Usually happens when your getting on the freeway and are towing.

You tube; weep hole for your truck.

You won’t notice a misfire, unless you have a scan tool.

They also did multiple changes to the intercooler....So check to make sure you have the latest update on that.

I also see people putting catch cans on 17’s and 18’s.
Sounds like its time to do some maintenance.

Once my factory warranty is up, and I have the timing chain/phasers work done, it's finally time for a tuner. I didn't want to alter from factory tune for reasons just like this, they can't blame me for anything at this point.

I have to say though, I'm looking forward to waking it up even more.


Not sure where your post went that said you rarely take it over 3k rpms.

But anywho!....No need to get a TUNE on it, if that’s the case.

Hey! if you drill that weep hole and don’t want a permanent hole just put a screw back in it and empty the water/oil out of it, every now and then.

the only think I don't like is that my truck is programmed not to exceed 100mph - I will have to check that one day

I'd play with it if it was more fun

Still like to drive fast, but more interested in the tune for towing/mpg.
