    I need input on an issue with my 2004 6.0L. It is making an odd revving sound when returning to idle. This issue us accompanied by a surging/loss of power. the IPR during these times is in the mid-30% range while the ICP is around 600-800psi. I do not notice any smoke when this is happening...
  3. Counterfeit or Legit?

    General Diesel Discussion
    I just received a Motorcraft FD-4616 fuel filter set for my 6.0L and it doesn't look right. The parts are appear to be the correct color and they are packaged the similar to every other set I've had in the past. But the packaging just doesn't match anything I've bought in the past. There is a...

  13. Titan Fuel Tank

    6.7 Performance Parts Discussion (2011-2016)
    My biggest complaint about my 6.7 has to the fuel range. I mean, why does Ford put such a small fuel tank in a truck that is built to pull heavy loads? It makes no sense. When pulling my 30 foot enclosed trailer, I was getting about 10-12 MPG. That means I was stopping every 200 miles or so to...
