In a normal situation with a working VGT system the turbo will be able to control the boost by changing the vanes in response to PCM commands. You'll never get a wrench light no matter what you do,...

You can leave the front hubs locked without damage due to binding, the front axle differential lets them turn at different speeds to account for turns, etc. Now, I have no idea about what other...

If I never took the camper off, I'd go with the new spring pack. Next in line would be the helper springs, they should retain unloaded ride quality. Air bags should be an excellent choice but I am...

According to their web page, Hot Flusher makes flushers for oil coolers and heat exhangers, not transmissions. Based on that alone I would not use it on a transmission until I had a documented ...

So I have my 20' car hauler box trailer hooked up and I'm rolling out to pick up my new motorcycle today, just bopping along at around 55 - 60 mph... Coolant is around 190 like always, EOT is around...

Based on what you said your needs are, you'd be buying a diesel because you like the rattle when it's cold. You don't need one, a gas engine F150 with a plow package is what you need. If nothing...

Get a pure sine inverter to avoid any issues with nasty waveforms for sure. You might be able to use the upfitter switches to turn it on or off, although some come with remotes. The upfitter...

I find it's almost impossible to get max boost unless I am pulling a fairly decent trailer. I get no more than around 22 unloaded (but I also drive like a old fart, which I am...)

Tell you what, why don't you unplug the EGR valve again and see what the turbo boost does. A lot of people have said that they get low boost (max around 20 psi) with the egr valve unplugged and no...

VGT is the command sent to the turbo to govern how open the turbo is. 85 is the highest it will go, and that is closed. It is for fast response at low rpm, and it is where it normally is at idle. ...
