01 Turbo

Hello,
I just got my new Edge CTS for my 04/6.0 (down with headgasket repair) and couldn't wait to play with it. I hooked it up to one of my work trucks. 01/F550 with 248,000mi on it.

I bought the truck used a couple years ago (maybe 20,000ago). Always knew it had a turbo problem as it was underpowered and the build-up of gunk on the turbo,tubes etc.

We drive it short dist's and the power never bothered me. I thought maybe I had a tranny problem also because the truck has gotten worse and felt like the tranny was slipping, The truck also weighs 17,000lbs empty so I never thought it would be a rocket ship

Anyway, with my new CTS I checked the codes and (P1247-low boost) showed up. Then I drove it... the highest boost I could get to register at WOT was 9psi at about 3,000rpm in 3rd. I never hammer on this truck an that was the hardest I ever got on it. Regular driving the boost was at 1 to 2psi

What is normal for my truck, an can the turbo be rebuilt easally for do I just buy a reman turbo?

Thanks

you can rebuild it but a reman would be simpler, this is the 94-97 section btw, and are you sure its the turbo, check all your intercooler boots, up pipes, just check your engine bay for soot deposits and you could find your boost leak, good luck in anycase

ohh its fine, just check your intercooler pipeing before you go get a turbo, and check all the boots, look for soot deposits underhood to find your boost leak, can you hear the turbo spooling?

There is soot all over the turbo itself and both tubes. the turbo is covered in once wet now dry oil/dust

I really don't hear it spool now that you bring that up.

We just drive and baby her. I tore my 6.0 apart to do the headgaskets an ARP studs and all the normal upgrades and have been driving the 550 while my trucks down and felt bad that she has never (cam sensor once) let us down. I change the oil and fluid on the reg. but didn't wanna get into the turbo problem. I just dig hole and insert head.

I can't right now take this truck apart with my truck being down but as soon as $$ an time free's up I'm on it.

I never looked into fixing the turbo an thought (while head was in sand) they would cost $1,000 for a rebuilt one.

After living on this board since I dove into the hg's repair I learned to not be afraid.
