Is the egr still intact? Ive had a couple that kicked my ass for quite a few days that turned out the egr valve was fluttering under the correct conditions and caused what felt like a misfire.

I too have experienced that on a few 6 0's throughout the years.

They were ford OEM. I'm down to thinking about replacing all injectors and the ficm at the beginning of the year. Without any codes, and with the power balance test not showing anything I'm kind of just throwing darts at the wall at this point.

Why would it only happen when engine is cold though? I understand your point of suggesting this, but only when cold doesn't make sense to me.

Let me ask another question too. How fast are your 6.0's building boost?

Off a street light; from idle; if I smash the throttle to the ground, the truck is quite laggy through say half the intersection, then it builds boost fast and sucks me into the seat. But that first 50' or so there's almost no power.

My first 6.0 experience, and I know the turbo on the 7.3 made it lag from a dead stop, but I thought the vgt was supposed to solve this issue. But my buddies 6 speed manual 7.3 has more 0-20 acceleration than my 6.0 does. Could a vgt solenoid go bad without throwing a code? Maybe I need to rebuild my turbo?

I'm starting a new job at the beginning of the year where I'll have a company vehicle; so I won't need my SD as a daily commuter anymore. I'll have time to do some of the more extensive searching. I've been kind of limited to a day here, wait three weeks and have a day, wait a month and have another day kind of searching.

The unison ring/veins could be sticking.
