About to tackle my turbos... Need advice!

My 08 6.4 is putting out pretty heavy white smoke on idle (fully deleted) and I hear that this is from the turbo leaking oil into the downpipe. So this summer I plan on pulling my turbos and rebuilding them with the eBay kit (ford does not offer a kit...). Does anyone have any advice or helpful tips on doing this? I will be doing it with the cab on.

Also when I do that I plan upgrading my 4" downpipe bak exhaust with 5" turbo back. Any tips on working with getting the factory downpipe out and the new one in? I hear it's a tight fit...

Any advice would be great! Thanks!

are you doing a cab off? If so it should all be pretty easy. ON the down pipe i hear you have to beat the cab in a little with a hammer or maybe that was for something else.

I plan on doing a cab off this winter and installing Industrial Injection 08-10 Ford 6.4L PHAT SHAFT 71/58MM TURBO. Ya it is a little bit more but i figured if it has to be done do it right haha. If you rebuild you should install the batmo wheel

what is the benefit of the batmo wheel? looks like it lowers egt's, is that it?

lower EGTs, quicker spooling, smoother boost delivery. On Cummins and Dmax trucks equipped with just a tow tune and batmowheel, they picked up around 30-40 hp over just the tow tune

What he said and my turbo kit will come from PTP. In my old 7.3 i had something like the batmo wheel but it was call wicked wheel and it made a big difference in throttle response

I would also install a batmowheel. Also are you sure its a turbo seal and not the headgasket?

I'm hoping it's the turbo seal. I plan on taking the downpipe off the turbo and looking for oil. Any way to check if it is my head gaskets?

Best way if you have the tools is to pressure test the cooling system.
