True, but that truck could have been bought in late 2003 or early 2004 so that would make the truck out of warranty.

There's no bolts that can get inside the turbo.

All the bolts are on the outside of the housing, and the rear portion of the housing is held on by a clamp.

I have never seen bolts back out of a center housing. I have seen the bolts that hold the turbo to the pedestal fall out, but that causes little or no turbo problems.

I agree. And it's usually the bolt that secures the turbo on the passenger side front, that falls out, sitting in the valley. But that would NEVER be ingested into the engine. Someone is feeding someone a whole pile of cowchips.
