No we never did. It really was strange. I mean it was almost like someone dropped metal inside the air filter. Our 2 best guesses are that it accidentally got in the air cleaner when it was shipped (unlikely) or someone purposefully sabotaged the truck (equally unlikely). It was a pretty posh neighborhood and the truck is loud but that seems a little extreme. It really does look like bits of shipping staples that passed through a shredder or something like that.I wish you the best of luck in your endeavor. Did you ever figure out where the metal came from that killed the turbo?
