On my 6.0, my 'cold air' hose blew off twice after I installed my 4" exhaust and the intake elbow. This blown hose makes the turbo free to run at extremely high RPM's (no back-pressure on the air side). Engine was extemely sluggish, but got me back home, about 4 miles away each time (I was on test runs after mods). I don't really know if this hurts the turbo or not, but I made it back home and have had no problems since (5k miles ago).
