2000 7.3, Possible Turbo issue?

-Also posted in 911 forums.

Got a pretty big scare here. Just got stationed up in indian head md, dont really know any mechs or shops yet so ill see if you guys can help me pre-diagnose the issue.

Was pulling out of CVS this evening and got on it, nothing crazy maybe 15lb's of boost, when all of a sudden it began to sound like it was defueling then this huge "POP" like a hose blew off or something, immediately following the pop the engine started running extremely rough (boost gauge fluttering like crazy, lack of accelleration power) and shaking VIOLENTLY, to the point of being hard to drive. Also is sounded like an exhaust leak or something was making a really loud "clanking" noise.

Immediately pulled into a parking lot popped the hood scanned everything above and below (left the truck running because i CANNOT get towed back onto base) and couldnt find any leaks and all hoses were secure. I bit the bullet and made the decision to drive it back to base appx. 15 miles, when about half way back the clanking noise stopped, however it still shakes really bad at low rpm accelleration, and the boost gauge is fluttering like crazy still, and EGT's were 100-150 degrees warmer and total lack of power in every gear.

I dont have any tools down here they are all still in storage @ camp lejeune, so im searching for someone in my new unit who has the hook up but until then anyone ever experience anything similar?

6637mod, 4" straight exhaust
-No white smoke
-When it did happen there was ALOT of black smoke
-Fluids all look good, oil is good and coolant lvl is proper

Also if anyone knows anyone or is close to the Indian Head/Waldorf areas whos interested in tackling a project feel free to shoot me a pm, i have a big cedit card, just didnt want this to be the reason i start my build on this truck and dont have a 2nd vehicle to drive yet!

Would the dealership be the best place to go and get codes pulled? Gonna check the oil to see if theres any coolant in it as well. I have a buddy who lives appx 2.5 hours away gotta wait till payday and gonna attempt to make the trip there, just wanna get codes pulled and try to pinpoint the possible issue before getting it into the shop. Were thinking possibly head gaskets.

Also after thoroughly inspecting the whole vic today, loud clanking noise almost 100%sure is from an exhaust mount furthest to the end of the truck broke, causing pipe to bang off shock/drive shaft, could also be the culprit of the massive vibration, and still wondering if that port on top of the exhaust side of turbo should have something connected or a plug in it?

Yes there should be a plug in there with a clip as you can see in this photo i took of mine to show you. it's for the EBPV shaft, it looks like it is there so you can replace a bushing. I hope this helps. good luck!!

Anyone know what the name of that plug is? how un-safe is it to drive (limp around) without that in there?

Tonight I was running my truck hard, and when I shut my truck of it sounded like you could hear the Turbo bearings spinning around? Or is that just the fan in it?
