Dead Turbo

I took my 04 to Ford today because of loss of power. They think my Turbo is shot.I installed a Trueflow XDI intake 1 month ago, could that have damaged my turbo? Ford wants me to bring my factory airbox tommorow AM so they can put it on and see what happens.

I have an 04 turbo for sale if you need one and aren't under warranty.

$450 + shipping. Lists for $1200 new. Has 10k on it. I made the dealership replace it when I had the head gaskets done.

Spools quicker and EGT's are about 100-150 degrees cooler. Mainly did it for the whistle. Would do it again in a second.
