You definitely want to give it a look. Remove the intake piping to the turbo, check that it spins freely. Press the shaft on the compressor to the side while turning the nut on the compressor shaft and make sure you don't feel any scraping. Check for any evidence of marks where compressor has been scraping housing. Check for in and out movement of shaft.

I'm in the process of rebuilding my turbo right now. I ordered a kit with the upgraded Banks wheel from Ron's Turbo Service out of Utah. Had no trouble getting to turbo out of the truck and only have $220.00in it, not as bad as it could be.

I used the same kit from Ron the turbo guy. Ron states that the 7.3 turbo is the easiest one to rebuild and he is right. Its really easy. The hardest parts I had were removing and installing the turbo. Do yourself a favor and order the kit.

Just pay attention when you disassemble the turbo on how its put together and you wont have any problems. Ive probley got 3000 miles on my rebuilt turbo.

i had also had a strange noise that sounded like a bearing in the turbo. It ended up being a hole in the backpressure sensor tube making the noise.

My turbo sounded like it was stuck when I was climbing a hill with my 11500lb 5th wheel. I have a 02 F-250 with 122K mi. Any ideas what might be going on? Thanks.
