Its been 3 weeks since I got my truck back due to my blown head gasket. Around 60-65mph when I give her a little punch I hear a loud swooshing vaccum like sound coming near the turbo. I took it back to my mechanic and he said there was water in the turbo. I was like HUh?

Hmmm, never heard of that one. I have a constant whoosh sound once I get to 10lbs of boost. I have a cut in one of my intercooler boots, check those just to be safe.

Have somone hold the pedal down and keep it about 2k rpms or so and take a spray bottle with soapy water and spray all of the piping after the turbo if you see bubbles forming thats probably your problem. As for the water in your turbo if there is water there its most likely a egr cooler problem but I have never seen this cause your problem this will cause a lot of white smoke and coolant level dropping. If you cant find a intake leak and your coolant level isnt dropping take it to a different dealer or if there isnt another one near you demand that this will be considered a come back and should be done for free. That is if you never had this issue before.
