Any ideas I think im SOL

I think i figured out my problem. I think the rear seal in the turbo is going out. thus what im getting blue smoke. Problem is with the cat on it's not near as noticable and comes and goes. Ford wont cover it unless the cat it on and the stock downpipe is back on. I have the cat and it's been in, but I dont have a stock downpipe. I guess I'm ****ed?


Forgot to add waranty is out on the 31 of this month...

Sounds like the same symptom my truck had and it was a turbo seal also. You may try to just put the cat back on and see if they say anything. If they still say something try to find another dealer cuz I doubt anyone has the stock downpipe since they need to be cut them to remove for an aftermarket one.

Sorry to hear about it. Good luck finding a stock downpipe, I know just about all of us cut it at the bend. I would just put on you cat and see what happens. It can' hurt.

u can buy a 3.5 inch downpipe that has the flange to bolt on the stock cat. It is split in two pieces so you dont have to cut it liek the stock downpipe. i think they are like 100 dollars or so. Check out the venders; they all offer the downpipe
