Lilred 1 F-150 1

So Im leaving the furniture store and am about to get on the Sawgrass Expy and this red F-150 is right beside me tryin to get in front of me. The TS was not set to kill but it was on the 75 setting. Anyway I mash the go pedal blowing smoke like crazy and pullin away so the 150 has to get out of it to get behind me cus his lane ends. We finally start to merge onto the expy and I let off the gas and I hear this loud screeching sound. I start thinking oh sh!t I look in the rear view mirror and see this big cloud of black smoke. Way more than usual. Truck seems to still run good though. I pull up to the toll booth and the 150 is in the booth beside me so I flip the chip up to kill and destroy. We both get on it leaving the toll booth, truck shifts into second I've got him by a truck length(didnt learn the first time I guess, me or him) then all of a sudden a loud screech followed by a small bang and then a rear view full of white smoke and I mean lots of it. The 150 goes flyin by I pull to the side of the road and check under the truck for oil. The engine sounds like it is running good idle is smooth no miss or stumble or anything. So I guess the stock turbo just couldnt take 33 lbs anymore. I drove it about 6-7 mies and then the white smoke really got thick. Doing 40 mph and no boost EGT's are about 900 so I figured I'd better call my brother-in-law and come get me. My sister is with me and let one of her friends borrow her oh6 6oh so her husband pulls up in their, get this, 07 Suburban. Man blow my turbo up and now gotta get towed home by a Chebby.:rant: Oh well at least this gives me a reason to call into work and put my BB turbo on. So I killed the F-150 and he got one on me too. At least it went down while I was in town and not 3 hours from home. Ya'll dont laugh to hard now.

At least I've got the turbo here at the house to put in tomarrow. Oh well at least I wont have to worry about it after I get it in. Other things I might have to worry about but not the turbo.

Hey why not have that chebby suburban pull you to your moms and swap out the turbo there. That way you know you have all the tools needed.
