Need some TURBO help guys

well I got an 04 powerstroke about 55,xxx on it (ik it doesn't get driven a lot) then one weekend we went out and were romping on it pretty hard, then no power an white smoke, so I figured maybe turbo seals because the coolant level hadn't changed at all. finally got the turbo out today and the vain plate was stuck and the shaft was split in 2. is their a full rebuild kit? or do I need a new turbo? what's my best bet here, any input would be great thank you.

What do you mean when you say the shaft is split in 2? Is it the shaft that connects the compressor wheel to the turbine wheel? If so go get your self a new unit

Actually, the pressure will drop, but it raises the baseline by about 10 psi.

You could rebuild your turbo, but upgrading is a worthy consideration, especially if you have some damage from the shaft splitting and the rust.

Deleting the egr cooler would be really easy with the turbo out. I have sinester diesel egr delete and i like it. Blue spring is an update put out by ford, basically a longer fuel regulator spring to increase your fuel pressure.

Just like said above you can recondition and replace parts on your turbo but because of the damage it would be cost efficient to just upgrade your turbo.
