blue smoke at 2500 RPM no power

I just bought a 99 F550. Drove it 250 miles home and had a rear tire blow out.
Now it blows out blue smoke above 2500 RPMs and has low power like the turbo is not working. Any ideas?

There's a possibility your turbo is heading/headed south. Pull your intake tube to the turbo off & check the compressor wheel for damage. The turbo not working & blue smoke are possible signs that a piece of debris made it past your air filter and did some damage to your compressor wheel, putting the turbo out of commission or doesn't function properly.

Black smoke would be a sign of no or very low boost, blue or white is either VERY RAW fuel, or oil coming out of the turbo into the exhaust, and burning,,, (Been there done that,,, oil will eventually pour out the tail pipe, if you indeed did trash the turbo) Pull the intake tube off, and wiggle the intake wheel, (TRUCK SHUT OFF,, of course) if there is much play at all, TURBO TIME!
(Does it burn your eyes? The smoke?)
