6.4 bad turbo

So me and a buddy was tearing my truck apart the other night to replace the head gaskets and put arp studs in it, and when we took the intercooler off, oil started pouring out, we came to find that the seals were bad on a turbo and one turbo has shaft play in it.

So I'm needing some answers, As of right now the gaskets and studs sit me back and I don't have the money to drop for new turbos and this is my daily driver.. Is there somewhere I could just buy a rebuild kit for it?? Ive seen the new compressor wheels, would putting them in fit my shaft play??

Im needing any help. Thanks

I suspect the oil in your intake tract is from your crankcase ventilation system. Oil in the intake tract is common.

Are you sure the seals are shot? Like he said could be from CCV

Oil inside the intake is from the CCV, this is normal, if you have shaft play then I believe a blown turbo is in your future

I'm pretty sure it's the seals on my high turbo, it wasn't just a small amount of oil, I'm talking close to two gallons of oil, it was a state truck before I bought it, and looks like it has had the cab off before. So no telling what all they have had trouble with

Yes the turbo has some shaft play, side to side and front to back a little
