Ecoboost issues

So my 2017 F-150 Eco has 78K miles on it, both the timing chain and the turbos are giving me headaches. The timing chain rattles when ever the truck sits for more than a day on the first start. (Ford known problem but won't do anything to help). The turbo's cut out when ever I punch the gas to pass another car or truck, it starts to vibrate, lose power and the check engine light comes on. It's so bad that unless I pull off the road I'm jeperdizing my lift from someone running up my rear and crashing into me.
Is there any class actions going on or has anyone tried to take on Ford to correct the known issues.
Should have never went with Turbo's over V-8

IMHO, you need to get this looked at very soon....the rattle on startup may be caused by the hydraulic tensioners not getting enough oil fast enough.... this not only can cause damage to the plastic timing chain guides but it can also cause cam journal damage.....

Okay well 2017 would have been Gen 2 3.5 unless you have a 2.7 but didn't specify. The shutter is probably a misfire. By now you should have already changed the spark plugs at least once if not twice. The 3.5 is very hard on plugs.
