Turbo question

Have a question about my turbo spooling up. Issue started on a trip from Atl to Maine pulling a 8.5x16 enclosed trailer (approx wt. 5-6K). Toward the end of the trip the boost wouldnt come up... you could feel the engine lug, I'd drop out of the thottle and get back into it and you would hear the turbo spool up. Been doing this for about a week or so now. Seems to be doing it more often too. Power and mileage seem to be going away as well. Not so sure about mileage because I just went from a 4" lift and 35's to 6" and 37's.

I am thinking my turbo is going.... any thoughts? Truck is an 06 with approx 69K. Running DJ's tow extreme when it happened, loony wild back in Atl. Heads are studded and running 4" exh w cat deleted. Other than that the truck is stock

If turbo is shot, what turbo should I replace it with, not going back to stock.

sounds like sticky veins, it's still under the 100k warranty, so you could get it fixed or replaced by Ford .

But I've heard really good things of this turbo. Industrial Injection - 6.0l upgraded VGT-Hybrid +300 cfm (+4 mm compressor) #60F Hi Performance Diesel
