I am fully aware of the problems with turbo but I not being of such luck to be under warranty want to discuss tearing down turbo cleaning and rebuilding. Who here has knowledge or can at least point me to a thread that might discuss this? thanks,

In a high humidity area, if not run on a consistent basis, the turbo vanes will start to rust a bit. This will cause them to start sticking. When this happens, you get either too much, or not enough boost, and can start surging, or blowing black smoke, wasting fuel.
The best thing you can do for these trucks is to use them on a regular basis. Get it out on the highway for an hour or two every other week at a minimum. 30 40 miles a day isn't bad for a truck like this. The way to keep a 6.0 healthy is to get it out & let run at 1700 to 2k rpms for long periods. It's what they were designed to do.
