Got chip in, works great. Turbo really seems to whistle ALOT. And weird noise, like a bolt or something rattling on steel. Its coming from the air filter. its a AFE intake. What kind of problem do i have now? I love that chip!! is it normal for the service engine light to come on somethimes

Yes the ces light will come on. One thing you can do is get a map fooler that will stop it from coming on a little bit.

As for the noise just check everything under the hood. Double check to make sure ntohing is loose.

It will do that. Pretty much anything other then stock setting when you get on the accelerator hard will set off the ses light. Usually with three codes. Sometimes you will not be able to pull those codes. It is perfectly normal to have the SES light be set off when running a tune.

Might want to check for too much play in the turbo shaft. The wheel might be hitting a bit and causing the rattleing noise. But then again if the wheel was hitting , it might have granaded already. Check all the clamps and make sure you tightened them .

Pull the intake tube and see if the shaft hits the sides of the turbo when you wiggle and spin it.

It sure sound like a turbo let go.

Evening, been working all day. I got economy, hi idle,heavy tow,street race,smoke,lope idle. But my lope idle doesn't work, i think he forgot to program that in. No big deal as long as i have the rest of them. If you have bigger oil,then get the extreme setting. If not get the street race, its faster than the extreme. I went with isspro gauges, love them. All i can say about the street race is WOW:woot::icon_ford:. Any more questions, feel free to ask

Turbo shaft is the problem, what do i do now? Get a new turbo?
What is your budget? I would lean towards a Van turbo before another stock POS. If you are in a hurry and tight on funds a stock will be easier to find.
