Tired Engine?

Heres what I'm experiencing. Have a 97 F250 PSD CCSB 230K. Everything is stock except for intake and exhaust. Once truck is warmed up it performs surprisingly well for being stock, many times I'll accel from a stop and i'll say to myself.. not bad for this olgirl. After about 2 hours of running, either city driving, or highway it seems to lose a lot of power. Take offs are horrible, just feels really tired. It also sounds differently at idle, doesn't have that grunty power sound if you know what I mean by that. My first guess is either HPOP or injectors (Orings?). To my knowledge everything is still stock inside the block.. any comments? Thanks

Re: Tired Engine?

how much boost are you getting before and after you warm it up?

Re: Tired Engine?

Auto Tranny? When running poorly (warm engine) does it start well or have to turn over lots to fire?

Re: Tired Engine?
