Unhappy my turbo turned into an oil pump yesterday!

Driveing home from work yesterday my truck started to blow blue smoke out the tail pipe like a fog machine! At red lights it would smoke out the intersection. I wasnt far from home so i limped it back, the right side of the engine was coverd in oil and a oil water fall was running down onto the ground. i had oil dripping out of my tail pipe. I talked to a buddy at a local diesel shop he said the turbo went, He recomended to just rebuild the stock one with an upgraded compresser wheel. What do you guys think? Should i stick with that plan or go alittle bigger? Moneys alittle tight but there is some saved.

Thanks, Mike

Re: my turbo turned into an oil pump yesterday!

are you planning on doing anything to the truck in the future? If not i would just rebuild that one and run a wicked wheel. If you are going to do oil and injectors someday i would vote for the 38r.

Re: my turbo turned into an oil pump yesterday!

What injectors are you running? Tunes? How do you use the truck, how much towing? Do you want to up the hp if still on factory injectors in the future? This well help get you some better answers.

02-350. CCSB - Drivetrain by Stauffer, fuel by Swamps, air by Barder, tunes by Gearhead.
04-250. ECSB - In the shop...7.3 swap.

Re: my turbo turned into an oil pump yesterday!

the truck is stock, just intake and exhaust with a small 50hp chip, id like to go with a gearhead chip this summer. The trucks my daily driver, im not looking for big hp. I dont tow anything bigger then a skid steer. When the injecters go i was told i would be better off sticking with stock ones.

Re: my turbo turned into an oil pump yesterday!

For now I would get a rebuild kit. It would be a heck of a lot cheaper than a 38R. You can get the rebuild kit pretty cheap.

Beans Diesel Performance (Powered by CubeCart)

What year is your truck? If it's an early '99 you can't just drop-in a 38R.

If you are not looking for big HP I would run a set of 'Stage I' single shot injectors. They are a little louder than stock but will probably get you a little more HP while also providing a some increase in mileage with some good tuning from Gearhead. If you decide to put a 38R or something else in down the road you could easily get some new tunes as well. As I am not sure how aggresive you could get with the Stage I's and a stock turbo and make it last.

While you have the turbo out make sure to check the up-pipe donuts to make sure they are not leaking.

Re: my turbo turned into an oil pump yesterday!

Looks like you have a 99 if that not a 99.5 other than a straight rebuild I think Beans D66 would be a perfect match up for what your stated goals are or the 38R if 99.5+. It will give you about the same step up as the GT38R do for the later model 7.3 powerstrokes. The D66 is a direct bolt on.

I don't think you can do better than Matts tunes. If you can afford to buy a new turbo I think you will be very happy if you choose to upgrade rather than do a rebuild and still be stuck with the same turbo. Combine that with tunes from Matt or Beans( maybe get some package deal with the turbo and chip) I think it will put a long lasting grin on your face every time you drive the truck whether towing DD or whatever. If you ver wanted to add injectors at a later date the turbo will support that and benefit you that much more.

Re: my turbo turned into an oil pump yesterday!

If it is that bad I would bet you turbo is junk. I have replaced quite a few stockers and the ones that were dripping oil out the tailpipe either had the turbine shaft snap off, or wheels that were hitting the housings. Just pray that yours is not like this, and a rebuild should get you by for a little while longer.

Good Luck

Loctite will not hold up to the temp of a turbo. If you want to be sure of never backing out, drill the boltheads and safety wire them.
