Be sure and check truck before you purchase

so a buddy of mine just bought an 05 6.0 about 4 months ago truck looks and sounds great pretty snappy and on and on...so we are helping him change his oil this weekend and decide to look at the turbo it looks like someone threw a nut or bolt in by the compressor wheel and started the truck we got a new turbo coming and all should be ok scaning the oil as we speak and checking the pistons but just thought i would share with the community on how important it is to check out what you are buying
