What's your experience in turbo rebuild? That thing is not only pretty tricky to take apart, but also can be very fragile when wrongly hold.
Just on Ford Forum one member wanted to upgrade compressor wheel, what is pretty straight forward job well documented on youtube.
Yet experienced DIY let the holding screwdriver slip and bend turbine wheel. Now the guy is on the market for new turbo.
Fully rebuild turbo should be balanced. Do you have equipment for it?
