Turbine under blow/boost

Now I have a nightmare.
One of the Search and Rescue trucks that I supervise and service is giving error code P0299 (Turbine under blow/boost) and I have taken the truck to shop and the engineer there is use to Ford, and he has tried all the tricks he knows and nothing works.

We took the turbine a part once and clean'd it, then he worked for 6 months.
We tried chemical treatment from WURTH, it worked four about 100 Km (approx 65 miles)
Then he started a gain.

Now I contacted dhe Ford dealership in Iceland and they want to start the treatment all ower a gain, but it has costed us 2.355,90 $
We donīt have that money lying around (we rely on donations and are volunteers).

First the oil line to the turbine was sealed with RTW and it blew the turbine.
Now with the new turbine it has been the same tragedy story.

The truck is Ford E-350 2007 model with 6.0 power stroke engine.

Does any one here have any advice four us

P.s. sorry four my bad english.

Regards

If cleaning the turbo worked for a period of time and the the problem came back, I would say that the pitting in the turbo is pretty bad. Best bet would be install a new turbo and be done.
