My buddy just bought a 97 F250 5 speed, and it is sick as crap. It has a ts which dont do much, so we put my old superchips programmer on it and still runs like crap. I scanned it with the superchips and it shows no codes. Where should he start to look for a problem.How can we test to see if the hpop is weak??

No codes, look at fuel issues first.

Sorry just noticed I posted in the wrong place, but anyway, changed the fuel filter,no help. Does it have a pre filter or just the one?? The truck is just weak, when you hit a hill it will start bucking like a horse. Is that common with that body style. Also its extremely quiet,inside the cab and the exhaust with staight pipe.. its so quiet it doesnt seem right.

first thing to do is to get it scanned... your hand held superchip thing wont read anything.... have it scanned by a GOOD scanner as in AE, snapon, or the dealership.... once you do that then we can help you with what is going on.... right now we are looking for a needle in a hay stack, but we cant find the hay stack
