  1. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Hello all, Recently removed my turbo to clean vanes and unison ring from P0299 pow boost. Truck would start with no turbo spool until reaching a certain RPM or would eventually after leaving at idle for a bit... VGT would stick at 85% until then. I assume the heat (and maybe oil pressure?)...
  2. 6.0 Motor problems
    So i just bought a 04 6.0. Its cold where im at so i started it up and let it idle for about 30 minutes. Everything sounded normal when i started it and walked inside. After i came back out i noticed i didnt hear the turbo at all (i did not think anything of it) so i went for a drive and out of...
  3. 6.4 Motor Problems
    Greetings Everyone, I have a tune, intake, 5" exhaust, and dpf/egr delete. Runs great besides the surge/pulse on acceleration. This only happens at a certain rpm range. I think its 2200-2400 could be wrong about that ( will update to a precise rpm and mph later). I...
  4. 6.0L Problems Forum
    So my dad was driving the 6.0 and he said as he was driving all the lights dimmed, the gauges all dropped, and then the engine died. When he went back out to tow it home it started right up and he was able to drive it home. I replaced the ficm's power board and the alternator about 2 months ago...
  5. General 6.0L Discussion
    got a smoke switch on the truck yesterday. not for smoke , but just to give it more of a rumble at idle . so being im used to the 1.32 A/R on my "other" truck . I decide to play around with opening the turbo up at different RPM and throttle positions to get a feel for how the truck reacts...
  6. 6.0 Motor problems
    I have a weird issue here. Under light acceleration on flat ground I can have one of two things happen: 1)the turbo builds some boost and I can hear it definitively. Under light throttle pressure I will see around 8 psi 2)under the same throttle pressure, flat ground and speed I will have less...

  8. 6.4 Motor Problems
    I started up my truck this morning to warm up (It was about -30 overnight), completely forgot to plug it in, but cycled the glow plugs a few times and started up no problem. Warmed it up for about 20 min and started driving down the highway.. I noticed immediately that my truck was not pulling...

    Are the 03 and early 04 turbos the same? Like everything switched over in the 04.5, did the turbo stay the same until then or did it switch in the early? And whats different in the 03 turbo and later years?
  10. 6.4L Problems Forum
    Alright so i have no boost and my turbo wont spool. Its throwing the p132b code which i have discovered to be the vgt sensor. I have checked the "dog bone" linkage on the actuator to the turbo and its stuck. Will not move freely. Im almost positive its on the turbo side but have not had time to...

    So I have not really heard to much about 6.4 vgts sticking. Is that because they don't? or what its like what every other person says about the 6.0.
  12. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Not sure what happened... coming home from work today and as I reached the top of a hill I heard a loud pop. Following this, the turbo sounded completely different - more of a whine than whistle...(stock 03 vgt) No smoke of any kind. Just changed oil and I can't see any fluids puking or leaking...

    Hey, I've got a 2005 F350 6.0 Powerstroke with 138,000, just had a EGR delete done and the turbo replaced with one off of a 07 with 40,000 miles. The VGT turns on and off while driving it causing the truck to fall on it's face. It runs awesome when the vgt turns on. I already tried doing a VGT...

  17. 6.0L Performance Parts Discussion
    Ok I'm looking for some advice on turbo and injector combos for pulling in work stock class. I also use this truck for daily use so drivability has to come into play as well. I would like to stick with VGT but I'm not opposed to going a different route. So what's the best combo? Say power max...
