Im fixing it I realize that it could be the stc but that really don't make since or the icp or hopfully it's the Ipr valve in any case my buddy borrowed my scanner and I can't see what kind of voltage im pulling I guess what I want to know is
Is there a possability that I have a short a frayed wire under the truck that has caused the oil presser gage to drop and rise without the truck even studdering???

That with out codes there's no way to know I think I just wasted my money no offense but im pretty smart did my own egr delete and depending on what's up with this if the stc is bad easy fix I'll rebuild my turbo my buddy took his 7.3 to a shop with stc problem 1700.00 and change wtf I mean come on the kit is less then 70.00 and the new oil pump 500.00 top of the line I learned because I just think most shops will pull a bunch of who shot john storys and murder you wallet again no offense

Hello, if you are getting fuel then I'm sure that isn't the problem you are having. It can be difficult to diagnose without codes that is correct. If you have a high pressure oil leak then I would get OTC fitting 303-765. This goes into the ICP test port to test for an air leak. This will allow you to actually hear where the air leak is coming from. On this particular vehicle you don't need a new HPOP with an STC. If that is the case. It could be a faulty IPR valve or an injector could have broke causing the high pressure oil leak. I wouldn't go buying a bunch of parts without an idea of where its going. This is where I would start though. If you have a scan tool that will read ICP pressure while trying to start that will be very helpful. If you build up to 500PSI the engine should start. If it doesn't start with 500PSI then there is another issue elsewhere.
