:thumbdown Sorry to hear the news. I have been in "discussion" on another forum about this issue, as I honestly do not feel that things are being handled in the most 'customer satisfactory' manner.

Long story short, the what is to be the latest TSB, states that a customer has to come over several visits, prior to a turbo replacement. The usual drill. A few visits for reflashes, then maybe a turbo cleaning, and then a replacement if need be. There are to be some mileage limitations as well, but my pverall point is please address the root cause. If the turbos are it, then address it! I see a high potential bandaid of the reflashes and cleaning, basically to milk you truck until the warranty expires.:bang

Yeah I talked to my service guy and Im trying to get around the bandaid BS and straight to the new turbo since this is the third time I have been down this street....I have got 10mo and 12K out of original turbo and 10mo/12k out of the one they put on. Im just happy its not coming out of my pocket.. the only thing that worries me is that we are supposed to head to the smoky mountains the week of Jul 6. :nunu:

Yeah, I "think" I felt a difference in mine too, when it was reflashed. Mine went from an AP to an AS. But I think the '07.5s are a bit different.

wow so these are the new 6.0's only dodges version...... what causes them to go out?
some are some aren't. I have been 11800 mi since my last problem. I hope this fixes them. the guys that have the deletes don't have these probs, but I bought this truck cause I wanted the warranty so its kinda the reason I have yet to delete..its gonna happen but I don't know when. The EGR system is blamed for this due to the more soot into the intake..and then back through the turbo.

Sorry but that's incorrect info. If you get a whole new ecm in your truck after march 4 2009, it is supposedly not to allow programmers, but they cannot flash your current ecm to that, you would have to have a total replacement. So flash away. Just don't let them replace it. I'm sure in time someone will crack the new ones too.:thumbsup

the ol seat o the pants might feel a differnce and still be a band-aid to a larger problem when the ecm sends-receive the MIL code (CEL) it could put the engine in a safe mode (reducing power and safegarding the motor from more abuse) till you get the ecm cleared out.
Correct if i am under the wrong impression...
