Easy way to clean turbo

I am wanting to put a smoke switch on my 04 6.0 but have heard this can cause a lot of soot build up on the turbo vanes. Is there any easy way to clean this off?

Having a smoke switch is stupid. It accomplishes nothing and looks bad for trucks like ours. That is the kind of thing that forces states to do more emissions testing.

I agree Not to mention the wasted gas, cleaning the turbo if you dont do it you dont need to clean it as often/ever.

What's the deal on getting the turbo off and putting it back on. I know I could easily to the cleaning but I'm a little afraid to take the turbo off the engine.
