Bent and Pitted Blades

I did a whole bunch of work on my truck yesterday and just for Sh!ts and giggles took off my intake tube to the turbo. Much to my surprise, I found a few bent blades (towards the corners) and pitted blades all around. I think the bent and pitted blades are the source of a whining noise I frequently get. Is there anything I can do to repair these blades?

I had a couple of dents and dings in mine also. My remedy would bo to just throw a new wheel in, I am sure those blades are at a specific angle and it might be close to impossible to repair. I bought an X-wheel off of xtremediesel.com for 50 bucks and it was really simple to install.

No you will need a new compressor wheel. You can find them for about 60 bucks. However thats the least of your worries sounds like you have had poor filtration and hopefully your motor hasn't suffered from it.

Change the wheel in the turbo and drive it.

Folks just got my 06 f250 superduty out of the shop under warranty. Check engine light came on 22,700 miles. Technician stated it was the turbo. Repair document states disassembled turbo, the center is corroded and pitted, ring binding defective, replaced ced center section and reinstalled, road test ok. After speaking with the tech, he told me for this not to happen again, DON'T IDLE THE TRUCK. Now what the heck does that mean? I guess idling the truck to much causes the turbos to corrode and get pitted. Does that make sense to anyone? I'm pretty much familar with the 1996 chevy diesel motors as have worked on them. But this ford is still under warranty so I haven't tore into one yet. Just thought I would mention this (fyi) to anyone that idle their trucks, if this is true.

huh?!
I havent had a Powerstroke before, but all the diesels I have experience with you can idle...
I've ALWAYS been told the exact opposite, never shut off the engine if the turbo is hot, but idle it down first..
I'm anxious to hear other ideas on this one...

The 6.0 turbo is different from the 7.3 turbos. The 6.0 has variable pitch exhaust blades and if you leave it idleing a lot it carbons up the blades and they stick, thats the problem you had. If you need to idle a 6.0 for an extended period of time you should do the high idle mod so it keeps the exhasut warm and doesn't get carbon in there like that. Also turcks that sit a lot can get rust in there that can cause the blades to stick. The cure for that is pretty simple though... take it out for a spin and let it warm up regularly.

Another term that Ive heard describe that it "coking up" The turbos like to build up deposits on the exhaust side and then they fail. Ive seen it more with the early 6.0's and those with factory exhaust that the owners down ever open up.
I feel that with the 6.0's you have to get on them and work them. Not like the 7.3 where you can baby them or run them. They are more temperamental.
