Turbo for 04 F250 6.0 4X4

I just had my oil cooler go out on me. The job was too big for me to take on (no way to flush my coolant system). Before it went out I noticed a lack of power at start up before the engine warmed up. My diesel guy told me when they got the turbo off the blades were not turning as freely as they should and this was most likely the cause of the lack of power. He said it was nothing immediatly but I might want to start looking at replacing it in the next few months. My question is this, how much is a new turbo verses a rebuilt one? Would it be worth the money to step up to an after market turbo like bully dog or banks? Any info and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ryan

Lack of power at start up you said before it warms up?

Do you have normal power whe the engine is warmed up?

You should check out your turbo yourself first, before you just buy a new one IMO. Remove your intake components and inspect your compressor wheel on the turbo. It should spin freely. A little in and out movement is OK, but there should be no side to side play in it at all. It should not contact the compressor housing at all either. Also inspect the blades on it to see if they are in good shape. They should be free of knicks and dings. Just a few things to look at first, then you can start talking about replacing the turbo.



And to powerstroke.org!!

Southpaw,

Thanks for the welcome! As for the turbo, I inspected it and the blades spins freely but not as freely as a new one. It has a little drag to so instead of spining arpound 10-15 times it only spins 2-3 times The blades look good.

As for the lack of power, at start up it does lack power but onced warmed up it seems to not lack any power and has plenty to spare.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Any shaft play? or conatact with the housing?

May just need to rebuild it as opposed to buying a new one. Just a thought, hopefully someone who knows a little more will chime in.
