yeah a friend of mine has a '93 same engine but his has well over 200k on it and his turbo just blew. no warning at all. When I looked at the truck initially the first thing I did was take the intake elbow off and check the turbo for shaft play and it was really solid, so I'm not really worried. It does leak a little oil, I'm almost POSITIVE its the cooler lines, those are known problems with these trucks, so a new set of those will be on order soon as well.
