Just bought a 17 that needed the timing chains, etc done. Just came out if ford and it had great power b4. Now it seems to hesitate at lower rpms and I am getting turbo noise when accelerating moderately. Then when I let off I can hear it sucking air. I have had 3 diesels but first ecoboost. Ford says it is fine but not running as strong as it was and getting the noise now. Any ideas?

Make you wonder if they didn't connect everything up properly?
Vacuum, intake piping,......
There's a ton of connections and it only takes one of the tiniest leaks to throw it off.

Ok, I had it back in their and they thought it ran fine. But it definitely has reduced power and I can hear it now. Thanks!
It’s normal to hear turbo noise. But it does sound like you are experiencing something that’s not right or something came apart.
