You should be able to hear it whistle when you jump on it.

If it drives it works... I unhooked my intercooler boot off the turbo once for a smoke show.. It smoked but took me about 1 minute to get going 30mph for fear of melting pistons lol ahh the good ol days

You have a Duramax and you don't know if the turbo works? I highly recommend you read the manual for your truck and read extensively into these forums to understand the maintenance for your Duramax.

You don't really need it, its just that shiny/spinny thing that you can't see through the housing on top, don't really need it. You should do a turbo delete system and sell that thing!! I'd give ya a couple hundred for it.
