Now, on to the point of this post – How you can get more power and better fuel economy out of your 2008 – 2010 Ford Powerstroke.
Start with our FLO~PRO 4″ Downpipe Back Exhaust (follow link for more details) and add to that, one of our H&S XRT PRO Tuners. This exact application is what prompted one of our Ford Powerstroke customers to write in and say:
Just wanted to let you know that I installed the exhaust system on my F-350 and to see that I’m pleased would be an understatement!!! I’m absolutely delighted, as my truck now has a ton more power, but my fuel economy has increased dramatically. Right after I installed the system, I hauled my 24’ cargo trailer containing a car, two motorcycles, a scooter, tools, etc. from Edmonton to Kelowna and averaged 17 litres/100 km fuel consumption pulling through the mountains. Generally, I’d be burning nearly double that amount!!
Empty, I can set my cruise control at 120 kph (75 mph) and get 10-11 litres/100 km (21 mpg). In the city, my fuel consumption has also increased a chunk. Of course, with the standard extra hp and torque I’ve got (and the traction control turned off), I can smoke the hides off my back tires, haha!
Well, thanks again Bryan and I’ll keep you posted as time goes on. I expect to sell a few of these systems for you as I have friends with the same truck and the same squawks and talk with others when gassing up, etc. Say hi to Hammond and Turner for me.

I have a 2005 F250 6.0 that hydrolocked. I found a bad EGR cooler and have removed everything done to the heads with the exception of the high pressure oil pump. When the truck broke down, it sat for 8 months before I pulled it into the shop.
I tore down the turbo to find it had water in it for some time. What would cause this?? Please help me out! By the way I paid Ford over $2200 to rebuild the high pressure oil pump about 3 years ago. Should I rebuild now as well??
