Talked to the guys at Bullet Proof Diesel and they said they can do a turbo R/R in under an hour....
That being said Ive done it once so far and if I was to budget my time for the job I would give my self couple hours maybe 3. But Ive only done it once. Wasnt "hard",juz a step by step job. U CAN DO IT!!!

An experienced tech can do an R&R under an hour as stated. First time I'd give yourself 3 or 4.

Got questions about your 6.0?

Thanks guys another question for ya, where is the turbo seal located, the reason I asked was because I noticed oil on the front of the exhaust housing. It looked like it was leaking from a bolt? I have an industrial injection phatshaft turbo so its not a stocker

Make sure ya get the turbo mounting kit from ford. Picked mine up for like ten bucks or something. Has new mounting bolts, oil feed gasket and drain oring. You might as well update the oil feed tube and drain tube. My drain tube was in pretty sorry shape and leaking. Oh and be careful with the vgt pigtail. Mine was brittle and snapped a prong, the replacement plug is cheap too. Anyways had mine off a couple of times, pretty easy. Also make sure the downpipe and clamps line back up on reinstall. And make sure the outlet boots are oil free and tight. Drink a beer and take your time. Good luck!

I've done it in under an hour but that's hustling and everything has to go right. I don't like to rush like that normally

I recently had the same issue. But it was because of my CCV mod. I was about to pull my turbo again and inspect it, but corrected my mod and all has been well so far. If you do pull the turbo and it has oil on the exhaust side, well then from what I have read, yes that is the idication of a blown oil seal. Don't know about the fat shaft turbo, but there are rebuild kits for the standard 6.0 turbo.

Not the greatest pic but here is the leak.

On a side note I did run a piece of tubing from the dog house to the intake it has a little bend that might be restricting the ventilation could that cause it? Come to think of it that's when it started.
