So do any of those pieces of the wheel make it into the motor? Or all caught in the intercooler or what

Yeah, mine blew a few weeks ago and I'm saving up for an aftermarket replacement. These are the worst turbos ever made, bar none. It makes me wish I bought a dodge again because in all the years I drove a dodge/cummins, I never had any turbo problems. None.

Ok out of all the blown turbo's we have seen the metal never gets past the intercooler.
But you should take it off and soak it in simple green and rinse water through it. You will see all the metal stuck to the walls because of the oil laying in the bottom of the bucket.
Or you can do it on the truck with a garden hose and spray nine thats how some of the guys flush them. Mainly because the ic piping is held on with band clamps that have to be cut.
Its also a good idea to pressure test it and make sure the cooler was not punctured. We have not seen this but it is possible.

The sad part is besides the large handfull of blown turbos, there are hardly any other mechanical issues with our 6.7s

I haven't had any issues with mine yet... Haha.
I've been pushing it pretty hard lately. Although I've been saving up for a after market turbo as well for whenever mine blows and if it doesn't blow I will upgrade it anyways so I don't have to worry about it.

That thing is toast!

I've been told removing the stock turbo is a b****! Is it pretty hard or just time consuming?
