Matt's L5P info dump...

Different members have stated that they're interested in how the L5P will work out for me (reliabity, issues, emissions, etc). I know that there are a few different threads started with turbo issues, and I'll throw a link in here to those threads, along with any other links/threads that might eventually show up.

This will be my place to keep track of any issues that might come up with my truck. I'll also track mileage in the first post here, once a month...

If anybody has links concerning the L5P powertrain, let me know, and I'll add them to the first page...

Mileage:
4/10/17 - 26k

L5P tapping/knocking noise when coasting???

Had the 300 miles to empty warning come up for DEF, got a little over 5 gallons in. No idea how much was in the tank when I bought it, so we'll see what kind of consumption this tank shows, next time I fill up...

Towed my gooseneck around home a little, delivered a small travel trailer to WI yesterday. Headed back to pick up a decent sized 5er, looking forward to that. I'll get to tow that thru some PA-MD hills... Really wish that I had some way to monitor what's going on inside there. Wonder if we'll be able to monitor what looks like an EGT probe in the manifold?

Very uneventful, averaged a little over 14 mpg running 75. Stuck my foot in it quite a few times to get some rpm variation in those first couple hundred miles...
