Aftermarket exhaust

I have an 03 F250 all stock, I am on the 4th turbo in 2 years, What exhaust does anyone recommend?
Turbo back ect and is it recommended to do intake or intercooler or both at same time?
I haul 2 atvs and tow a 24 foot trailer and think it may be a temp issue eating the turbos

I have a 4in turbo back straight pipe that i bought from farm boys diesel. Good kit and great price. Theres no need to do an intercooler upgrade on a 6.0, the same for the intake. However on my 7.3 the intake was junk so i put on an AFE. Maybe get some gauges put on too so you can monitor your egt's.

I agree. Get you some gauges so you can monitor the EGT's. I have a 4" SS Silver Line exhaust on mine with no muffler or kitty and love it.

Dieseldan2005 and dhanna6powerstroke
Thanks for the info, I will do the exhaust and get some gauges installed. It will be a lot cheaper to do a few mods than buy new rig.

No problem man. 4 turbos in 2yrs is a lot. I just hope you don't have something else causing that problem besides heat.

exhaust and gauges aren't going to fix your issue. More information is needed here about your driving habits and maintenance of vehicle to determine what could be causing the problem. I do not advise wasting money on mods just so you can literally SEE when your turbo is about to crap out because of your existing issue. Where are you located? Does the truck sit for long periods of time? Do you have an oasis report? Towing what you mentioned is not grounds for 4 turbos in two years. Good luck.

Darsey, I am in Boise Idaho. and this truck is not a daily driver. One of the turbos didnt make 500 miles and I think it was junk from start. Truck is under Warranty. I had no problems untill a recall where they did a reflash that was supposedly to clean up emmissions. It has been reflashed and 2 times since. I have kept a list of all the issues,VGT selanoid and Turbo seems to be where the dealer concentrates. They really have no clue they have had a Factory tech involved a couple times.
I do tow a 24 foot camp trailer and haul 2 atvs when I go 4 wheeling some time as far as
500 miles, run about 65mph on flatland and usually on pass to go over. The dealer has checked the HP oil. I get 13MPG loaded and 20MPG empty. The truck sometimes will go 2 weeks with out starting. The truck is stock no mods 03 f250 6 liter

I hope so, I am pretty mechanically inclined but know very little about diesels, The dealer is no help they work from a Ford script. They seem to be clueless and just keep changing turbo and its good for 6000 miles out of their hair and onto the next rig
