    Well I've got the turbo now, but it needs more work than I thought, there is minimal play in the shaft but large cracks around the waste gate and the intake compressor has bent blades


    Where can i get replacement parts from? Are there any upgrade options available while its in bits?

    And he will rebuild it for you properly if you pay him.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    This turbo sounds scrap tbh. It'll be iro 400 or more for a new / recon I reckon. New hotside, compressor wheel , bearings and seals , assembly and balancing as a minimum requirement to fix yours.

    True but you will never learn anything getting "others " to do it, from his first post he wanted to have a crack at it himself, but if its cost saving, i agree it would be better to buy one already done, as balancing is not cheap..

    Yea I wanna have a go myself partly due to cost but I want to learn too, if it lasts a year after I rebuild it I'll be happy to be honest.

    That's about twice what I had planned, what are my options around the £200 mark?
