The bunnies on the OP's cheeks in his profile pic indicate a possible pattern of bad decisions...
And the fact that he willingly used it as a profile pic doesn’t speak flattering things.

Plus... he bought a Slocus ST. We have a profile on the suspect.

Anyone?
I still haven't recovered yet, lol.

And to the OP,
You were doing a burnout in the snow and it sounds like your turbo took a dirt nap. You can't really blame the dealer/brand or whatever. Doesn't really make sense.
Best of luck getting it resolved, but it sounds like you'll be doing a motor swap soon. Search around on here, there's lots of good info!
Keep us updated on your progress!
I was told I had no warranty if I had know I woulda blown it up instead of taking care of it, that was the only time I hit the red line

the two ton option has a little more reach. might be nice. I was fine with the 1 ton option.
You'll definitely want one of these. and a junkyard Ecoboost pulled from a vehicle in the "CHEAP motor swap option" thread.

I'd say don't pay for a shop to swap in a new motor. buy a lift for $150 and DIY.
take the Axles out, Downpipe off, charge pipes off, shift linkages off, and wiring harness off. take the hood off and pull it out.

Good luck
Thank you sir this was actually pretty helpful

Man apparently everyone is really concerned about my profile picture
Yeah, I think you missed the point of all this.
You're welcome back in 3.
When you do return be prepared to contribute, because if you think people here are giving you crap now?

Blew it up before owning it for one month
you're alright guy. hooning is fun but s*** breaks. they're mass production cars not rally cars.
fixing stuff is also fun.

One-hundred and sixteen thousand miles. Unknown how the FoST was treated by it's previous caretakers. The word lemon should not even come into this discussion. Having said that, I feel for you. Back in ancient times (March of 1982 to be precise) I had my 1980 Mustang Turbo drop a valve in cylinder #4, $2500.00 later (about 10 grand today) car was back in my hands. Hope you get back on the road soon!

I don't know what I like about this the post the most. I'm trying to decide between the fact that you stated the obvious, or that you adjusted for inflation. LMAO!

You made me chuckle and in doing so the OP's post will be waiting for them upon return from their hiatus.
