I had just put in a new (but used with under 100k miles) turbo in my 06’ 6.0. After test driving it for the first time, I pulled the intake off and noticed the fan blades on the turbo where chewed up like a chew toy after that one drive. Is it safe for me to drive the truck with chipped fan blades? I’m not noticing any driving differences except for slightly higher but not alarming egts. And I believe my mechanic hooked up the oil feed line incorrectly which starved the turbo of oil which caused this to happen yet caused an oil leak on right below the turbo and dripping down both sides of the transmission.
Did you prime the turbo with oil before starting the truck? This is one of the most common mistakes. Just rolling the start over without starting the truck will build oil pressure and prime the oil galley.
