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.

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.
