My guess would be your VGT solenoid which controls your turbo vanes. Have it looked at under your 100k powertrain warranty, if you still have it.

Thanks, but my warranty is up. I took it to a diesel shop, they recommended putting a Garret ball bearing turbo on it, with an egr block off. Is it worth it or do you have any other suggestions?

I wouldn't go with a turbo unless they have actually diagnosed that is what is wrong with it. If you know of someone near you that has Auto Enginuity, I believe you can command the VGT to open and close. That should tell you if it's your VGT solenoid or your turbo.

Does it sound like this truck in this video? This guys said his turbo housing was destroyed and he ended up needing a new turbo. Did you try unplugging the egr valve?
