What aftermarket turbo for 06 6.0

Had my truck at dealership for 3 days and they cannot figiure out why I keep getting low boost code. I had the turbo cleaned last year and it has been good until lately. The mechanic says the vanes are free, but can't tell if it is the turbo or solenoid that controls the vanes. No air leaks or other issues that he can find.

So what aftermarket turbo do I need and else has to be done to make it work? Ballpark would help also

If what you wrote above is what you heard, then find another mechanic ASAP!

Page 35 of the 03 bible. VGT is electrically actuated and hydraulic controlled.

•The VGT control valve is commanded by the
PCM, based on engine speed and load. The
magnetic field generated by this signal
moves a shaft in the control valve. This
movement meters engine oil through the
valve to either side of the piston. This design
feature reacts quickly to changes in demand
based on driving conditions. When one side
of the piston is pressurized, the opposite
side is vented.
• Depending on which side of the piston is
pressurized, the vanes either open or close.
A cam follower at the end of the valve
assembly provides feedback to the valve
allowing it to reach a neutral position during
times the vanes are not commanded to
move.

You can read more once you get the 6.0 bible.

Sorry that I said that wrong about it being a solenoid, He checked the oil pressure to see if actuator would have enough hydraulic pressure.

Apparently some areas have better dealerships than others, maybe I'm just in a small market area, I wish I knew.

Did a little reading about the Stage 1 after your post and seems like good option. Thanks for the good info.

Hmmmm after re reading your post if does sound like it a solenoid, an electric coil controlling fluid flow thru a valve.
