Where were you driving this time when it blew? Last time wasn't it towing a trailer up a hill?

Re: once again....TN BB Turbo dead

Are these ball bearing turbos you guys are talking about? Are they Garrett center cartridges or aftermarket?

What about oil pressure? What pressures were you guys seeing?

Last, what type of oil and how long of oil change intervals were you running?

The problem lies with the turbocharger. No need to even consider anything else at this point. It was pulled from the TN line for a reason.

Id like to come to my own conclusion for that - thanks.

There's got to be some reason why these turbos are failing. Bad bearings? Wrong clearances? Bad balance job? Surge issues? Oiling issues?

I would like to know.....

no surge issues and no oiling issues. Go ahead and waste your time coming to your own conclusion.
