To make a long story short i have a aem intake,bullydog tripledog and a fass150 system but yesterday i was pulling my 34' traveltrailer weighing 11,000 and my quad in the bed but was pulling a long hill and you know the whistle from these intakes well the whistle went to like a air whoosing sound when i was in it pretty good and from then on my EGT'S were climbing really high from then on and it would pull but not like it should. So today i come home and the same thing the whole way home till i almost got home then the check engine light came on and the pedal was dead like no turbo so i limped it in to my buddies to get it towed do ya think a turbo?????

Ckeck all your intake tube boots. Sounds like one blew out. Or maybe the intercooler.

If '05, make sure you didn't blow the intercooler. Else, like Buck08 said, check your intercooler boots. Sounds like you blew one or blew one off...

It should throw a code since it would be losing all the boost through the leak. The turbo would whistle and spool at idle???

Yeah, check your intercooler boots...I blew one today towing my boat home. EGT's went through the roof and could not get over 10psi. Popped the hood and found one slipped on the intake side. Typical, the hardest one to get to:CRY::CRY:

Hell...if it's a boot, I'd just get a set of BD's (or other) ordered. Then you'd know it's done right and won't happen again! :w:

They said it wasnt a boot it was a gasket that holds the intercooler together it is a "05"bbram" you ever heard of anything like this i wonder if it was my boostfooler that caused it?

Sometimes the tanks on the side will separate from the cores. I've had this happen on one of my big trucks. The stockers just aren't that good for anything over stock. You can run it after it gets fixed, but the next time it happens I would look into an aftermarket unit. Much better quality, and better cooling.

Uh oh :thud:...MAKE them replace your intercooler. You clearly have a plastic one and it's just going to keep blowing and running a boost fooler is only going to make it worse!

I would say yes to the boost fooler. 2 days after getting my fooler my intercooler did that. cost me 850 for a new one. The new ones come with welded ends so no more issures there. I hit about 45lbs of boost a couple times and it let go. sounds bad and has no jam. It took about an hr to change the thing.
