Patch on up pipes!!!!!!

Well, I was towing my camper home from an event, pulling a long hill and doing about 75 mph. This is the second pull with this truck as I have had it about a month. 2008 F350 King Ranch 4x4 with 127K miles on it. Has a DashDAQ XL with a 210 EL tune on it, DFP delete no muffler. I was being easy on it, had about 30# of boost going.

All of the sudden, huge release of air right under the dash area, boost drops to zero....... Made it home ok. Get to the house and can't find anything . Take it to my local shop and they find where there has been some kind of patch on the passenger side up-pipe.

Long story short, new HD up-pipes coming from Rudy's.........

Bummer. I just replaced mine. I cant fathom why somebody would go to all the work to gain access to the up-pipes.....only to patch them. They arent that much $ to replace.

If they are pulling the cab to replace the up pipes you may want to look into 6.0 exhaust manifolds also.....

Wish I could have, but I'm back out of town shooting another event, hope it's fixed when I get back home.

Nothing is ever easy, they got it back together & called me to say the turbo is gone. Went buy the shop, low pressure turbo has some chipped blades. They said actuator arm was stuck as well. Ordered a replacement from Rudy's, got the complete assembly, high & low. Went with stock unit as I just need this to pull my camper. Hope this is all that is wrong with this truck, I was not ready to drop this much cash this soon after buying the truck!
