03 6.0 turbo problem solved

i figured i would share this piece of info it might be useless!! but it seemed to solve the problem i was having with my turbo i removed the cat on my truck. i could hear the turbo whistle from time to time but nothing like it should and on top of the no whistle i would get blue smoke and a bad stutter at around 2,200 rpm this was a intermittent problem. it would come and go but normally was present more than it was gone. well i parked the truck and let it set all winter and drove my dodge gasser because i couldn't figure the issue out yesterday i cut out of work early and had access to a snap on motus well i cleaned the vgt accuator it was pretty nasty on the tip then test drove the truck after doing the relearn procedure that everyone on here talks about well it still didnt fix the problem i couldnt find any bad injectors and or anything wrong with the truck or anything out of range well i found the vgt test and i did this test on the turbo holding the truck at around 1200 rpm and working the vanes to 85 percent i did this twice and on the second time the whistle came back and has been back the truck runs 100 times better ive put 400 miles on it in the last two days i hope this info might help someone with the same issue
