Grinding Noise when starting

I have a 2001 f350. Lately when starting my truck it makes a grinding noise. It has also lost power when driving/towing. Could this be my turbo? Any ideas. Also, if this is the turbo what is a good aftermarket replacement?
Thanks for your time

the grinding is probably a starter mine did the same thing and i put a starter on it cured that. as for loss of power dont really know but the ebp valve could be open so it may not be building boost. just one suggestion

2002 ford f 350 with banks 4 inch exhaust, afe stage 2 air intake and a edge evolution set on the tow setting.ats ported housing and a wicked wheel with a turbo master adjustable wastegate and a south bend dual friction kevlar and ceramic heay duty towing clutch.
