Turbo Exhaust issue

OK today my turbo was whistling so loud that it almost deafened me. With no power loss.

The exhaust pipe from the turbo has "popped off" (for lack of a better explanation)

It looks like it is just as simple as shoving it back on and clamping it down again, can it really be that easy. Or am looking at a trip to the repair shop for something more?

if you have an aftermarket downpipe on it get a new clamp and don't overtorque it.


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.

i don't have an aftermarket down pipe but now i need one. When i started to put the pipe back on not only did it "pop" off but it also has a crack in it. Re-clamping it won't help now. So anyone know where i can get a good aftermarket pipe?

You should add your truck to your sig. Then we'll all know what you have and will be able to help you a little easier. I put a complete MBRP stainless system on my '95 and it made a huge difference with power and fuel economy. I coupled that with a Tymar air intake system. As they say, "Diesel's need to breath to make power". I used stainless cuz I live where the road crews add salt to the winter roads, like I add sugar to my coffee...I need to cut back.

Well after looking online and suggestions from other posts I'm gonna lay-up my truck until I can afford a whole new exhaust. Might as well spend the extra $$ to get something that improves performance not just fix it.
