Plastic Turbo Pipe Blew Up HELP!!!!!


2012 F250 CCSW Deleted and straight piped. Truck has 36,200 miles on it. Half way home on a 1,000 mile road trip I hear a bang and black smoke no acceleration and no turbo spool. Pull over and my plastic pipe is blown up at the connection to the throttle body. I had 3 screaming kids, a new puppy, and a mad wife with me, oh yeah forgot to mention it was 2am and I insisted on driving through the night to avoid holiday traffic! Stay overnight in Atlanta in a hotel. Sunday morning all the dealerships around are closed for Sunday. I tried advance auto parts, NAPA auto parts, O'reillys auto parts.

I ended up going to Ace Hardware and bought a $10 rubber boot with hose clamps. Nig Rigged it and loaded family back up and drove for 9 hours from Atlanta a home (should have only taken 5, but if turbo boost got above 8psi, Bang it would pop off, and I would have to pull over, retighten, etc.) Brought truck to dealer this morning, they said since it is tuned it is out of warranty. I had them order a new plastic pipe ($250 parts and labor)

I came on here looking to see if there is an aftermarket metal replacement instead. Now I am worried there is a bigger underlying problem. Any help would be appreciated!!!

There is no replacement that I know of at this point. I'm sure someone will eventually come out with one because this isn't the first I've heard of this.

Unfortunately you may find the pipe takes more than a few days to come in. parts warehouses don't have it yet and it's being direct shipped from the factory. I just changed one today actually
