High pitch squeal

Sooooo.....the turbo had a high pitched squeal so someone replaced it...and the squeal went away? Or the squeal is still there after the replacement and goes away when it gets warm? I'm lost. I've read your post 6 times.

The squeal is still there, turbo wasn't the problem - sorry for not being clear.

High pitch squeal

How are you sure the turbo isn't the squeal?
I've fought a bad 6.0 turbo before. It squealed like no other. After 5 times of the company rebuilding it locally, I told them to kick rocks and I wanted the money back.
