turbo issues

ok here goes, my dad has a 2000 crew cab dually 4x4 auto. it has a 4" downpipe, 4" exhaust with muffler and a 5" tip, and an air filter. those are the only mods so far. We plan on going with a gryphon tuner bc he really likes the edge cts but ive read bad things about the tunes with the edge so the gryphon is a better choice. He doesnt drive it much but when he does its long highway trips, or around town, we tow a little bit and when we do its pretty heavy (3 horse trailer, and a 32' enclosed car trailer). ok heres my problem, he was getting a TON of oil smoke out the exhaust so I figured it was a bad turbo seal (i have a cummins and they are notorious for that) so we ordered up a WW and an overhaul kit. We took the turbo off last night to rebuild it. There was almost a 1/2" of shaft endplay! it took out the compressor wheel no big deal we have the WW to put in. It also wore some off the turbine wheel. We have a complete turbo off from a 2001 e350 bus. its got the 1.15 non wastegated housing. Ive been reading for like an hour and ive basically come up with these two options. find a new turbine wheel and shaft, and rebuild the stock turbo with WW. Or swap on the "van turbo." my questions are will the turbine wheel/shaft from the van turbo fit the truck turbo? Is the van turbo a better choice? what all do I need to swap on the van turbo? is the van turbo gonna make a lag master out of it? we have no plans to do any injectors just a programmer. were not trying to make a racecar out of it, just a good reliable rig to drive and tow with, honestly it had enough power the way it was. We were going to take it on a road trip this weekend but that was before we found the worn turbine wheel. Id like to get it fixed so we could still take it but its such a pita to get the turbo out I only wanna do it once. So if we end up waiting on a stock turbine wheel should I get a non EBVP pedestal and get rid of that oil leak? sorry for the long post but I know nothing about powerstrokes, thanks a bunch!

Sounds like you know a good deal, just not these turbos which is what makes this a great place.
If the wheels have rubbed anywhere, I'd want to replace that part as well.
The turbo should drop right in. IIRC, the exhaust housing is a 1.0A/R on a SD turbo. So with the van turbo, you will have a little less low end power/get up and go, but more on the high end. If you're tuning it, I'd think that would be alright, but I have no experience.
Personally, I'd get the non EBPV pedestal AND outlet while I was at it. But you can always just gut them both yourself if you felt like it.

thanks a bunch, first thing I did when he bought the truck was join this site because ive heard nothing but good things about it! I know just about enough to be dangerous lol. What does the EBPV do? im definetly leaning towards the van turbo because it might be better long term at keeping egts lower after he buys the tuner, plus we have it. My cummins had some serious egt issues when towing an it sucked having the power and not being able to use it with a trailer on because the egts would go through the roof.

The ebpv just closes in order to aid in warm up. Doesnt really help though

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.
