Stopped for a coffee tonight left my truck running and noticed it had a knock. Sounds like it is coming from the area in which the turbo is. Still builds boost, no oil coming out exhaust, not smoking. Nursed it home and noticed sound progresses with rpm and now has a squeaky sound added to it. when I shut it off the sound continuess to come from the turbo area as the turbo spools down. Truck has 6200 miles on it, spartan warhammer added , dpf delete, and egr delete done at 4000 miles. No check engine lights or codes thrown. Going to take to dealer on monday, my guess is the turbo is on its way out

How long is a warranty for the turbo on the 6.7 anyway ?

If no warranty, a stock turbo will not go back in place

It may not actually be the turbo, but I'm interested to see what they say. Seems like I remember someone else complaining about a knock on these trucks too

Started the truck today, knock is gone but now has a squel coming from the same location. Still builds full boost and runs normal, just has a squel

The turbo seems just adequate for what Ford was trying to do... I am sure that in the near future this turbo will remain fundamentally the same but it will be slightly upgraded so that it handles the ever changing environment encountered by most that tow with these trucks. All of the 2011 owners really are "testers", as Ford can only test and predict so much. I love turbos and this is a great idea, just undersized slightly.

Quick question... Wasn't H&S working on a piggyback turbo setup for this truck? I seem to remember a thread with a picture of some new turbo parts!

Tune didnt raise the rpms much at all, the front of the motor is cracked, and the radiator is leaking
