I don't have pics or the part... He said it was the one that came from 03-04.5 6.0's.... All I know is the dealer did all of the work to the truck prior to Tuesday....and the Egr system had been apart and cleaned twice by them so Idk.........

I dont see the deal with tis upgrade. Mine with 86k was spotless inside. I guess if you change your oil when you should you wont have a problem with it.

Ford re-designed the oil drain tube with less restriction to the flow of oil to allow for increased oil flow through the turbo.

It doesnt have to do with oil changes. Its more oil crystalisation from the oil being in the turbo while its hot still. This is why you should not turn off your truck before the exhuast temps reach 350*.
