Hey guys, been running my truck on the economy setting for a good while now, and decided to have some fun today on the way home from classes. I noticed a few strange things happening at one time since last night.
1. I have burned about twice as much fuel as usual since I filled up last night. (1/2 tank, usually only a quarter)
2. My needle on the boost gauge is vibrating wildly above 20 psi
3. The truck seems less responsive, and has a noticeable power loss.
4.The usual black cloud I leave behind me seems much more grey and hazy than before.

My buddy suggested the idea that one of my injectors may be tripping up. I'm not sure.

Any thoughts on the problem here?

27? Mine has been over 30 at times when I forget to restrict myself... Sometimes its hard not to. A local HD mechanic also suggested that it may be a boost leak...
my question is: What is the easiest way to check?

Also, slightly off subject but I'm planning to run about the same setup (Current mods in signature plus T500 HPOP, SD Intercooler, D66, E-Fuel) as what is in your signature by the end of next summer.. Do you like the performance from yours?

Thank you

Thanks a lot bud. Its getting pretty late tonight, but I don't have classes tomorrow so I'll check it out tomorrow morning as soon as I'm up and report back when I've looked all those spots over. I really appreciate the specifics on where to check.

Also, I'm glad you have good things to say about your setup.. but it makes me anxious to finish mine haha
