Plastic Turbo Pipe Blew Up HELP!!!!!
HELP ME PLEASE. WHAT DO I DO???
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!!!
