Don't know if this is the right place to post this.

My mom and sister and grandparents. Are broke down in their excursion 40 miles east of Amarillo on 287.

They said they heard a big swoosh sound and now the excursion is making no power.

It has an egr delete, magnaflow exhaust and is running river city diesels tune.

Is there anybody that could help out our suggest a place to take it for repairs.

They are on there way to Denver from Fort worth.

If anybody could help that would that would be great. You can contact me at
eight one seven five eight four zero one seven one.

any help would be really appreciated.

If I had to guess, intercooler boot/charge pipe popped off. Had this happen in my Legacy GT Turbo at WOT and I damn near pooped myself.

Left and right of the radiator and where else? I haven't looked under the hood real close in a long time since it's my moms car.

Up to the actual intake and hot side of the turbo. Tell them to follow the pipes up and make sure they are connected
