    I recently had my upper and lower intakes off my 2011 to install Accurate Diesel's bypass kit. I was happy to feel 0 play in the turbo. The truck has 150k, regular Ford service and oil changes up to 80k, then I switched to Amsoil. My local Ford dealer has never had to change an early turbo due to bearing failure. Has anyone had one fail? I recently deleted the egr and dpf and am thinking about putting on a wicked wheel. I know a full turbo swap would be the best, but it's not in the budget anytime soon.

    Thanks gunman, I like that setup. Did you have a bearing failure and do that swap?

    I have a 2013 F-250 SUPERCAB LONGBED 6.7 I have 168,000 miles and so far my truck is running fine, but I'm already thinking of buying a turbo.
