    Hi Tug,
    I read all of your posts and have seen a couple times where you talk about getting a F-450. Not sure if you are serious or just typing out of frustration.

    My Jan. 2015 edition of Trailer Life magazine showed up yesterday. On page 81 in the classified section there is a listing for a 1999 F-450.

    It reads, 1999 F-450 Flatbed RV truck crew cab
    7.3l Diesel, 6speed, 123k miles, reciever hitch, 5th wheel hitch, goose ball. Seats 6, clean and tidy, great seats. $15k. 623 451-7121.

    OK. I have heard of others having issues with the tunes. I wish you hadn't experienced that. What tuner are you running now? This issue was present before the tuner and I think the HPOP was dying a slow death additionally. The truck is much more responsive with the new HPOP. I am considering replacing the e99 injectors soon and want to eliminate this issue prior to their purchase. I am also in the process of doing the Hutch mod, regulated return, and fuel pressure guage. Any other ideas?

    Thank you for your time and response. I agree on getting the input as I don't like throwing part$ at a problem and hoping it gets fixed. I replaced the HPOP due to the old one leaking a quart of oil about every 200 miles. It began leaking shortly after I replaced the IPR. I decided that since it was leaking and potentially something that I could not rebuild myself that I would get a replacement. I read as many forum discussions as I could find to see if there was a HPOP that most were satisfied with. I also called several vendors and talked to them all. Everyone agreed that for the amount of money that I wanted to spend the T-500 was a good bet. Yes, there is a ton of conflicting info and I think this is why most people, including myself, are stumped as to what the root cause is. What did you find to be your ICP issue?

    Thank you for your assistance and multiple responses. They are the stock split shot 130's that came on the early 99 to the best of my knowledge. I have not yet had the vc's off. I spoke with Jody at DP-Tuner about that possibility and he states the tune is for an early 99 with stock injectors. The truck exhibited the issue before the tuner. So, from an injector perspective, maybe the previous owner did in fact have an upgrade; he was not very helpful, and we may be tuning for the wrong injectors. On the subject of injectors, I read that you have 160/100's, what brand are you running? I also read that you tried remans but swapped them for new due to problems. What do you think of P.I.S.? Would you do remans from them or only new.

    OK. Prior to HPOP replacement the ICP would rarely climb above 2600 even when IPRDC was in the low 80's, which is the max IPRDC limit that Jody will allow, except when I would experience a power loss (usually around 24-2600rpm) and then ease off the throttle. ICP would then spike to almost 4000. FIPW was usually around 2.2-2.5 ms. Boost was always less than 20 psi.
    Now, post t-500 install, it is all happening in the 15-1800 rpm range, with ICP going up to 2700-2900 and sometimes 3000 psi at approx 38-42% IPRDC. FIPW is higher now across the board. Cruising at 45-50 mph with ICP at 14-1500 and IPRDC at about 15-18% the FIPW is 2.2-2.5 ms. I have never seen FIPW as high as 4 and 5. None of the above is ever at WOT as I cannot afford to break anything due to this being the truck that I use for the family business. The latest weirdness is happening at 10-20% of throttle. When it happens there is usually some and at times a lot of black smoke.

    Hi, I was reading through the AIS vs. S&B post and noticed the following comment, "I had a permanent problem with ICP and I later discovered why it would crash." I have an ongoing problem with my truck. ICP pressure spike accompanied by a shudder/power loss. Would you be willing to share your ICP problem. I have new OEM ICP, IPR, EBP & tube, CPS sensors. I replaced my HPOP with a T-500 due to a leak and low pressure. Now, post HPOP replacement, the issue occurs in the lower rpm range. I am running a DP Tuner. It was happening prior to the installation of the tuner. The truck is an e99 F350 4x4 4R100 with 197k on it.

    Thanks for the reps! You know me, I am good for asking questions, not so good at supplying answers. BTW, my dielectric post was in response to JOHN2001's sensor/romp problem which, now that he has sold his truck, I guess we will never know if were caused by too much dielectric grease. I asked him in his romp thread about how to use dielectric grease and I think I offended him. I can be an ass sometimes, but I was not trying to be one then, I just had a concern and a question which I didn't really know the answer to. So that's the genesis of that post.
    Finally, I don't think I said this yet, but your decision to sell your house and get light while socking away some funds while the economy sorts itself out, is inspiring. It takes courage to make change. And changing our physical surroundings grows our psyche's in ways that make us see opportunities for progress. I am jealous of your adventure. Go for it!
