What do you think about this? (kinda long)
So, my wife has her mom, her sisters, their kids, my kids
, just a whole house full of women and kids over to make holiday cookies and stuff. What am I going to do.....
I know! Spend the day in the garage!
So i'm working on my '02 PSD,. I had a turbo back 4" exhaust w/5" tip put on last week. And now its time for some DIY mods. First the 10K mod. Done. Then the doo-dad thing for the airbox. Done. Now the foil delete thingy, I pull the pipe out, get all the foil off spend the next 45 minutes with a rag and acetone cleaning the sticky off. Now this is where it get silly? I'm just checking things out, you now just looking at this mechanical masterpiece when I look into the intake tube at the turbo and the impeller fins are all bent and chewed up
. Now I'm still a newbie to this turbo thing but I know thats not the way their supposed to look.I bought this truck used from Ford about 2 or 3 months ago and other than the 2" leveling on the front and the brush guard the dealer took off I know nothing of its history or what the PO had done with it. If the circus wasn't in the house I would've had a camera to take pics with so no pics. Now I have 75,000 miles on this and was told that the motor is covered for 100,000 miles. If I take this to the dealer will this be covered? Its runs fine and I've had no problems or funny noises or vibrations .So if I took it to the dealer what would I say?? Or should I just but one of those wicked wheels and change it myself??? Thanks Kelly Oh and one more thing, the belt had a little squeek so I put some belt dressing on it and now it has a BAD squeek:rain: The belt only has about 2,000 miles on it. What should I do? Thanks Again....
