Isssue is sudden loss of major power. lots of blow by. oil spiting out exhaust pipe. loud as **** seems to be working hard for nothing. Had a no start few days back but great ever since . will vibrate alot when on the peddle. not throwing any codes at all? Then 2 weeks ago a friend was doing a oil change for me after ilet him use the truck for half the day. he got drunk . overfilled the oil by 3 or 4 quarts .then drove it 30 miles to my house . then i went to jail that night . ill leave it at that.i was told its not a repair but restoration ? 30k restoration??? any advice please.

$30k restoration? Nope...never. You can buy a new/rebuilt one for less. Blowing oil out of the tailpipe usually means o-ring failure in the turbo pedestal, but there are other failures. Possibly injector o-rings with the vibration, but there is much diagnostic work to do first. Have you run the KOEO and KOER tests that Forscan can do?
