Just got the truck back , had a P0299 turbo under boost. First try was a new turbo, failed again after 20 miles. Second attempt, NOX sensor and ECM update, made it 70mi before next fail. Final fix was to pressure test the intake system with smoke and find the cracked pipe. When I took it in I told the SA that I had seen the cracked pipe on the forum so when I picked it up, he said you were right, pipe fixed it.
I have now had the truck 1 year and at 22k miles. Love the truck, so far I have averaged about 27.5 MPG. The DIC. Shows best mileage for 25 miles is 54. I'm sure that is a trip down from the VA house, 6000' to 250' here, the first 20 miles are all throttle off exhaust brake on.
