once I was going to West Virgina ( only 3,000 foot mountians) empty and hit them going 65 and lost speed down to 50 in no time, sounds like the waste gate was letting boost out. I am assuming you don't have gauges. Sounds like you may have a boost leak. How many miles are on the truck? Are the air and fuel filters clean? When getting on it does it blow white smoke or blue smoke? What kind of testing did the dealer do? Did they just try to pull DTC's , and not check anything else? Could also be a wasted turbo or low compression. If you have any mods please fill out sig and post mileage, and any other symptoms you can think of. Gene :mafia
