ok so bare with me as to i am new to the site. i have an 04 psd with the famous 6.0. so far the truck has been a blast to drive the current mods i know of are an air dog, snow system, dual exhaust. and quad pillar gauges witha tranny gage over the steering colum the truck also came witha k&n intake and SCT SF3 programmer. but a few nights ago i was driving down the interstate went to pass an ol boy an the truck yelled at me,haha sounded like a tea kettle was going off when ever i spooled over 15-20psi. i hopped out and looked for puking or anything that would make me think gaskets. well its not that. i got home and pulled the IC boots and found aluminum chips. and instantly thought WTF did i just get myself into. pulled the intake tube off to find an eaten up wheel i believe to be a batmo wheel. so i pulled the turbo and i know this may sound frivolous but i ordered a new turbo and set to install it. can anyone think of anything else it could be?? i am hoping my 2 week old purchase is not a money pit... also the turbo i got for it is a powermaxx. thanks for all of the future help compadres..

In my experience you can have a tea kettle noise and not have coolant loss. I experienced that on my truck prior to and oil/egr cooler replacement.

Just curious, what are your temp deltas?

Post a pic of the wheel as well.
