Owned truck 6 months - need a little more power

758 5
Howdy all

I bought my 08 6.7 in early december, and well I am looking for a faster spool and more power in general. On a two lane at 60mph, trying to get past another truck is a slow process, sure it eventually hits 80 or 90, but the time to get from 60 - 80 is just lame.

My wife's 07 5.9 is much faster in this rpm range, power seems to come on faster and the turbo wine is very nice. Her truck has a CAI and the Flashpaq on it only.

I am looking to gain a similar response to my ALL STOCK 6.7. What chips/programers seems to be working well? I do not intend to do the Deletes for a while.

Thanks for the information

I have not done the deletes but I did add a Hypertech Maxx that I bought from Kevin at K2. It has added some good power and it suppose to a pretty safe tune. My mpg's went up as well but it still doesn't "spool" as quick as I would like. I would like to improve the throttle response, it seems to really start pulling when it is time to slow down! It's tough to add many mods with the emission stuff.

seems hard to imagine that you are complaining of a lack of power? What rear end ratio do you have? Heck, my dually pulls my 13,500 pound fiver like it was hardly even there. And when I hit the large pedal on the right it really starts pulling hard. This thing has more gront than anything I have ever driven and I am totally stock. Do you manually downshift to get the RPM up in the range or are you relying solely on the transmission to do it's thing?

I have done both manually shifted down and relied on the tranny to do it's thing...
Power is subjective, grunt off the line is ok, but the 60 -80 spool is slow.
Take a ride in the wife's 07 5.9 and there is an extreme difference, her truck is fast, and I am used to it, my truck is a dog off the line compared to hers, but compared to my old F350 my new truck is like a ferrari. I felt i did not have the power/fast spool to get around trucks on a two lane back texas road, so yes I WANT more power.

I want it to perfrom like the wife's 5.9. That is all.
