05' with new turbo

I'm looking at an '05 and the owner said he just had the turbo replaced. Is this a red flag? Should I be looking for other issues tied to this?

Thanks

With a 6.0L there could be tons of issues. A replaced turbo isn't neccessarly a red flag. Depends what they used foe turbo and etc. Could have saved you some $.

I would not be concerned at all with a changed out turbo. But before you buy any 6.0 you need to invest $150 and get a monitor. Learn how to use and read the monitor which can save you thousands.

Cheapest would be the scanguage. (150) Most guys run the Edge cts (400) But either way they will pay themselfs back multifold!

A turbo swap could be related to NOT letting the EGTs spool down to 400* before shut down. I had a turbo replaced at 40K in my then new to me 2003. I've put 60K on the current turbo shutting down at 400* religiously.

High EGT at shut down will eventually coke the oil in the turbo.

I have a Scan Guage II, but for boost, fuel psi, and EGT, I rely on Auto Meter.

The cheapest is actually an android device with the "torque app" and a bluetooth OBDII connector (ELF 32 something on eBay).. This totals out to under $20.00.. Works great.

It covers just about everything you need to monitor..
Newegg.com - Mini V1.5 ELM327 OBD2 Bluetooth Interface Auto Car Scanner Diagnostic Tool for Android

That's the adapter.. Torque software is out there.. There's a free version and a paid version.. You want to pay the $5.99 or so for it. It lets you check engine codes and reset them as well. Since it's R/W I'm sure it can eventually be used to tune the engine as well...
