I have a 2012 6.7 with only 2,300 miles on it. (bone stock) I havn't driven it much,but now I am driving it every day. Anyway around 1,500 miles I noticed while going up long grades up the Interstate I drive every day that the needle on the boost guage will jump up and down about 3 to 5 pounds. It is real hard to actually feel the small surge that is taking place as well. If you are not on a smooth road or have the radio on you may not even notice it. The Tach metar does not move with the surge. It stays the same,but like I said the boost guage is the one going up in down.
I was at the Ford dealer the other day and told them about the TSB that Ford put out (TSB 13-04-03) about this problem I am having. I found out about it on this forum. They reprogrammed it and the problem is still there.
I have read about the problems on the 2011 and I would assume that even though my truck is a 2012 it would fall into the "problem areas" when it comes to Turbos because my truck was made in the early part on 2012 (Feb)
So my questions are:
Did everyone with the bad turbos have to wait until they blow before they were replaced?
How much boost are these 6.7's getting. I've only ever got 20 lbs. at wide open.
Do they take the cabs off to replace the Turbo? Looks like a mess to get to. How long would I be without a truck while replacing?
