Loud noise, no power, lots of smoke
Hi I have a 07í deleted, EFI live. Within the last 2 weeks a loud noise has developed that you can hear really well in the cab, it sounds like the AC/heater is on full blast (except a little louder) and it gets louder with the more throttle you give it. When you pop the hood and rev the motor you can hear the blowing noise, it sounds like its coming from the rear of the turbo/ down pipe area, so I took a inspection mirror and flashlight and ran it up and down the firewall looking for a crack in the down pipe. Nothing. It just dumps coal now while accelerating from a stop or going up a hill, I hate being that guy so I keep the tranny in manual mode and try to keep the RPMís up so Iím not smoking everyone out, I have noticed a loss of power too. I recently (3 weeks ago) installed the EGR pipe delete (before I had just had the blocker plate so it could pass a visual smog check) but it ran fine for about a week before all this came up, so Iím not sure maybe itís related or a coincidence? Anyways I tested for boost leaks with leak soap, cold/hot/intake. Nothing. I normally have my monitor set to watch other stuff, but today I set it to boost and I can only build 10lbs under hard acceleration. It has 186,xxx miles. Thank you for any help or suggestions!
