Default Check your turbo mount bolts

Check those turbo bolts. Two out my three were finger loose. 72 miles on the sled.

Getting the muffler off is a chore if you dont have a T50 ball end, i made a tool and it works. When going back together, tq to 10 ft lbs in a star pattern, then 20 ftlbs as final tq.

The inner bolt is a bitch, but after trial and error I figured out a way.

I found a short and shallow 13m, put the adapter on it, then slid the 1/4" wrench on it. Worked well, it was tight. I also made a spring tool, I normally use a vise grips, but no room in this monster.

The 3 turbo mount bolts are torqued to 50 ftlbs.
