01 7.3 Powerstroke no top end power

2001 F-350 7.3 Powerstroke 4x4 Auto
Ts Performace 6 stage chip.
Ran great for a while, now it seems the timing isin't advancing.
still have plenty of turbo boost & smoke but no difference in power between 3/4 & full throttle. :shrug:

Do you have a way to guage your hpo/icp?? scanner/pressure guage??

Why do you feel the timing has changed?

Just curious, how long has it been since you changed your oil?

What type of intake on the truck. Stock...aftermarket...Tymar? How about exhaust? Any guages? We need to know a bit more about the truck.

Do the simple stuff first: Change oil & change fuel filter. Wouldn't hurt to see if your fuel pump is clogged with trash from your tank, too, or maybe weak and about to need replacement.

If boost is the same, your engine may not be the problem. You know stock turbo on this year has stall probs. at higher rpm that is fixed with a new wheel. I notice you have an automatic trans-do you think you may have convertor problems?

Thanks for all the sugestions.
I think we found the problem.
the oil was just changed, the Engine, intake & trubo all stock.
it just put a rod out the side of the block, so we pulled the heads and 1 of the injectors was plugged with some kind of melted plastic looking stuff.

Again thanks for the help & keep up the good work

ps. do you think the rod & injector problem could have been related ???

Do you actually know someone this happened to??

Many people knock that program, but for a long time it was held as the highest power making program around.

Yes it is a bit noisy, it has a bit of timing in it, i know cause i have seen the tables on it. but timing makes power, its a give and take thing.

Anyways, i have never known ayone to vent there block with JUST running fuel 7, so easy on what you say, er type.
