90000 trouble free km , the only reason i took it off was to change it for my new to me 03 turbo . i took it apart and cleaned it union ring is in great shape also all the vains are in great shape . i was seeing 28 psi wot ...looking for 300 firm .
It's def not the turbo, cycles and builds boost, but too much. Goes through fuel, but no smoke, bucking, takes full throttle just to get to highway speed. ECT and EOT within 4 degrees or even, 197 on stock 210 with the SRL++, Waiting for my fuel pressure gauge, but I replaced the fuel pump and did the blue spring upgrade with cover, so pressure should be good. FICM sync is good and voltage out is 48.0 to 48.5 at all times, Oil rail pressure over 750 in gear idle, 3800 to 4000 WOT at 110k
I'm thinking I'm going to have to replace the O-rings on the rest of the injectors,
Going to call the Stealership and see what it will cost for a diagnostic. if it's near $300 I'll order the AE Ford kit for $359.00
sorry to hear about the trouble your having ...seems like you checked all the common causes . it might be worth it to get the ae kit any way for the furture ...lol rent it out to pay for it self ...i hope u find out what it is .sometimes ford is a ****ty place to take it hope you have good techs at the dealership ....mabey the vaines are sticking in the turbo????
That's what I was thinking also, but with the stock tune I can hear the turbo wind up and down, go into the deep throat rumble then back to high pitch.
Plus would not explain the bucking, It's like a ujoint is seized but that's not the problem.
