@FORScan Are those options available now? I also have a 2005 F250 Superduty Powerstroke 6.0 Turbo Diesel.

Would love those options ( Cylinder contribution test )

Just discovered forscan and so far it has been amazing. Power Balance and relative compression tests would be a HUGE help .Especially for diagnosing misfires. Hopefully these are in the works.

I know it has been a while since this post was made, but I have access to a 2004, 2006, and 2007 F250/F350 6.0 trucks. I'll see about getting logs for all of them and sent in.

A true injector contribution test (all 8 injectors on a graph, showing individual fueling) is invaluable on the 6.0 Power Stroke engine.

The 6.0 Power Stroke is getting very popular for maintaining and modifying in the USA, and FORScan is starting to get noticed, the only piece it is missing is that single test. If there is anything I can do to help just say the word.

For those who don't know. The 6.0 has 3 "versions" in the F-Series trucks. The 2003.25 - 2004.5 version. The 2004.5 version, and the 2005-2007 version. The Ford Coffee Table books detail some of the code changes, but not the tests.

So if I'm reading right, FORscan does NOT have the ability to run the power balance test to check for misfires? I have a 2011 Expedition 5.4L 3V and was hoping to be able to run the power balance test using FORscan.

This thread is speaking specifically about a test regarding the Power Stroke 6.0L engine, the gas engines have different tests, so I wouldn't assume anything in this case.
