2004 6.0 SCT Programming Issues

Has anyone had any problems with their SCT tuned 6.0's Going into retard mode after 1 pull on the dyno or one hard run on the street. The truck dynoed 497hp then the 2nd run it did 237hp. It 250hp on bone stock run. If you shut the truck off and then restart it it will dyno fine, but after you do one hard run it screws up. Hopefully some of you fellas have came across this and have a solution for it.

Thanks Brett

I haven't had anything like that happen to mine. Curious what your mods are to dyno 497 though, thats a pretty sweet number

Re: 2004 6.0 SCT Programming Issues

Wonder if during a run the truck is seeing something it doesn't like and the PCM is going into like a "fail safe" mode

Halsey's truck did it years ago at a kauffman's dyno day. It went from 385 on the first pull to stock hp on the consecutive pulls.

Could it have slipped the transmission a bit?

Turbo could be sticking. When I made my pulls a couple years ago, pulling with the Looney file, then trying it again it didnt do anything and it pulled horrible. You probably had to let the truck cool down a little like i said could just be the vanes sticking.
