    It does.


    edit:
    6.0L Turbocharger
    The 6.0L Power Stroke is equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger (VGT). The 6.0L turbocharger is very efficient & provides quick spooling with plenty of airflow through peak RPM. However, the vanes of the VGT that control the displacement of the turbo are prone to sticking from soot build up. If the vanes stick, performance will be sacrificed.
    VGTs have a tendancy to make weird sounds.. they also function as a sort of 'engine/exhaust brake', as well.

    replacing stock bpv

    so i went and bought an oem bpv to replace the stupid turboxs BOV that came on my car, on the website it says that the bpv doesn't come with gaskets, where can i get them? And will there be anything else i need or is it just a direct replacement?

    the little horn shaped piece of aluminum that you screw in where the outlet pipe should be connected, it ejects the bov into the atmosphere instead of rerouting it back into the system.
