Is my Turbo Blown Video?

It was a very hot day in Ohio around 100 degrees. I was making a lot of stops and turning the engine off with out letting the the turbo cool down first. I was completely forgetting how hot the day was and did not let the oil flow through the turbo before shut down. Then while I was driving it I got into the throttle and all of a sudden it started loosing power, then started making a leaf blower sound or more like a blown up vacuum cleaner noise. I immediately pulled over and poped the hood to check for blown off CAC connections. I did not find any obvious problems. I then started the truck again and it still was making the noise when reved up (no noise at idle). I then drove the truck for about a block to check to see if it could build boost and it wouldn't build a single pound. I knew something was majorly wrong so I had it towed home from there. Also no major amounts of smoke. No smoke at idle and just a little bit in bursts when I was driving it down the block to check for boost. I read usually blown turbos dumb loads of blue smoke. Thats not happening. Today I took off the air box and got a look down the turbo. All the fins look and feel fine. The compressor side spins freely and has no resistance. Feels normal to me. I started the truck for a brief second to take this video. Any ideas before I just start tearing it down?

Mind I ask if you replaced the seals of the turbo when you cleaned it?

It was only ran without the filter for the duration of the video. It was in a clean environment so I don't think it harmed it any. I wanted it off so I could see if the compressor side of the turbo was spinning.

Seals? I don't remember there being any seals in the turbo when I cleaned it. I bought the ford cleaning kit and followed its instructions. I did replace the gaskets that the oil tubes connect to. The one up top and the o ring down bottom if that's what your talking about.

Do you have a monitor? Have you checked the vgt sensor and plug? Do you have any dtc's? I don't think you trashed your turbo just because you jumped in your truck and took off.

Ok, checked out the vid, bad boot or exhaust flex joint. Common. Imo.

What was the verdict with this? Mine did the same thing today... Mine was spooling about 25 psi when it made a loud PEW/bang then no boost and sounded just like yours in the video. My compressor side has a lot of play in it, taking out the turbo and splitting it tomorrow.
