Default 2006 LLY Stock Turbo

I was on my home last Thursday evening. While passing three vehicles tailgating each other on a two lane highway I heard a bang like a high powered rifle went off. I was roughly at 80+ so had enough momentum to safely get back in the right lane. Wondering what the heck just happened I thought I had blown a tire but my handling was okay. I glanced around at my gauges saw zero boost and then in the rear view nothing but a monster cloud of black smoke obliterating the vehicles I had just passed.

After checking online I figured it was only a blown hose but the photos dictate otherwise. Nope don't need a new hose or a clamp...

I am now researching for a replacement turbo, inlet tube, head gaskets and an intercooler cause I'm sure there's metal everywhere. I'm considering the Garrett Stage 2...
