To be honest, I needed a break from working on the truck....so I've been running on Jim's borrowed HPOP (words cannot describe how thankful i am)

So today, I'm in a great mood. Casually remove the borrowed pump this morning, and get everything ready for this evening.

Install the 3rd T500 pump and button everything up.

And. It's. Not. Cranking. Again.

Let me tell you amazing my attitude is right now.
Dang it, Myles

A good OEM pump should make plenty of oil when it is in good condition, your injectors aren't crazy, and your tunes are efficient- so I'm told.

T500 is a good deal and some increased performance for when you need to replace your OEM. So although tuning has "matured" in the direction away from "big oil" for mild to moderate tunes, it remains a good upgrade path and value, even if you don't 'need' it. (Before that, bigger oil was the fix to make power, so I'm told)

Much of that pre-dates my Excursion ownership, but I've had extensive conversations with guys who have been there, done that, LOL.

But only if it works

Is there any reason your truck needs big oil?

I'm with the others who say get out of the T500 and get your truck running. There comes a time to pop smoke and move to the next mission

The wild card would be to take jhl3 up on his offer of help/troubleshooting. Two eyes are better than one. I've found a number of solutions over the years just by walking someone else through what I've already done and answering their questions as they check my work. Sometimes in idiot-obvious ways, too! LOL.

Good luck and let us know how it works out!

I second the part about two eyes. I troubleshoot for a living and sometimes just explaining it in detail to another person is enough to shake new ideas loose. Another pair of eyes is even better IMO. Something this hard to fix is usually very simple.

For me I usually have to explain it: "...okay, I'm an idiot. I forgot to...or didn't...blah blah" Let's hope your situation ends up with the same share-a-beer result!

Forgive my ignorance, but all of these HPOPs (Terminator, Adrenaline, CNC, etc) are just freshened up OEM pumps right? I think the OBS pumps had a slightly less agressive degree to them, but since L99 or so they have been 17 right?

Am I way off base here or am I close to the bullseye?

No Sous, you hit the bullseye.

Well Myles, based on what Byron has said. If I were you, I would definitely go with another source for a new HPOP, maybe even just and OEM. I have had great service from Corey at CNC, so my vote is biased toward him.

I'd ditch the T500, and that is what I run, and go with the adrenaline. Lot of good reviewed with that one as well. You gave them a chance, enough is enough.

6_Myles is starting off with a positive reputation.
None as of today, it took Justin/Jason a bit to get back to me as he had a crop coming in apparently.

I'm shipping the T500 back to Terminator tomorrow he's going to re-re-review it again and I've asked that it be installed in a truck and tested before shipping back.

DP Tuner continues to be great to deal with, but they are limited in their ability to help as Terminator is the one doing the work. But this is the last chance that I'm giving this HPOP before I'm asking for a core and my money back from DP Tuner and moving on. I could have legitimately purchased any HPOP on the market for the amount I've paid in shipping/testing tools/time.

Also, can y'all think of any reason how a pump would bench test properly but not work when installed? I mean, it's basically oil supply and gear attachment...but the pumps all bench test fine.

None at all. You waited longer then I would of. An I run the T500 and love it. Hopefully he sends you a new one this time.

Not yet. New charger on the way, my 200amp is dying.

Starter is dying (or the relay).

I'm out of pocket tomorrow until eve. I might just start a Cody test. Frustrating. That's why I thought of our buddy with a similar issue, but with the HPOP.

Sent you a PM, I might be able to help.
