Pretty much. I'm pretty sure you pretty much gotta tear it down to do that. I don't know for sure though cause ive never done it, but pistons go in from the top, and ya know what that means.

cool. I actually have a thread out under the main "general threads" forum on here that ask how to check the compression and what it should be.

YEP, been there, done this.

How long has the DIY intake been on it? Mine got dusted by the factory intake and by the time I figured it out and put the DIY on it was too late.
Cost me $4,000 for parts and doing all the work myself.

My compression went from 300 max to 200 min on all 8. I borrowed the tester with the glow plug adapter from a local diesel shop for $20, took about 2 hours to do.

I say drive it till it drops before worrying about the blowby. Mine had plenty of power and ran great, just a little cold natured. Now she fires right up in the cold and don’t puff clouds of smoke anymore.

Only reason I did mine is cause I got a bad load of fuel and messed up the injectors. Before I bought the injectors I decided to do the compression test cause of the blowby I had for the last 3 years. After the test I decided to rebuild the whole thing, engine, injectors, and fuel system.

geez , dont just assume you need a rebuild , like was said , do a compression test , and also, if you can run a crankcase pressure test , before ripping the engine apart, i agree also with, alabamafrog, if it runs ok, dont worry about it

what does a set of rings, seals, sleeves and all the rest that I may need, cost, if I only need to rebuild the pistons????? Is there a thread that tells how to do a compression test??

powerstroke engines dont have sleeves , and there are alot of things that can cause bad fuel economy , a worn enigne can but its usualy something else with fuel economy issues
