    Articles - Engine, Other
    Hello all, Recently removed my turbo to clean vanes and unison ring from P0299 pow boost. Truck would start with no turbo spool until reaching a certain RPM or would eventually after leaving at idle for a bit... VGT would stick at 85% until then. I assume the heat (and maybe oil pressure?)...
  3. Turbo?

    6.0 Motor problems
    After a little research I believe my turbo is the problem. When I push the skinny peddle 75% down while driving the boost goes up too 30 and the truck falls flat on its face. I hear a loud spinning/rubbing noise coming from what sounds like under my feet and guessing it is turbo farting out...
