might be time for a turbo....

hey guys,

the reason for the post is i need some confirmation on my diagnosis...hopefully i will be wrong with it, but it seems pretty self explanatory...well, my truck is a 01, 171,000 miles roughly, dp tuner, ats housing, exhaust, blah blah. a couple months ago it started making an ever so slight "grinding noise" when i would turn it off...when you would normally hear the turbo unspooling or spinning through the exhaust....i thought, oh sNap....time for a gtp38R....but....i thought i would wait...as the bed is falling off because its rotted so bad, i need a rear diff cover, instrument cluster, trying to buy a house...the excuses were endless...well miraculously, the noise stopped. i thought great. im good???....so here i am a couple months after the first noise started happening and the same thing...randomly...no real other indications my turbo is failing, just after i turn it off it sounds like an electric drill...lol.... so...is it safe to say its time for a rebuild?

Take the intake off and pull on the turbo shaft. If it moves more than a 1/16 of an inch then the oiler rings inside are gone, and you need a rebuild.

You should have no, or basically VERY little play in and out, up and down....

ok...my next question is...what do i do.....? i know i can buy a rebuild kit for like 130...that will fix my problem and i should be all set for a while...but...i was planning on doing some of rosewoods 238/30% injectors in the spring. i would like to not have to pull the turbo off again because i know the stock turbo wont last with those injectors. should i upgrade the turbo to something else? rebuild my stock one or sell as is and get a van turbo? im trying to save for a house and the truck needs a bed bad, cab corners, doors, etc....i want to do it right but still not break my bank account...(which is going to be hard to do.)

Get on diesel site.com and order the gen 2 wicked wheel. Bill at php has found some amazing capabilities to easily clean up stage ones on a stick turbo and keep drive pressures down, while boosting power....

Order the rebuild kit and do the rebuild. I did mine. It's easy

I have a lead on a freshly rebuilt van turbo. I think I'm going to buy it and slap it in. Maybe I can buy that new wicked wheel too.

I have been reading it, but I think they are all done accepting "trial" trucks...I will have to call them and see if i coukd try it out. I had the old version in my last truck. Liked it. I will definitely love the new style.

Well just to entice you as to what this wheel could do for you with other mods to your truck.....

A friend of mine on here, lowdown....he's in the same chapter I am in, and he's got a 7.3 dually, with 250/200s and a 38r turbo, fuel system, hpop system, and live tuning by bill at PHP....he put down 572 on the dyno before this wheel swap.....now he puts down 603 with JUST a wheel swap! That's incredible....

I cannot wait to get mine.......
