Depends on what is wrong. Do you need new seals or do you need all new internals(compressor and turbine wheels, and shaft?)

There is a guy in arizona IIRC that had a general refurbishing kit for around $125. I can't remember the anme though.

Just make sure you get a kit that's correct for your turbo. In true ford fashion, they made 3 different versions of the same thing.

And make sure it's not just the crank case venting. If it's a LOT of oil it'd be the turbo. But just some could be the CC.

Tell them the year of the truck and you will get the correct kit.

What he means is the crankcase vent, it is located on the drivers side valve cover and hooked to the bottom of the air filter tube. You could re-route that(look up ccv mod) and see if the oil stops. Clean everything up very good and see if any oil returns. Thanks for bringing that up jesilvas, never crossed my mind.

Another thing, is the truck blowing out any blue smoke? That's another way to tell, and has your oil level dropped any?
