Hey all, I'm at my witts end with my 4th gen. Problems started around a month ago. First, I would consume a tank of def in 200 miles. Dealer wanted 2200 dollars just to look at it. Decided to solve that problem and a few others permanently instead with ez lynk. Truck ran great on a 700 mile trip, towing a trailer across the Rockies. Only thing wrong was my exhaust brake was acting up and not working much. Next morning it was hard to start but ran fine otherwise. My wife took the truck to town that night and I noticed a blueish smoke coming from the exhaust when she got home. I noticed later that both my oil and coolant levels were dropping. These led me to believe the turbo was failing. Jump forward to last night, I get the s363 drop in from HTT. After install, I fired it up and the smoke from the exhaust is worse, truck idles HORRIBLE and I can only make 12 pounds of boost at around 3500 rpm. With the ez lynk and stock turbo, the clutch would slip on stage 2 and above. Last night, I cranked it to stage 5 and floored it and the clutch held. Truck has absolutely no power.
Any help at all would be great. Or if someone wants a 2015 6 speed manual 3500, come get it
