clifford is getting there now.

Well those of you that know me know that Clifford is my big red dog of a truck.7800lbs of CC f350 .
As of now I have
Gauges
E-fuel with gsl392 pump
Deleted ebpv and deleted pedestal
Bellowed up pipes(thanks bill)
Dp with 4" home built exhaust(cheap)
Old gold hyper tech (50hp) chip (thk Jason)
6637 based intake built by me
T-500(thanks Glenn)
Flexalite dual 15.5 e- fans

The old guy always made in the 20-22lb boost numbers until the t-500.
My boost now is 29 lbs . therefore I know my old 15* pump was not doing well at all.
I am thinking about getting it on a dyno here locally just to see where I am at.
I feel that it runs pretty well considering 331000 mile original injectors. If it weren't for me being an idiot I would finish hooking the 6.0 ic and call it done. But we can't do that here can we?
What I am trying to say is IMO efuel and good high pressure oil pump are important even with stock injectors if you really want to maximize what you already have . we shall see what the lie detector spits out here soon enough.

I disagree with one thing, "I would finish hooking the 6.0 ic and call it done". Just like a house, they are never done, LOL. When I get my new tunes, I will also get on a lie detector!

What's next Aaron, injectors?

That's a good list Aaron! I need to make one for mine as well. I really wish I could do the HPOP before I head out, but my budget is tapped for the time being. I am stoked to hear its running well and you are happy with it. We are pretty much neck in neck with our list with the exception of the HPOP and electric fans. I will be curious to know how those do when towing. Post some pics dude!!

Glenn...injectors...well you never know what's down the pipe:-)

Byron.I'll be honest.I wouldn't do injectors until after a good hpop.
After this I'm sold .

Big things are no boost leaks and no exhaust leaks!!! (Both of which you have handled)

And adequate fuel.I had a tight stock system with new pump and shimmed regulator and pressure would drop from 70 down to 30 on a hard pull.

From my experiences these things need done just for a mild setup if you want to maximize the stock hardware.

Yea I need to hook up the ic...just not wanting to do it twice :-/

Sounds like you got the "Big Dog" woke up and running well! I'm hoping to be traveling a similar path myself soon, but you know how that goes....

I'm curious as well to hear what you're putting to the ground with those mods.

Aaron I am really stoked for you that Clifford is running well! I know the feeling. Ruby has been so good after getting the oil pressure switch for my E-Fuel figured out. When I do the injectors, I am doing the HPOP at the same time.

So, far my pressure only drops about 10 pounds on a hard pull, but I am guessing I will really see it when I am pulling a grade with the trailer. I'll have a thread started for when we move in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned!
