What gears do you have in there? With 4.10's you may be getting high enough to run out of fuel up top. 3.55's should get you up higher than that though. It really helps having gauges in there too, you can monitor what is going on a little better.

Hmmm...

I would start by getting gauges first thing... (Fuel pressure, pyrometer and boost)

Then since you don't have that here is the fuel pump dianostic...

Take notice to the minimum pressure of 10 PSI at WOT... Lack of fuel pressure can and will damage the VP44 injection pump.

Also check all of your intercooler boots for leaks.

Got a good point... :Thumbup:

But a boost gauge and pyro gauge would show that too. Abnormally low boost pressures with abnormally high pyro temps... Along with more smoke than normal.

Also remember that our trucks stock are Dogs. But that could also be a sign of a weak VP44 injection pump.
