New Turbo For FREE

Just got off the phone with the Ford service department, I'm getting a new turbo for free...lol...although they do have to take off my cracked turbo and replace it under warranty. I bet they hate seeing my truck come in cause they know they have to fix more stuff under warranty. Oh yeah, just got off they phone with the Dodge dealer also, he wants me to bring my truck by there so they can have a look at it...lol...I didn't tell him that I would have to put it on a wrecker, guess that wouldn't be a good way to get a good trade in value...lol

probably a bad batch of metal on the housing, a weak spot in the cast probably cracked after the heat/cool effects of a turbo set in on it.

I've seen it happen, not nessecarily diesel trucks, but rather in some friend's turbo street/strip car builds. My own experience, probably tottally unrelated to yours, is the aftermarket turbos they buy are cheaper "ebay turbos" that are much lower quality, both in tolerances, and in quality of metals.

I'd say your's is mroe a fluke than the rule.

Congrats on the new turbo!

Thanks, I'm so glad I'm getting a new one, now someone will probably keep there job because I had to get a new one, that means somebody had to make it, somebody had to box it, somebody had to ship it, somebody had to make a ticket on it, sombody had to cut down a tree to make the paper the invoice will be on, but I'm gonna cost someone somewhere there job...

No offense but are you going to rag on Ronin on every post you make? Isn't it enough to just keep it in the original topic much less drag that argument to another one and ruin two topics with stuff that should be handled over PM's and not in public?
