Turbo leaking

Ok, I threw up a post a week or two ago about only being able to pull 12 lbs of boost from my early 99 7.3 psd. Well tonight I got a wild hair and thought that the little plastic tube for the boost gauge might be bent, kinked, or broken, So I replaced it with copper line like one would use for an oil pressure gauge on a hot rod. I noticed that the new line made the gauge operate much smoother than the plastic line. But upon routing the line I noticed an alarmingly large amount of soot inbetween the two sides of my turbo, give me all your input and tell me what ya think, how do I fix it?

Up pipe are leaking. Try to give the bolts at the baby butt a turn or two first. If they don't move don't force it unless you have time to drill out a broken bolt or two. If they need replacing I would use Car Quest part #17250. They seem to work the best.

I'll have to post pics at the office tomorrow, I plan on replacing my up pipes, but where its leaking is where the exhaust side of the turbo mounts to the centersection of the turbo. Its hard to explain without pics, I'll post them tomorrow mornin.

dude, it looks like the top bolts are gone. Pull it before you damage the turbine wheel and inspect it!

That was a very common problem for the 99 trucks, the bolts would slowly work out of the exhaust housing causing that... Dennis at ITP diesel sells a bolt kit with wires to keep it from happening again... Or you can Locktite them and hope for the best!

so can I just pull the turbo when I re-do my exhaust, put new gasket in there and some new seals while i'm at it, new bolts, smasher home and be done with it?

Should just need the bolts... might not need to pull the turbo since they worked themselves out while the turbo was in there! I'd say get the bolts from Dennis and locktite them things!
