Truck gas died again, losing gallons of oil!

I have wrote in several times trying to get suggestions, I am losing 2 gallons of oil in 40 miles, I run my own business and this truck being down is KILLING ME, I have replaced all 8 injectors, and O-rings, and it is still smoking escpecially when it builds boost/under load, I have heard talk of turbos sucking the crankcase dry and it makes sense, but it only has 20k on the turbo, would a broken internal part let it lose this much oil or is it the turbo? IT IS DRIPPING OIL OUT OF THE EXHAUST & THE MUFFLER IS FULL!!!!!!!! THANKS, Brad

Brad- Replace the turbo. It sounds like the turbo shaft seals failed. If you remove the downpipe off the turbo and it's soaking wet full of oil thats a tell tale sign. Dripping out the exhaust is too. Once the turbo is replaced it's gonna smoke like a motha for a while until all the oil is burned out of the exhaust. Heres a tip. Buy a FORD reman turbo. They are good quality and you get a two year unlimited mile warranty with it.
