2005 EGR delete

I did the egr delete on my 05 250. Now the turbo has a lot less whistle and sounds more like your shoveling sand. My MPG have also went down one or two miles. Im getting about 15 at 75 and im only getting about 9 miles to a gallon around town. The truck is a lot more sluggish on takeoffs and it seems like it takes twice as long for the turbo to spool up. So I guess what im asking is has anyone else had these problems or did I get the shaft? Thanks for your input.

I too am having many of the same issues you mention. At first after the delete my mileage jumped to about 16, but lately I get code P 132 B and a weird wind up of what sounds like the turbo on a steady throttle, and mpg dumped to about 9.. I just put my post on here and saw yours.

No i havent. I havent smelled any coming through the cab. He did say he had a hard time getting the exhaust off of the turbo though. Whats the best way to find leaks besides the obvious gaps and what not.

Pull the clamp off of the up pipe going to the turbo, get a flash light and visually inspect it to see if the flanges are mated correctly. The clamps is not meant / made to pull to connection together. The connections needs to be fitted together correctly before the clamp is installed. For sure it sounds like you are loosing exhaust to the turbo. I would say cracked bellows on the up pipe or the connection to the turbo is leaking.

Hey jmhoon. I pulled my turbo off last Thursday and found I had a serious exhaust leak on the Y-pipe to the turbo. I took my turbo into the dealership to have it checked as I was also told it could be the unison ring on the VGT. Ford replaced the ring and cleaned the turbo ($250 later). I put it back together and as ham-radio-man suggests I made sure the surfaces were mated properly prior to tightening the clamp. Loosened the Y-pipe up at the manifolds to ensure it fit. No more leaks, no codes, and no extra and inexplicable whine from the turbo. I hope it may be fixed.

WOW ! You got the turbo off and on, that was the hard part. It should take you 30 min at most to clean the turbo the first time around and about 15 min next time. This seams like a big job ,but it's really very easy once you get the turbo off. Unless your unison ring was trashed it can be cleaned up and reused. I am glad you got your truck running.
