Unhappy engine ?????

Hi troops,
I am wondering why my 2003 F-250 sounds different then a 2005 model and also why the truck drives like crap untill it is a bit warmed up
It is a sign that something is coming up??

thanx guys,

Based on your signature, I assume you own the 2003, and you are comparing it to someone else's 2005. There are a lot of things that will make them sound different. Would help if you told us the mods to both trucks. For starters, your 2003 has a 10-vane turbo, whereas the 2005 has more vanes (not sure if it is the 13 or 15-vane variety). More vanes means LESS "F-16" type sound. There are many who have swapped their 05' and later 6.0 turbos to get an 03' version with less vanes. Just for the sound!

Anyway, the turbos make a big difference in sound. Now, another factor is the exhaust. If you 03' has no aftermarket exhaust and the 05' does (or vice versa) there will be a huge difference in how they sound.

Please tell us the mods/set up and we will be able to tell you what you are hearing.

Regarding it taking time for your 03' to behave normally, that probably means your turbo is sticking. Could be other things, like a fouled up EGR valve, etc. If you are handly, rebuild and clean the turbo and see if that fixes it. I'd also clean the EGR valve. If you're not handy, bring it to a diesel tech to get that work done. I assume it is no longer under warranty.

Thank you very much,
Both the trucks are bone stock,what is bothering me is that the 2005 engine sounds much quieter than my 2003
It could be that the turbo is sticking because I always get a p132b code,I just delete it and go one

I believe in either 05 or 06, they started Commonizing the head's basically using 6.4L heads on a earlier model for testing purpose's. there's a way to check for that but i forget.

Also as mentioned before, the 05 had more veins in the turbo, they had 15 as opposed to the 10 in the 03.

That doesn't make sense, 6.0's had 6.4L heads on them, if they were made in 08, they wouldn't be making 07 models.

Oil type and age seems to play a big part on how loud the engines are.
