Turbo Oil drain tube

I'm having my 04 turbo pulled off and cleaned this week. I'm also having him replace the up pipe with an aftermarket upgrade and replace the turbo oil drain tube with the newer 07 style. I was just wondering if the new style drain tube makes that much difference or if the older style really was the root cause of that many turbo failures?

Well this just got expensive! He pulled the Turbo off and evrything was rusted and pitted so mi guess I get to pay for a New Turbo. Truck only has 44K miles on it. If its not a Dodge injector pump for $1,500 its a Ford Turbo for $1,500. I just can't Win. I'm not sure the part numbers but I know my New Turbo will come as a kit with all the gaskets.

Try cleaning the turbo first. Especially with such low miles I wouldn't think it would be that beat up. Also it's dirt cheAp for that updated drain tube. If you'd like I can get you the part number.

I was going to just clean it but my mechanic who is doing it after hours told me I should just replace it. He said that if I just clean it the rust will return because it is pitted so bad which will eventually lift a head possibly even with head studs down the road depending on how bad of an over boost the sticking veins may cause.
