New to forum, from Mobile, Alabama. Bought my first Diesel about 3 months ago. Went all out with an 2008 F250 Lariat 6.4L. I have about 3000 miles on it so far and love the truck. I was GM all the way until this vehicle. Had settled on an 08 2500 but figured I had beter at least drive the Ford, and after driving it I took it home.
I am ready to start tinkering with it a bit and have the usual plans for a small lift, intake, exhaust and Edge programmer. I started last night with the first mod of the Air Raid 400-214 Intake kit. I have posted in the 6.4 problems forum because after the install (which was a snap) I do NOT like the sounds coming from the area of the airbox now. After getting into the pedal and getting the turbo spun up, if I get out of the pedal there is a loud ksshhhh. Sucking sound for a second coming from under the passenger dash where the airbox is. I am told this is normal and the factory box just did a better job muffling such sounds. Heck if that is the case the extra 9 HP might not be worth the extra high pitched whine (not the usual turbo whine) and this other sound coming from under the dash.
Anyway, I am going to poke around a little more and see what I can find.
Here is the rig:
