Bang! then no power or boost

I got my truck back friday from the dealer. it was in for an EGR cooler replacement.
I was driving up a hill and I heard a big bang! then I had no power and no boost?

I drove it this am and it finally threw a code. But dont have a code reader so I dont know what the code is.

Start by checking all the couplers and boost tubes from the turbo to the motor.

Had the same thing happen to me, loud enough that the kids started crying! It was a hole in the top of the boot coming off the bottomed of the inter cooler.

Inter cooler boots. Probably clamp improperly installed.

I had the same thing happen to me hauling a tandem dual gooseneck. Had to pull over, limp it for a couple miles to a gas station, get some rags and hairspray and then tighten everything down. Scared the crud out of me. I immediately looked in my rear view mirror trying to see the transmission that I thought just fell out of my truck. Easy fix.

Depends on which one it is. The only ones I've had come off were on a friends 6.4 and it was always the top one at the turbo.
