i was on the freeway today and when i was driving with the RPM just above two it sounded like my turbo wasnt running constantly instead it was like a pulsating kind of noise any feed back on the problem would be extremely helpful and appreciated!!

huh doesnt seem like it would be a cooling fan, but seems they kick on and run more in the 6.0, were you driving it pretty hard or getting into the go pedal a lot?

That doesnt sound like the fan. Not sayin anyone is wrong but it really sounds the the vanes of the turbo fluctuating. The vvt of the 6.0 is crap. if its not loosin any power I really wouldnt worry about it. Our 05 KR Dually used to do the same stuff. If it does wind up goin out I would highly recomend changing away from the vvt turbos

Exactly what i was thinking, the turbo vanes fluctuating...has happened before on my buddys 6.0, and from what you described thats exactly what it sounds like
