the turbo is probably the most commonly replaced thing on the 6.0 as a whole currently. Usually the problem is the truck ISNT getting driven hard enough, which causes carbon buld up in the vaines of the turbo and makes it start to bind......

Sounds like the last owner didnt get on it enough....just tell him to drive it hard and he will be just fine.....U cant baby these trucks, it causes problems.....Marc
