Sounds like the smoke might be unburnt fuel and the fuel injection(ecu) needs to be plugged into a lap top while vehicle on dyno and set up the fuel curves etc to the engine requirements.You have changed too much.Your original air flow meter will no longer be sending the correct signal due to your intake mods being way outside the way it was supposed to run and your airflow speeds have changed there by changing the signal the ecu gets.Good luck

Whistling when accelerating outlander turbo diesel


turbo whistle is common as it comes from the tips of the compressor wheel passing through the sound barrier and the turbulence occurs. IN the older trucks you would the turbo whistle as the engine reached full RPM just before a gear change. In smaller engine it is not do noticeable as there is an excess of air pressure that keeps the compressor wheel at a lower rpm and the pressure is dumped out. Turbo compressors reach revolutions in excess of 120.000 rpm under full load If it has just started to make the noise then check the intercooler system for leaks--loose clamps--- splits - Have the turbo compressor checked for damaged fins from the ingress of fine dirt from a bad air filter---check the air filter is not blocked as the turbo speed may result from running in a partial vacuum ( no load on the compressor wheel)

Turbo / Intercooler Hose collapses


Most probably your hose is the problem, does the exhaust smoke more than usual ?
If it does then the collapsing hose is reducing the air volume that your engine needs. Your turbo is trying to drag air from the intercooler rad the hose collapses, reduced power.
If you can't get a new one before Christmas try taking off the hose and pushing a hard plastic pipe inside it, if there are bends in the pipe cut the plastic pipe into halves and feed it in. may help. But you really need air into the engine.

Blows black smoke when running 2600 rpm and boost goes down


I assume its the 6.0L diesel...If so sigh......double sigh.. I had one of these...triple sigh. I need a bit more clarification. How many km on the engine/vehicle. Also, you say that it blows black smoke while running at a constant speed at 2600 rpm, or while you are accelerating to 2600 rpm. Also, when you say the boost goes down, does it decrease by itself, or when the throttle is let off. The boost naturally goes down when the throttle is released (not trying to be a ****, i dont know how much you know). However, if the boost is going down by itself, while the engine is under load (its not supposed to, it should stay constant) it could be a couple of things, which "can" contribute to black smoke. If there is a leak anywhere from the turbo to the intake of the engine, it will cause the engine to get less boost, which means less air into the cylinders, which means black smoke. Check all of the connectors/tubing coming from the turbo to the intercooler, and from the intercooler to the intake manifold and see if there are any problems. The more costly problems which results in boost going down, and black smoke, deals with a problem with the wastegate on the turbo (controls how much boost is produced, and when too much is being made, it will bleed off excess pressure). So if your wastegate is malfunctioning, your boost will go down and you will get black smoke cause the engine is not getting enough air. also, around 160km...80mi, the injectors "can" start to go on the 6.0L diesels....I would check the turbo for leaks, the tubing for leaks, and the intercooler for leaks (a big rock can punch a hole in radiators and intercoolers...intercooler will be in front of the radiator). I hope this helps
