Turbo Rebuild (Rebuid Or Replace)

Hey Yal I Have A 05 F-250 6.0 PSD And its got about 112,000 on it
I recently did my own custom egr delete and noticed that my turbo has a little bit more than normal Shaft play and noticed excess oil in the intercooler Lines. Now my question is can i get a rebuild kit or is there any places i can send my turbo to be rebuilt or should i just suck it up and order a new one Any info would be appricated Thanks

Just about every place has a shop that rebuilds turbo's.
What determines whether you rebuild or not is how much wear is in the bearing housseing, the wear in the turbo it'self etc. The intercooler tubes can pick up oil from a saturated vent filter. On the bottom side of the plastic piece between the air filter and the turbo is a small hose that plugs into the valve cover the filter screen there can become saturated and need cleaning.

Hey man noticed you live in Gloucester VA. I do as well. Drop me a line on here if you have not found out anything with your truck. It should be normal to have oil film in the cooler pipes. How much play do you have on the turbo shaft. I know that taking the turbo out on a 6.0 can be tricky. Talk to you later

Take the front cover off the turbo (the aluminum outlet side) and look at the impeller wheel and around it to see if the seal is leaking oil. If not, I would just pop the rest of it apart, clean up the unison ring and center housing for carbon, slap some anti-seize on al the bits inside that move around, and toss 'er back together.

There is generally oil carryover into the intake side of the engine from the crank case vent that enters the turbo inlet tube.

A lot of guys do...I can't remember what it's called... CCV bypass, or something. Apparently this keeps the sludgy crap from ending up in the turbo, charge air cooler and intercooler tubes.

And the main thing is i was wonderin if there is a good site i can go to to get turbo parts for this vgt psd turbo and how hard would it be to rebuild it myself,

Hey man well i do appricate your help and i am pullin it off today and cleanin it
And for the valve cover vent tube in the intake do you think it would be a bad idea to reroute it down so it just goes out instead of in the intake

International does it on all their VGT365 (6.0l) and T444E (7.3l) engines. I have never seen the Maxforce 7 (6.4l) version, so I don't know if they still do that. If it is good enough for the engine manufacturer, it should be good enough for you.
