NOOOO DOUBT

Well Thursday I installed the turbo @ the shop, drove home and cracked the 6.0 intercooler.

Saturday I drive back to the shop, install the new 6.0 intercooler, double clamp the boots, fix one of the intake Y boots that was barely hangin on, fix the exhaust entirely and it's perfect, put a new O ring on the inside of the pan for the dipstick and start the truck up. Man it sounded good, and everything was great.

Leave the shop and get on it while entering 95 and hear a loud screech.

Get off the next exit and pull into a gas station, pull the intake off and the turbo wheel is eating into the housing.

WTF....


If it isn't one thing, it's another.

So what happened Marty? Isn't that a brand new charger? Hopefully its a problem with the charger itself and Josh will get you taken care of on it. Good luck man...

and BTW, if you can push 60+ psi now, a 6.0 I/C with the plastic end caps isn't going to cut it. Need an upgrade. But I'm sure you already knew that.

Bought it from Craig as an off the shelf S400 charger that supposedly had 1000 miles on it. He lives here in MD, and had Josh modifiy the exhaust housing to fit on my truck. I already had a 6.0 cooler on my truck and I broke it but my I/C boots were already sized for the 6.0 cooler and I got it for free so I just threw it in there.
