Buddy of mine installed a MM, turbo back exhaust, and intake on a 2011 6.7 this past weekend and today he's got oil coming out his exhaust, he was cruising at 75 MPH and then stepped on it - appearently went 'poof' and the smoke went from black to blue. He shut the truck off immediately. It will start and run. Will it be his turbo that's gone?

I haven't seen the truck or I'd have the turbo apart already

Yes, unfortunately he got a 2011-2012 Cummins with a bad turbo. There have been a handful (look on the Cummins forum) that lock the the turbo vanes open or closed and cause the turbine shaft to shear. Then it leaks the oil down the exhaust and makes a mess! Might see if the dealer will warranty it, but most don't know it is a common problem since they only sale 100-500 trucks and possibly only one of those have failed.

Yes-turbo is gone. There is a youTube video showing that happening to a Cummins.
