pretty sure i toasted the turbo

Last night when around a turn got on it alittle had 5-8 lbs of boost and then bang, lost boost and white smoke out the exhaust, took intercooler pipe and air intake off and compressor wheel is intact and spins but had oil all over it. truck makes a horrible metal grinding noise like something in the turbo is broke and bouncing around. would it be a bearing, broken shaft or maybe a unison ring broke?? just looking for some help, truck is80% tore down already

Pull out the turbo and look do you have oil in your down pipe?

Good possibilities don't here much about shafts breaking but it could be might as well dig in pull it out and check it out. I had my stock charger break a vein off I got lucky it didn't hit the turbine.

yea its not a blown boot, the noise was god awful like something spinning out of blance inside the turbo. but why would it go out all of sudden, its a reman turbo, and it was put on before i bought the truck a year and 7 days ago!? i got my hands on a 03 to put back in though for $300 bucks!!
