Excellent Resource for Turbo Rebuild

I now have 3 300D's and growing. My most recent purchase in an 85' that sat for a decade. I got it running in about 2 hours but quickly discovered a blown freeze plug. I took the entire turbo assembly out of the car in order to install new freeze plugs. Since I had the turbo out, I decided to rebuild the turbo.

Long story short, I could not get the turbo to separate, no matter what I did so I sent it off to Tim's Turbos in Virginia (Tim's Turbos - Turbocharger Rebuilding and Sales)

Tim did an outstanding job of rebuilding the turbo and for less than $400. It didn't make sense for me to do it at that price point, plus it has a warranty.
