What parts did you need to replace when you rebuilt the turbo? They sell rebuild kits at turbocity for about $100, this would replace all of the bearings, seals, clips,etc. It is also possible to buy the bearrings and seals seperately and replace only what is necessary. I have not opened up the turbo yet so I don't know what to replace. Is it best to just replace everything here or is that an overkill?
The problem this turbo has is oil leaking into the exhaust side and coming out the exhaust pipe in liquid and smoke form. The shaft spins freely but has about 1/8" of up/down play.
Thanks for all the help so far!
