new to me 93 idi turbo

hey everyone, so i am new to the idi system. so i bought this truck last friday, it had a oil leak coming from under the turbo into the pedistol. put a new o ring in it and now its leaking from the bottom of the pedistol. i have heard and read of people getting a pcv rubber boot and that fixes it. and i noticed while i had the turbo off the exhaust flange gasket (metal) was worn out and barely together. does anyone know of a fix for that as well? i went to the dealership and they dont have anything what so ever. i need to get this truck up and running and cant do it with the oil leaks and i would hate to put it back on the road knowing that the exhaust leaks. anyone know of a cheap easy solution???

yes the rubber boot does work had a buddy do it where her got it or what it was i am not sure!!!! For the exhaust figure what kind of kit that it is and u should be able to order one through the company that made the kit!!! It is an aftermarket kit being that it is a 93 and they were not a turbo truck!!!

Its a T3 exhaust housing, any metal gasket should fit it. Getting that turbo off the pedistal is a pain huh?

They did offer a Factory Turbo in '93 and a non. My buddy had one we drove 500,000 plus miles.
