I think I Blew my turbo

Well looks like I finally blew my factory turbo on the way to work last night. It has been kinda howling instead of whistling for a few months now. On the way to work tonight I stopped at a light and noticed lots of blue smoke puffing from the exhaust. I was leaving a pretty good trail but I still had good boost. Well a Duramax passed me and I couldn’t help myself, I flipped the chip and floored it, heard a very bad noise and then I had 0 boost and chugging lots of blue smoke and no power. I’m fixing to leave work and try to make it home then call Beans and order a D-66.

Well I made it home, left a very thick blue fog all the way through town. Took the intake off and I can wiggle the impeller, feels like the shaft is broken. Called Beans and he said he would ship it right out, should get it Monday. Now I just got to figure out how to fix the stripped bolt in the up-pipe Y collector while I’m changing the turbo and I’ll probably try to remove the EBPV and delete the EBPV actuator in the pedestal too.

Supposed to flow like 30% more than stock and hold 40 psi boost without breaking, my last stock one was around $700 and the D-66 is $1350. As far as I can tell it is the only aftermarket turbo that will fit on my early 99 without changing lots of stuff. Its the one at the bottom of this page 99-03turbo

Naw.. that ain't expensive at all! Great turbo option for the early 99's!

Expensive is TN BB, Injectors, Tranny, and new motor in 3 months


Alabama - which bolt is stripped in the collector? I might be able to help you out there.
