Please Help Turbo Damage!

Let me begin by saying this is my fault.

That said. I have an issue and I could really use some outside help. So leaving the gas station the other night I went to get out of the center lane and I had to step on it to pass a car (I do have a Flashpaq 1855 on Performance mode) truck is stock with 207K miles. The truck began to take off then it fell on its face. After I noticed that the truck sounded like a vacuum cleaner. I got home and popped the air box. The air filter was pulled up. Bought the truck in August and never checked the filter (hence this is my fault everything else checked out new and thought a tune up was just done) which was caked in dirt . The filter was still complete. The next morning i got a new filter and drove to work. Still sounded like a vacuum. I pulled the intake and found all my compressor blades chewed with some contact marks. I ordered a new WW. The housing is not in too bad of shape. SO after all that my question is can i get away with just changing the wheel or am I in for more fun? No real excessive play in the turbo shaft and spins freely. Thanks!

wow! thats some serious chewing. all that metal is in the engine now. pull the whole turbo and clean it extremely well before you put the new wheel on. do an oil change before you start that thing again and after about 500 miles change the oil again. ( though technically it shouldnt have let metal into the oil being that it went through the intake but it could still cause other damage that could send metal into the oil ).

My jaw dropped when I saw that...

Pray you don't need an engine... remove your ENTIRE intake system and clean it, intercooler too.... get as much of that metal out of there as you can...

Hope for the best,


for comparison... look at how much metal is just gone... looks like you sucked in a rock or something

First of all, thanks for your replies so fast. Yea I was thinking a rock as well. I am kind of hoping that it all got stuck at the beginning of the intercooler. Drove it about seven miles since the incident and no smoke from the exhaust so I am hoping I dodged a bullet there. Is the turbo hard to take off? I do have the compressor side off already. Just the wheel is still on.

Use an air wrench and just zip zip zip a few times and it should loosen up. That's all I know about turbos! Haha

Uh no... definitely do not do that.

Removing the turbo is easy... 4 bolts on the pedestal, then unclamp the up pipe and downpipe, oh and remove the intake spider which is just more clamps and boots.
