Ford 6.0L 2003-2004 F-Super & Excursion lack of power condition, surge, or turbocharger flutter after performing Field Service

Ford 6.0L 2003-2004 F-Super & Excursion lack of power condition, surge, or turbocharger flutter after performing Field Service

OC Diesel discovered that some Ford 6.0L 2003-2004 F-Super Duty and 6.0L Excursion vehicles built on or before 9/29/2003 may experience a P006A, P132B, P0401 or P0402 diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) with a lack of power condition, surge, or turbocharger flutter after performing Field Service Action or after recalibrating the vehicle with the inferred Exhaust Pressure (EP) strategy. This inferred EP strategy does not use the Exhaust Back Pressure (EBP) sensors input, although the EBP sensor must remain connected to the tube and the wiring harness.

OC Diesel service technicians use procedures to repair troubles after receiving the inferred EP calibration update. There are a variety of reasons why a customer could experience a lack of  power condition with the inferred EP calibration.

These can include causes a person may not directly see as impacting the condition or codes set. For example; a Mass Air Flow (MAF) / Manifold Air Pressure (MAP) code can be related to a MAF sensor or a MAP sensor problem. However, those codes can be caused by other items such as: intake leak, exhaust leak, Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) problems, and aftermarket modifications.

Unlock your Diesel’s Performance Potential with Superchips New Flashpaq!

Flashpaq

A programmer is the secret to unlocking the performance potential of your diesel truck.  Superchips Flashpaq  is an easy purchase choice when you compare horsepower improvements and ease of installation to common under hood upgrades. Installing the Flashpaq is easy. Plug it into the diagnostic plug under your dash, select your options, and about 10 minutes later you’re done optimizing the performance of your diesel truck.

Part number SC1855 is for the Ford 7.3L, 6.4L or 6.0L Power Stroke F-Series trucks or Excursion SUV. Using the performance tune, Flashpaq delivers up to 114 horsepower and 206 lb-ft torque of power.

Part number SC2855 is for the GM 6.6L Duramax 2500 and 3500 series trucks. Using the performance tune, Flashpaq delivers up to 119 horsepower and 206 lb-ft torque of power.

Part number SC3855 is for the Dodge 6.7L or 5.9L Cummins Ram trucks. Using the performance tune, Flashpaq delivers up to 130 horsepower and 240 lb-ft torque of power.

Superchips does a variety of testing to ensure that you’ll get maximum power without compromising driveline durability. Every tune is dynamometer validated for power to the rear wheels, not the flywheel. One of the most important measurements used in testing is Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT). This is especially critical in turbo diesel applications. Tuning with EGT in mind will lead to impressive power without jeopardizing the longevity of your engine.

For users looking for towing power, Flashpaq optimizes your engine and transmission settings for towing up to OEM recommended weight limits. Superchips comprehensive approach to engineering for towing power targets these key areas: fuel injection and ignition, throttle position optimization, boost/VGT (variable gain turbo), transmission shifting and torque converter strategies. These areas are tuned across the entire RPM band to deliver a powerful, yet reliable towing experience.

Superchips can also deliver fuel savings and the ability to switch back and forth as much as you want. Superchips goal when it comes to improving power and fuel economy, is to provide optimal towing power while reducing cost of ownership. Superchips completed a year long real world study with the assistance of Richard Petty Driving Experience to answer that question. Superchips validated they deliver towing power and fuel economy. RPDE drove a portion of its diesel pickup truck fleet over 140,000 miles towing a 40-foot trailer with a weight of 13,500 pounds. They saved almost 20% in fuel during the test and they continue to use the product today.

Additional features of Flashpaq include transmission tuning settings for improved drivability and enhanced shift firmness, raised speed limiter and read and clear trouble codes. All Superchips products are available for purchase on Orange County Diesel’s online  store.
