P0299, turbo noise and deltas
2005 Excursion 6.0L PSD, 102K miles, stock as far as I know.
EOT/coolant delta approaching 15* at 65mph on the highway, throwing P0299 when towing my RV, and there's a noisy spin-down of the turbo when I shut the engine off.
So I'm thinking about pulling the turbo off & cleaning it, along with the EGR valve - but my research (in places like this forum) says I may have to replace the turbo.
Was looking at the Garrett replacement turbo and was wondering if I can really just bolt it on, or do I need to beef up stuff (like head bolts)?
Plus since I really hate to redo stuff, and I'd be pretty well into the top end of that beast anyway ... should I go ahead and do the bullet-proofing (EGR delete, etc.)? Or should I tear it apart and look for the telltale signs of impending disaster and evaluate then?
