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.

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.

Be aware that your minimum fuel pressure at WOT is 10 PSI.


Boost pressure is a bit low... I can just about bury my 35 PSI boost gauge now... Tipping in at 34 PSI. Do you install the boost elobw in the turbo? Did you check for boost leaks?

could my waste gate b bad n from time to time my fuel pressure wot is 8 n 9
OUCH! You lift pump is dead and straving the Injection pump out... Time for a lift pump... Pray you havn't damaged the IP pump...:damnit

Here is the daignostic for the lift pump...

(MINIMUM FUEL PRESSURE IS 10 PSI AT WIDE OPEN THROTTLE!)

As for the turbo you might have a wastegate that is frozen or stuck slightly open... You might have to check for that... But I'm still voting on a boost leak somewheres...

You might try this too...
