Smile 05 F250 Super Duty 6.0 PowerStroke Diesel

Recently purchased my first diesel truck, used with 99k, and with the standard 30 day or 1000 mile 50/50 warranty, was fine for the test drive but after I took it home the second tome I drove it for 120 miles the turbo blew a hole in one of the larger tubes and was making an awful whistling noise. Dealer took it in and fixed it all and didn't even charge me the 50 percent that they clearly could have. Well I got it back and immediately put it to a road test with some distance.

Thus far it hasn't failed me after almost 2k miles in three days. Except the check engine wrench lit up and now the ABS light as well. The brakes seem to be fine but maybe I have no ABS effect now. Second while in cruise out of no where about two or three times a drive it will just shut off the cruise, speedo drops to zero, then it just goes right back to normal and I hit resume on the cruise and all is good again. Third and last issue,the Turbo was not replaced as I thought it recently had been but instead taken apart and cleaned good they said it didn't need replaced. Now it has a slight up and down surge in the boost and engine rpm's at mild to medium acceleration,but if hammered to speed its not to noticeable. Thinking the Turbo needs replaced and was talking with someone else who mentioned something about a harness know to be bad on these trucks.

Thanks for taking the time to read my post and please just let me know if you have any experience with these issues as I have not been able to locate anything specific to my issue.

Bump, no one with any similar issues? Now have a miss that comes and goes as well and its not the oil or fuel filters as that's all been changed in the last 3 days, the oil twice within a week. Until diagnostics can be run to check readings I don't know if its an injector but I personally don't think so at this point. When I start it in the morning the miss is there, but within a minute or two its gone, then it starts again within a few to several minutes of that and now this evening it started the crud where it just cuts out like its going to die. So I shut it off went into the store, come back out 5 minutes later and it starts right up and doesn't do that again the rest of the way home but did have the miss. Could really use some educated input here as I'm wondering if there is a weird electrical issue going on???

Also just some fyi, this truck has now 153k on it and a new ficm, hpop, ipr valve, and orings on the injectors and standpipe I think he said. Was done at antrim diesel at 123k or so. Thanks
