I was going down the highway about 15 psi (around 2300 rpms) i steped on it to get in front of a car to exit and out of nowere it felt like i hit a rev limiter and lost power and ALL boost. I can still drive it and hear the turbo whistle but show nothing on the gauge and can feel an obvious loss of power and the egt's rize quickly. :dunno: I won't have time to tear it apart untill the weekend but other than the turbo is there anything else i should check. Thanks in advance for any advice.

well maybe you should get your free cps from ford and see what that does. that cps can make weird effects on a motor. take your intake tube off and see what your compresser wheel looks like. does it severly blow black smoke when you hit the pedal? If it does then you know your not spooling up so it could be that darn compresser wheel. i noticed you are running k&n is that the intake or drop in filter?

sorry about the repost it's not making any weird noises except when i shut it off it seems like the turbo stops quickly with a little screech but still spins when running it may have always been there and i'm just paying more attention know

kind of just sounds like you blew an inner cooler pipe or boot, but then you would have noise, and smoke. the high egt and no power are some of the symptoms you would have if you blew off a i.c. pipe, or boot.
