No power seized turbo

First off just wanted to say hey everybody im new to the forums I have an early 99 that doesnt have any power. I had a scanner put on the truck and it threw an idm fault code. Got back home from the test drive with the scanner plugged in and the turbo was seized. I have no idea what would cause this the truck has 140k miles and there wasnt any signs of play in the turbo at all and then all of a sudden it just froze up. Took the old turbo out and im replacing it with a d66 and blank pedestal. But im afraid that if theres an oiling issue that it would freeze the d66 up too. Also a side note my icp is covered in oil but it hasnt failed yet. The cycles were fine

ya, thats correct. your going to want to change the ICP too.

With the turbo freezing up, inspect the "condition" of the compressor wheel. Any "chunks" missing from the blases, you'll want to inspect further down the air travel for the missing pieces...ie IC.

Also I think the reason it froze was because i was being an idiot and ran it hard then shut it off right away quite a few times

No the thing wont move at all. I think it may have gotten really hot and then i shut it off and that caused it to freeze or something
