05 dead turbo?

I may be a bit premature in posting as I have not lifted the hood yet but it seems the turbo is done. I started the truck and there was no boost. I put it in gear and stomped it to the floor(which didn't do much). One we reached 55mph it started building boost. I let off the accelerator after a few sec to drop rpm. Re applied acclerator to floor and no boost building. I tried that same thing at the next stop sign with no boost to be found.
Any ideas?

05 6.0 dry intake, 5" turbo back no cat

Check your intercooler boots. It is likely that one has either blown completely off or you have a decent sized hole that is preventing you from building boost. Pop the hood and let us know what you find.

PS. You won't get any boost in Park even romping on the engine.

Thanks Evil Eye. Another Q for ya!
The intercooler boot is cracked. I am looking at the 2004.5-2007 6.0L DIESELSITE Intercooler Boot Kit. Do you know if that boot will replace the lower one as well? What's the name of that lower boot?
Thanks fir your experience!

I don't recall if I bought the kit or each boot separately, but the kit should include the upper 45* turbo boot as well as the lower boot. It also includes 4 new clamps, which are MUCH higher quality than the stock clamps. I broke 2 of the clamps right on the turbo boot, both were when I was pulling a grade with the toy hauler. After the second one, I decided to upgrade to the Dieselsite boots and clamps and haven't had ANY problems and don't expect that I will.

I dont have the vehicle here with me so I can't measure or eyeball the boot. There is a single boot w/ clamps for around 78 bucks. Do you know if the boots are shaped the same? I'd like to order now but may have to wait.
As radical as this loaner truck is... It's still a Cummin's!

Actually, the kit is only for the lower hose and is the tapered one that you need. The other one is the 45* angled boot for about $130. It looks like they have revamped their site and improved the searchability.

PS. Cost for the OEM boots and replacement clamps are just slightly lower than for the Dieselsite boots. To me, it's a no brainer once you see them.

Thank you sir,
I will check the sizes this evening and order from them. I'm not into the cheap way out!
I feel like this truck came off the line on a Friday but it's paid for and I want another few hundred out of it. Slow n steady I'll get it tight!

You and me both. I don't mind spending more on QUALITY parts and construction. It goes a LONG way to assuring me that I'm not standing on the side of the road with a broken down truck.

Ok, so the intercooler boots are bad. The oil leaking mixed with heat has coroded the wiring harness. i'm thinking of pulling and repairing the harness. However, if you know of an option other than the 900 bucks from ford I'd love to hear it.
