Blown Turbo Boot
Hey guys, been lurking on here for almost a year since I took delivery of my '16 Canyon Duramax. Figured I would go ahead and sign up to help share my experiences and issues. Left work today and noticed a high pitched whine similar to a boost and/or exhaust leak. Truck ran fine this morning on the way to work. But as soon as I left work I heard the sound, temps were also 10 degrees F outside. Seemed to be noticable more over 10lbs of boost. When I got home I had my dad come down and brake torque it so I could maybe see where it was coming from. Sound was generating around the turbo itself. I was hoping it wasnt the turbo so I pulled the hot side intercooler tube completely off and inspected the boots and low and behold the boot at the turbo is split right where the one of the two reinforcement rings goes around the boot, but the reinforcement ring is long gone and no where to be found. So, looks like its a good time to upgrade to the AFE tubes. I dont think I'm gonna even attempt to get a warrantied one from the dealer cause of the failures Ive been hearing. Unless they have had a design change.
