If you have enuff in/out play in the shaft so that you can feel it it is very dangerous to drive the truck, if that compressor wheel nicks the housing it will come apart and be ingested by the engine. Other than Ron's I think powerstroke shop would be your best bet they run around 800

Thats how mine went out. I suggest to start driving it only when needed since it will completly go and where do all those parts go? into the motor. You can only really wait for ron, dealership(expensive), wait for the d66 or switch over to the late 99+ turbo. BTW, on the stock early 99 intake plenums do not have a screen in them to prevent big stuff from getting stuck in them, the late 99 style does have it. I was kinda shocked that they put that in there.

If you are going stock you should try and milk it until Ron has one. By far the best deal. I know BDP has them listed on their website I believe for $750 ish for an early 99. Sure wish you could be one to be informing us early 99 guys on the Dominator 66, to bad on back order.

FWIW I don't think any blade chips will make it past the intercooler. I would be worried if I had an OBS truck without the cooler.

What happened in my case is that the loose bearing caused the turbine blades to touch the case on the hot side and chip a few corners of the blades that made the turbo sound like a police siren at boost's above 10 psi. I think the metal on the compressor wheel isn't quite as brittle and prone to chipping off small pieces, but I'd be concerned about gouging out small pieces of the softer case and sending those through the IC.

I guess you're aware of this option...

Early 1999 Trucks: These trucks have two options. The Intake plenums on the stock Early '99 (Pre 12/98) are smaller in size than the 3" plenums used on the stock '99-03 trucks. You can either purchase an early '99 H2E kit that attaches the plumbing to the smaller intakes, or purchase the late 99 H2E kit and purchase the 3" OEM plenums to complete the package.

It's very $$$, and it's not clear if you use the original up-pipes and pedestal or have to change those to the 99.5 versions?

The shavings went into the motor and some probably got caught in the intercooler im sure, i havn't had a problem yet with my motor. the way my turbo went out was a hole in my intake that was allowing dirt in. Dont get me wrong, i heard in my exhaust a click click clickX25 when i shut the truck down. I got scared check the shaft felt the play, then I had to drive it to my buddies shop since he had the turbo and all the compentents to switch it over. I probably drove 200 miles with the turbo hitting the housing, because at first i just thought something was wrong but i couldnt pin-point it at all until one day i got out of the truck before the turbo stopped and i heard the clickin. Right after i changed out the turbo, i changed the oil.

BTW the h2e turbo kit is nice, but you will need injectors since that turbo on stock injectors(excepically the AB codes in the early 99), will be laggy. It come with new up-pipes since you uses a flange style(i belive L-10) instead of a marmon clamp. It also comes with intercooler pipes, pedestal mount, intake "Y" pipe, downpipe and intake pipe.
