First trip out with new fiver (12000 lbs), uphill, US 15 out of Mansfield, toward NY, boom!, intercooler gone. Cause, turbo vanes rusted in place. New IC and turbo. Ran like it should 'til this year, (3 yrs, now 45K mi) boom, turbo hose blew off. New turbo hose back on the road. Coming home, engine starts skipping. Limped home. Hometown Ford dealer installed new EGR valve, fixed problem, I think! Runs great now, although the wife's hair is still standing straight up from the "Booms". Looked at new Diesels for past two months, $70K. Whew! Guess we'll give our dually one more year. Ahaha. Told by mechanics, don't let them sit. Use 'em. Will do. Considering adding data monitor for boost, ex gas temp, etc. Whaddya think?
