Can you get more power at low end RPM's ???

I've got my 2006 6.0 and I drove my friends 99 7.3 for a day I could'nt believe how much power the 7.3 had right off. I have to give my 6.0 enought throttle to spool up the turbo when i'm towing (my 6 ton trailer with my tractor on it total weight is about 12000 pounds) before I get enough power to accelerate good from stops. Is there any way to get more power at low RPM's I have a cfm intake elbow on it that seems to help a little. Thanks

Get an SCT and some good custom tow tunes. The stock programming limits fuel based on boost, so taking off when there is no boost it doesn't put in much fuel, this is to eliminate smoke for emissions. With a tuner they will put more fuel in and it makes the throttle response MUCH snappier. I'd contact Eric at Innovative Diesel, they seem to have the best reputation for good custom tunes. Gears will give you more low end as well, but you'll get more bang for your buck with the SCT.

You might have something wrong with your engine. My 6.0l stock has got a lot more power then my 7.3l tuned (granted it's by Banks). My 07 screams off the line.

Unless you know something specific about his truck that you are not sharing, DRW's normally have lower gears than SWR's (4.10's or 4.30's in DRW vs. 3.73's for the SRW)...

I have though about gears i'd love to get 4.10's but i think it would cost to much for a new ring and pinion kit plus the cost of install. I know i'd be capiable to do it myself but i'd rather not have the first truck i put a kit in be my daily driver that i'm still making payments on. Although the lower gears would have helped allot in these steep hill back roads I towwed my equipment up to get to my aunts camp to do some site work for her. Thanks for all your feed back on this subject does everyone feel the sct from inovative would be the best fix? Do I have to bring my truck to them for the custom tunes you were talking about???

When you buy the tuner, you will connect it to your OBD-II port and read your programming strategy, then email it to Eric and he will write you tunes and email them to you. SCT from Eric at Innovative is definitely the way to go.
