Modded my truck a bit over the past week.

Installed the new 'blue sping kit' or updated fuel pressure regulator.






Removed this:




No pics but I got an SCT to replace the banks kit and had Matt at Gearhead write me three tunes for my truck. The SRL, 8k tow, and unlimited tow.

Truck runs like freaking mad now, Matt's SRL completely blows the banks out of the water. Love it!

Had to share with someone since my wife doesn't care lol.

Battery voltage? Its always below 12v until to glow plugs shut off. It takes about 2 minutes from startup for them to shutdown, once they turn off the voltage comes up to normal levels.

The SRL is the race tune for a non-studded 6.0. He would've done the SRL+ for me but I didn't wanna risk it with no studs haha. And you're right about how smooth it is. It drives completely normal until you pin it. The shifts are firm and quick, with no funky shifts that feel like they're slipping like I'd get with the banks programmer. This truck is gonna get me in trouble now lol.

I dont know the names of everyones tunes, If thats the stud safe tune I bet you are still 420~rwhp if you have an exhaust and intake. Those 6.0s are amazingly easy for power and trouble on the street lol

Yeah I saw it haha. Pretty sick setup.

I'm not studding the truck until it needs it though. I wanna delete the EGR but I'll leave the heads alone until I have no other choice lol.

You need that twin turbo kit. SAS'd Ranger and TT 6.0. Sounds like a nice garage to me!

Nice additions amigo! Love that Edge screen, so crisp and clean, almost makes me wish I ordered that with custom tunes instead of a Scangauge II. Keep us updated, love to see progress like this on people's trucks, considering I can't afford to do this kind of stuff to mine lol.

no need for intake on a 6.0 yet. Stock intake will support 500hp
