has been arced across twice now and replaced both times...

    Installed a Glowshift fuel pressure gauge a few weeks ago. Pressure read fairly consistent, but dropped pretty sharply to about 20psi or so at WOT. Installed a Blue Spring update. Pressure came up to about 60psi at idle and would drop to about 40psi at WOT. All was good for a couple of...

    06 f250 6.0 and i have been dealing with fuel gelling issues all winter long, i have replaced filter after filter, but now my truck has no power while driving. It idles fine, and drives fine but once i crack half throttle or WOT, nothing happens. It will stay around 2500rpms and it feels almost...

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/15006725930/ I have a pressure gauge rigged to the test port of the fuel regulator. If you watch the video I get 62 psi (blue spring) initial KOEO but then it drops once all the the self test are done, injector buzz glow plugs etc. It also does not...

    Just recently hooked up my mechanical glowshift fuel psi gauge. Before start, I have about 51 psi, starting it drops to 45, and it idles about 46-48. Getting on it on the highway, drops as low as 38. Any suggestions on what to check/replace to get my pressure back up to what I believe is 60-65...

    I have GlowShift gauges on the way for boost, fuel pressure, and oil pressure. Wondering how difficult it is to hook these gauges up? Any secrets?
  11. 6.0 Motor problems
    Hey Im curious as to what might be happening with my truck, when I drive it normally i have no issues with power or anything of that sort, but now when i decide to punch it and get moving the truck starts to sputter a little bit and im not getting the full effect that i used to. I havent changed...

    Should the upper fuel filter housing stay full after the engine is turned off or does it bleed down and empty after about 15 minutes. My truck will start with starter fluid and run as long as needed and starts up again and again, but if you let it set for about 15 minutes then you will have to...

    To start out, I've currently got installed an Edge Insight CS with the EAS starter kit and the EGT with the expandable option to hopefuly add fuel pressure. I've been researching various options with regards to adding fuel pressure to my existing cluster. Near as I can deduce I've got 2...
  14. 6.0 Motor problems
    I have an 03 6.0 and was getting 50psi at idle, ~42psi WOT. So I put in the blue sring upgrade. At first it gave me 58-59 at idle and 50 WOT. Its been a few days now and and Idle psi has settled at 55. At seemingly random times, driving or idle, fuel pressure will drop sharply as low as 39psi...

    Hey guys. I just needed a bit of knowledge. The other day I was going down the road when my truck lost 90% of power and was missing like crazy. It would idle with a light gray-blue smoke bellowing. My automatic thought was a fuel related or timing issue. I replaced the CPS and Lift Pump with...
