truck problems

the truck went in last week for a cracked intercooler tube (theb black plastic one) and a horrible screeching sound coming from the turbo. there ended up being a few other problems with the truck, oil cooler, egr valve, degas bottle was "malfunctioning", and the tech fully disasembled and cleaned the turbo. when i drove the truck after picking it was pouring white smoke and the screeching noise was much worse. i drove it right back the dealer and they said its most likley because of my stacks.

the computer has been stock for months now. during the small period of time i had the truck back it has already puked bad with the new bottle. everytime i accelerate from a dead stop it pours white smoke.

any thought.

so its been the second trip to the dealer, third day there. i stopped by and they are completley blaming the exaust for the loud screeching noise. claiming "whoever installed it accidentaly hit the up pipe with a welder and damaged it". thus creating the noise. i explained i installed the exaust and no welder was used. they said they would have it back fixed tomm. and they hope the problem is solved. i also was speaking with the tech and pointed out the fresh coolant puke all over the new degas bottle. he didnt have much to say. i havent heard of so many truck problems from just and exaust install, the exaust has on long before the problems occured. they are nice guys but it seems like they arent telling me the everything thats going on.
