2004 F-350 SD 6.0L Diesel

Want to know if the dealer can reset the factory settings on the ECC or not. Truck just does not seem to have the power it should.

They can certainly reprogram the ECC with the code that came out of
the factory.

Perhaps one of the tuner programmers might net you some more "oomph".

there have been a multitude of updates for the 6.0. Four in the first 3
months of production. Have you checked your air and fuel filters lately?

Vehicle only has 8500 miles on it, air filter is clean, like new.

What kind of updates? Are they software updates for the computer?

Depends what you want to do. $400-$1000 search for edge programmer,
banks, if you wanna see the high end stuff. Be advised that Ford
explicitly states in their owners manual that use of these will void
your warranty.

I bought a Superchips programmer for my V10 powered SD. BIG
difference in tranny performance, minor difference in power and
torque. The tranny shifts much more firmly and I was able to fine
tune the shift points to my liking. Only real downside is the need to
run 91 octane gasoline.

I think I paid about $350 for the thing.

Something to be aware of when "chipping" a diesel.. You will need an
EGT gauge/pyrometer to monitor exhaust gas temps if you really start
boosting the power..

There's a guy around here with an '02 Excursion diesel that leaves
lights like a scared rabbit. About all you can hear is the turbo
howling as it spools up. He's got a Bully Dog setup under the hood
and claims 150hp over stock and something like 800 lb ft of torque..
Dunno how accurate that is, but it's definitely accelerates like it's
got some serious power.

Re: 2004 F-350 SD 6.0L Diesel

Well, after researching the truck history with Ford dealer, I found out that several drivability updates to the computer have never been installed as called out by service bulletins. Truck was built in Aug 2003 but never had the ECM updates installed.

SO, it is going in this week to get that done.

Hope it helps....

I read your message, and noted the year of the truck. If this is a
lower than normal power problem, it might just be under warranty.
