    Hey, I have been chasing an SEL on my truck for over a year now, I have had the turbo position sensor replaced twice and the positioning solenoid replaced from another truck and my position ckt A and turbo position codes keep coming back. I believe it is time to pull the turbo and inspect it for rust/carbon build up that might cause stickign vanes. The truck is an 04.5 LLY engine with 110K miles on it. It is pretty much stock, would you clean the turbo and re install looking for worn parts at the same time or just put another Garrett rebuild in it or do you have something for sale that I should try?
    Thanks for your advise!

    I saw you had a post a few years back about making turbo compressor wheels, just wondering if you're still doing it

    Hey i just bought a twin turbo LB7 and there was a pretty major exhaust leak off the back of the added turbo. so i pulled the clamp off to reseat it and in there was some oil. i pulled the driver side intercooler pipe off to look further into it and there was more oil. my question is: is one of my turbo seals going bad (probably) and how do i know which turbo it is? How expensive and how difficult is it to fix? if its my stocker then im contemplating replacing it with an aftermarket one.(depending on price and difficulty)
