Serious Turbo Issue

I have a 95 PSD with 88,xxx miles on the truck. I'm 2nd owner, purchased it with 72,xxx miles bone stock. It was a farm truck up until I owned it. Only mods I've done, which have been within the last 1500miles are K&N Intake, edge evo programmer, and a single stack.

I pulled my turbo inlet pipe off a few days ago while starting to do the glow plugs on my truck and while looking into the turbo I noticed something wrong. Many of the impeller fins are bent/peened over/dented and there is about 1mm of shaft play on the turbo.

Does ANYONE have an idea why this would have happened with this little of life on the turbo?

Also if I plan on leaving the mods as is, should I get a DT66, beans quickspool 1.0, or just go OEM replacement?

Help in both these areas will be greatly appreciated I am in a pickle with the truck as it is now and have no idea what to do.

Seems like something went down in there and ate it up. it can happen

if you wanna go for bigger injectors the snag yourself a D66. if you wanna stay stock and maybe an intercooler get the quick spool. or if money is a crunch then stock

K&N's dont get a good wrap with diesel's. I've heard way to many people on forums, and in real life (loggers, truckers, ect...) that say dont use em. If they arent properly oiled, they will let stuff into the intake.

I'm not saying thats what caused it, but if it was fine 1500 miles ago, that sounds like your culprit....

Beans D66 is only 2-300 more then an OEM and well worth it i belive. Take the KN back and pick up a 6637.
