Blown turbo, what do?

Hi, it seems as though I blew my turbo yesterday. I was pushing it hard and after I turned it back on a few minutes after turning it off it looked as if I had a professional fog machine inside my exhaust. Thick and white for a couple of minutes then it subsided and it comes back when I boost. What do you guys think I should do? should I try to rebuild it or let it sit there while I save for a new upgraded turbo. Any suggestions on budget turbos?

Sounds more like and EGR cooler and/or head gasket failure than a turbo failure. Any white residue around the degas bottle?

Would a head gasket cause any noticeable power loss or vibrations? the truck seems perfect besides the white smoke. thanks for those two other causes gonna go do some research now lol

Could also have an injector issue. That can cause a miss that feels like a vibration. The most common thing on the 6.0's are EGR cooler failures and that definately causes white smoke.

No. Blew my head gaskets twice and never noticed a loss of power. Just the sweet smell of antifreeze (I say that tongue in cheek)
