Customer Question

Acquired the specified harness. have not installed yet. I've had the buzz for a long time but now I'm having trouble making boost. It comes and goes. Sometimes full throttle gives full boost. Others I can't get over 8 psi under full throttle. Also affecting downshifts. Going to replace harness today and hope it's not some other component. Is there a control valve as well?
JA: How many miles are on the car? Have you noticed any leaks lately?
Customer: 75000. No leaks. It's all vacuum trouble for sure.
JA: What is the model/year of your Ford?
Customer: 2012 f250 6.7 L turbo
JA: What year is your Turbo?
Customer: same as the truck
JA: Are you fixing your Turbo yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: It's the wastegate control valve harness. I'm going to replace it and hope it works
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I'm going to follow what this article said to relieve the buzzing sound. Just want to make sure I don't need more parts like a valve, or solenoid, etc.
