HELP! 2005 6.0 Motor
I have a 05 Excursion 6.0, exhaust and Extreme street tune .
I mounted a GoPro under the rear end to see how much axle wrap I get (4" blocks, mod "B" springs). I did a few launches and building pressure for a few seconds before take off. I have never really done that with it.
After 4-5times I heard a loud pshhhhhh (pressure air sound leaking) during take off. Instantly thought it had something to do with the intercooler or piping. Now I have blown old intercooler pipes off before with this truck BUT this sound more like a leak. The truck is still drivable but its not full power. Maybe 60-70%.
All of the pipes are still connected. Would the plastic tube coming off the intercooler to the intake cause this sound if it had a leak? It sounds like its right in that area ( behind the driver side headlight to the antifreeze fill up).
Also how would you check if the intercooler has a leak. I have heard the plastic ends of them don't hold up.
