Firstly, go easy when checking for play. Secondly, some play is normal. Excessive play isn't. Are you getting any bad noises? Does the turbo sound clean at shutdown? No ticking or anything when shutdown?

I see you have a boost fooler. Do you have any extra fueling and how many miles on turbo and how many times have you been at 30+ psi?

Well, you've got quite a bit of mileage on her, especially if you hit 42-43psi alot. Isn't there any turbo gurus near you who can check her out for ya? That psi is more than the stocker is meant to handle. Out of it's efficiency range and drive pressures are probably high.

dont really think 170 is high considering it had warranty to 160 from the factory. took it to dodge they said drive it and if it blows my extended warranty would cover it but for now i think the boost fooler will come out till i know for sure

It isn't high in normal applications. It's high if you've been working the turbo out of it's range it was designed to operate at. Know what I mean?
