How to: Recondition your 6.0 VGT turbo

I would like to think that is "sticky" worthy.

If your VGT turbo on your 6.0 Powerstroke is short of power, or making more boost than normal, here's the fix.

And here's how to perform the VGT cleaning:

The size of vanes changes positively as engine speed increases. At low engine speeds, the increased pressure generates higher boost than traditional turbine design.

The Garrett turbocharger changes exhaust air pressure by using piston to rotate a cam that rotates a unison ring which pivots the vanes. Pivoting these vanes controls the size of the opening between the vanes thus controlling the pressure of the exhaust gasses.....
As asked in this thread:

You can order this from just about any International or Diesel parts Distributor.

My two choices are Turbo & Diesel Injection of Indianapolis (they are a sister company of MANY ADS Certified centers) or Wabash Ford & Truck parts in Indianapolis.

Good luck and happy boosting.
