Turbo Failure? advice please

So here is the deal, was at a red light - light turned green, I went at normal speed the turbo was spooling fine, all the sudden I lost power but everything was still running. I pulled over checked all the hoses and fluids everything looks perfect. started it up again and she runs fine untill I get on it I have no power and and it's smoking a dark black/grey smoke. smelt the exhaust and it almost smelt of burnt oil. I suspect that the turbo froze and the oil is leaking inside and burning up. Am I far off base? can there be other damage that I have not thought of?

I may be mistaken on the smoke.. I'm pulling the hoses to check the turbo. Did yours still run? mine starts and idles I can drive it around, just no turbo sound

I have heard of turbo failure causing bad black smoke. It could also be a stuck EBPV.

my engine still worked when the pump failed, it's just that the fuel pump couldn't pump enough fuel for me to go much faster than 35 mph or so.

pulled hoses on intake side, compressor wheel frozen. The good news is that Oil PSI is good, oil smells good and feels good, no blow back from oil filler and the coolant is clean. did find some oil in the compressor side. I hope it's just the turbo.

even if it's just the turbo, that means even a rebuilt one is about $500. news ones from Ford are around $1k.

More then likely it is your turbo when you push out solid black out tail pipe it is.
