yea i dont think you have anything to worry about if all that went through is dust..but if it was decently sized particles, i would spray some air intake cleaner through the system and see what happens

a little bit of carb or brake cleaner would work.. but not if the turbo is on the truck.... just take both inlet and outlet off and hit it with some compressed air

I seen your sig at first and thought "wow, those heads have some DEEP chambers" then i looked closer... i feel like a complete MORON



When i got a turbo from the J.Y. i just sprayed WD-40 thru it a few times. I ended up popping off the housing and cleaning them that way after more and more stuff kept coming out.
