It just falls on its face!!

Well after goin round and round with a tuner, getting my truck reflashed,going round and round again with a tuner, I've come up with.... maybe I should just live with it. Very Frustrated through with this whole deal.

Got some supposedly hot rod tunes, truck still just falls on it's face after initial take off, puttin the hammer down from a 20 roll, it does absolutely nothing but make noise. Now mind you yes it's better than stock, and a little quicker too, but definately not this tire blistering 440 whp advertised power.


People are saying it's the tunes, even though they have been proven before, so I don't know, mechanically it runs perfect, never stutters,or smokes, etc.
I'm just real unhappy with the power. I guess I can pay for someone elses tunes, and see, but my feeling is, I bets it's gonna be the same deal. So that leaves there's gotta be something wrong with the truck, even though it shows no signs of running poorly. But then again, I guess not having the power it should is a sign of somethng.

Not trying to be a cry baby, but Geese, I've been dealing with this for a long time.

Check your fuel pressure...sounds like your pump ain't right

Re: It just falls on its face!!

I agree with UNBROKEN and LUBE.... something's up with the truck. I'm running Eric's Extreme Street and DJ's Looney and it's an 04 as well, it just cooks. What boost are you running? Do you see a spike or it fall? Are you building rpm's? Maybe it's a bad injector or 2 or something. I feel your frustration, I really do. Nothing is worse than a truck running like poopie. Who's tune are you running?

Re: It just falls on its face!!

when i'm on it, it boosts around 33 psi, I've always felt like it's a fuel delivery issue, it just feels like it's starving. I mean it revs up good, makes alot of noise, just doesn't go anywhere, I already changed my filters, so it's not that. So what would I do, go to the dealer and tell them to check my fuel delivery pressure,injectors??

Talking Re: It just falls on its face!!

I agree with the others on it being sa fuel problem. Kinda sounds like a gaser when the pumps are weak, lots of go on the bottom , but no high end. We have a guy here at the shop who had a 04 with a SCT 4" exhaust and K N N . That fricken truck flew, damn thing was scary fast compared to mine.

Re: It just falls on its face!!

by the way I run the xtreme street and race by eric.
I just don't know how to approach the problem now, it doesn't throw codes or anything, so how do I communicate the problem to the tech. "hey, don't know whats wrong, but the trucks not fast as it should be"LMAO

Re: It just falls on its face!!

I just did it a couple of weeks ago. Funny thing, now I know it's not running right, I just lost to a late model xtra cab, lowered,chevy SS. that ruined my night, he had me by about a bumper.
