new turbo...no oil pressure

Hi everyone, I have tried researching this all day and I have come up empty. I just blew my factory turbo last week and I installed a new Powermax turbo and SCT tuner yesterday. Ran fine all day yesterday but this morning when i backed out of the driveway my oil pressure gauge dropped and the truck quit. now it will not start and i am getting no oil pressure reading on the gauge. there are DTCs right now. I dont know where to start other than take it in to a shop to get it scanned. Please help.

2005 F350 FX4....6.0L, egr delete, oil cooler replaced, STC fitting replaced, 4" turbo back Magnaflow SS exhaust



I was on my way back from a car show going 75 down the highway and the bearings in the turbo started grinding and going out then it locked up and lost all boost.

A bad oil pressure switch will NOT cause a no start. If your turbo ground up the bearings like you said than I would imagine your LPOP sucked them up and chewed up the gearotor in the pump causing a no LPO situation.

not that this means anything but when the turbo bearings were screaming and finally went, i suppose some valve in the turbo busted cause it was pumping oil into my exhaust and into my intercooler and out the exhaust just billowing out smoke as the truck ran.
