try not to get the truck to high boost , then let'n off the throttle quick. it can and will cause damage to the turbo sooner or later(turbo bark, no good)

If and when you decide to wOt it up, just slowly let off the throttle so the turbo doesn't bark.

oh yeah have fun with it. you got a great truck. well actually a great engine, and ok truck. this truck will fall apart before the cummins does.

good luck.

oh yeah if you have the plastic intercooler end caps....remove those and upgrade, please.:thumbsup

drive it, enjoy it, mod it and learn as much as you can about it.
