    Get it looked at to see whats actually gone? if the housing has cracked youll need a new turbo if its something inside then it could be reconed.

    In this case I'd probably use the rule you buy cheap you buy twice, be better to send it for recon but entirely up to you.

    i made a thread similar a while ago and i ended up ringing around about ten different turbo companys. Midlands Turbos wasnt the cheapest i found however, the feedback from people on the forums that have used them is enough to make you want to pay that little bit extra. I think the difference from them to the cheapest was only around £50-£70.
    They seem like a reliable company and comes with 1-2 years guarantee, i will be purchasing my reconned turbo from there soon. i believe it was around £370 which included vat and delivery but they also do a thing for around £150 where they pick up your turbo and fix it if possible?

    Wouldn't touch them cheap ebay parts! a friend of mine did it and the quality was awful, it went on him again within a few months of fixing.
