I can't help too much on your IPR problem, besides throwing on a scan tool & see if you get any codes. As for your turbo, the cheapest way to go is to rebuild the original. HVAC Supertech has a detailed guide in the tech files showing how to do it with pics.

change the ipr valve!

I had this problem with my 99 I did exactly what you did and replaced the ip sensor, it had oil in the plug area. I then hooked up the auto enginuity scan system to my truck and found the high pressure oil circuit was at about 3800 psi at idle which it should only be at about 500-700 psi the high pressure hoses going to the heads are only rated for 3500psi. So anyways this solved my problem. I hopes this helps in your decision. If you sweet talk the parts guy at Ford he can give you a better deal on the ipr I know thats what they wanted to charge me but I believe I got for $180.00 cheaper than on-line!
