Also there is a fuel leak off the return side under the truck. He sounds pretty optimistic that it’s a simple fix.
That was going ro be my first suggestion as to taking the line off the wastegate diaphragm and plug it and see what it does. Next step is tighten the gate adjustment rod.

I tried to run my dually with that red line plugged into the wastegate diaphragm and it made it spit and sputter and stumble.



Im not 100% sure but i think it is the pw that goes up with the lack of icp.. i could be backwards or way off cuz it has been since 2010 since i have needed anything that has to do with tuning. Thats when i but the bullet and drove down to beans and had it live tuned on the dyno..

Only issue still is that it is still drawing a lot of juice somewhere.. like a lot.. lol..

live life full throttle

He did say he was not familiar with the hydra chip. Mostly what he’s dealt with is edge products. Which I suppose is ok. They’re probably better than they used to be and I guess that’s what they refer to as generic tunes. I sent him the info for him to call PHP and get whatever info he’s wanting. I’d say he’s going to get a little schooling. Maybe make him better at understanding these 7.3’s. Or at least tuning and whatnot. Far as pw and tuning and all that,I’ll leave it to the experts. I’m done working on these engines. Just basic stuff. It cost me twice as much to do it myself,lol!

Just a thought here,is it possible if when I cleaned the Silicon off the contacts on the pcm that maybe I took too much off of one or just a couple of contacts? Or maybe it’s close enough that it’s causing issues?

Could be. Swamps will repair for you if you did. Take a picture and Let’s see what it looks like

He says he’s not having a problem with communication just initial programming. ???? I don’t understand

He rounds like he don’t know what he’s talking about . Take off the hydra - your truck will run- just not optimum. This will see if hydra is causing the problem.

Lol! I should just go get it probably but I’ve got too much to do tomorrow. If by next Friday it’s not at least diagnosed for certain,I’m going to pick it up and take it to full throttle diesel in High Point NC. They’re probably a couple months behind but it’s really my only other choice. Let’s hope he has a handle on it.
