Turbo Wheel bad? *Pictures of it*

Alright I have been having loss of power issues and lots of white smoke, and my brother had a 5.9 and the turbo went bad and had some of the same problems and its got me worried, so I pulled off my boot and found this (In pictures) the edge of my fan blades look like they are worn off from rubbing but there is no play at all in the shaft but still worried, anyone know anything about it? Take a look at the pictures. Thanks.

Truck is stock 1996 7.3 with about 287,000..

If there's no play in the turbo shaft, and it spins, the turbo is likely NOT the culprit. My $0.02.

They look ok to me too. That turbo is eating a lot of oil though. Delete that CCV quick. For S&G get the truck to operating temp and take a video of the the engine with the oil fill cap off. I'm wondering if there is excessive blow-by.

Now what do you mean by blow by? What could cause that?

It means that on your compression stroke, your piston rings pass gas into your crankcase and come out of the oil filler cap.

This happened to me this weekend, climb under the truck and check the bolts between the manifolds and up-pipes. I had two loos bolts on one side and two missing bolts on the other. With all the exhaust escaping it was hard to spool the turbo.
