You can typically get a HX35 for $300 or so used, and they are a better turbo. An oils scan doesn't hurt, especially for the price. What color were the flakes? Try a magnet on the dipstick oil to see if they are ferrous?

Sounds like you already figured out the problem, or at least enough to do two things before anything else: Replace/rebuild the turbo and change the oil.

Where the oil goes, there is no Aluminum. A Brass/Bronze bushing instead. Aluminum in the oil system of a 24V Cummins........can't think of anything.
