Mine was built in February 2012... I'm really hoping they started hyper-balancing the turbo before my build date. One guy said all 2012's came with thee updated turbo, and then somebody else told me that they started the hyper-balancing later on in the 2012 build year, which I hope not...

26k on my truck now, been tuned for 6k miles and so far so good.

I run on no power since I use this truck for work also and don't want to break it. Although others say the turbo uses the same setting on all of the different levels and that the only thing that changes is injector duration for more fuel.

I'd love to know the date of when the new turbos went in these trucks.

They started revising the turbos in the 2011 trucks. I have an 11' and run on hot everyday with 40" tires zero problems so far. Tuned for about 20k miles.

Thanks bro^. I can't seem to find what causes these turbos to fail. Looks like good servicing and smart driving habits will make them last lol

Its the compressor wheel from all the occurrences I've heard of. It just shreds up and shoots out the exhaust from too much strain caused by boost and not enough balance. When you do tune the truck just limit the boost to around 32-34psi to be safe.

Another question about the 2012 are they having head gasket problems like the 6.0 and 6.4s?
