Yea we fixed it. Took the turbo off, the shaft would move in and out about a half inch. It chewed up the compressor wheel. And completely ruined the turbine wheel. We ended up going with a van turbo that we had on bus out back. We rebuilt it with a WW and rebuild kit we bought and intended to use on the original turbo. You will need an adaptor to delete the EBPV flapper on the bus turbo if you go that route. Truck runs a million times better no noticeable lack in spool up and it pulls harder on top. MPGs got better too I think all the old turbo was was an exhaust restriction.
