On the phone with Banks....

So about 40 miles outside of home coming back from the 15 hour trip from Daytona Beach, Fl bike week I start hearing a loud, violent hissing noise from under the hood. You got it, blew a 4" rip in the turbo to cac tube boot.

Well Bank's gives me the typical "it's Ford's bad design" story and $189 later, I'll see the revised design in a few days...

Well, here ya have it. Not a single mark, nick or burn in it.. just one big tear.
And this is only after 30k miles.
