6.0 With sticking Turbo??

I just bought a 2003 6.0 and it has run pretty good but lately i was driving it and i lost power for a short time, i noticed that it blew a little black smoke, but soon after i regained most of the power. It has happened twice in about 3 weeks. So i took it into dealership and they plugged it into the computer and no codes, so they took it out and drove it said that my turbo got stuck open at 30 psi. They are saying i really need to get new turbo or else it could blow my cooling system?? Any suggestions. Could it be my EGR Valve??

How many miles are on the truck? I doubt its the egr valve you can plug the system off and the truck would still run just fine. The turbo would be my guess. And it very well could ruin the cooling system because the boost increases compression which increases exhaust pressure which runs through your EGR cooler. the turbo is very easy to install.

Do you ever run the truck hard? I think you might have a combination of both going on. If the EGR is "coked" up, that can cause power loss and black smoke. I wouldn't replace the turbo. I would remove and clean the EGR valve and see what happens. If it still does it, remove the turbo and clean the vanes. The turbo can be removed in about 1-1.5 hours with normal hand tools. If you have any questions on how to remove it, just PM me.

I run the truck pretty hard i guess. I use the turbo a fair amount because i have heard that helps to keep things working properly and i do pull pretty good loads with it, so it does get worked pretty good.
