What to look for?

Some of you may have seen my post about low boost before so I made a boost leak detector and found one in the boots that goes into the motor. I ordered a new set of boots and will be replacing them next weekend. Im gonna take the turbo off and check the up pipes good as well.

My question is....
What are some things I need to check and look for while Im in there?
What do I need to look for turbo wise to make sure it and all its components are in good condition?
Any tricks to making this a smooth, painless job?

Thanks in advance cause I know Im gonna get some good advise.

Good advice, hmm just keep at it. also if you have never took the turbo off the clamp on the back will be a ***** to get off... Thats the only thing that is really a pain. plus lay a blanket or somthing down for you to lay on. i'd change the O rings while you have it out.

I have not took the turbo off so this will be my first rodeo. I see people talking about play in the shaft. What kind of play? Does that mean its wobbly in there?

yeah real wobbly. a little wobble is fine. Just make sure it spins freely. and just look at both wheels. Have you thought about guttin ur pedistal and ebpv while you have it out? Its pretty ez.

Ok well on the ebpv there is a butterly in there that helps warm up the truck on cold days, but restricts a lot of air. and the pedistal just gets deleted cuase it has the rod that controls the ebpv. if you have money for them you can get a hi flow ebpv and non ebpv pedistal or like 250ish. There is a few write ups on how to delete the pedistal.
