Bad Turbo

Two days ago my 04' started having a pretty loud whistling sound under power. The dealership said the turbo was going bad and would order a new one (30,000 miles). Yesterday she blew completely. Bad turbo or bad design? Thanks for any replies.

The 6.0s have a bad turbo design yes. There have been problems with them.
The vaiable vien design i assume is the issue.
