Servicing/Maintaining the VGT

I have a 2004 PSD. I have read about servicing/maintaining the VGT on my truck.

Does anyone have a link to a thread or specifics on how to do this?

Thank you

wow that is some really great info. What does the VGT learn procedure consist of though?I have an 04 but it is a late 03 build and I assume I would have to do the relearn procedure. Is it something I can do or does Ford have to do it?

Like RWalker stated, is this something I can do in my garage?

Is their a relearn process or something I have to do the vehicle's ECM?
