Stuff that costs $XXXX to fix when you goof should be trusted to pros or people who don't need help and sadly I get hollered at for that thought process.
Hahaha, I have to agree with your thinking there. I remember when I was one to ask about removing stuck bolts and such...you know, when I was 16, lol. Boy how time flies...

Thanks.
And yessssssir! I meant to scribe the shaft/compressor wheel so I could just line them up on reassembly...but I forgot.

I've been talking to Chris at CRT Technologies in St. Louis about balancing it. I wanted to drop it off Monday and have it back by now...but that didn't work out, lol. I should be dropping it off tomorrow and getting it back early next week. Apparently, they're working on some new custom billet wheels for big Diesel turbos right now, and obviously that gets done before my turbo gets balanced, lol. Anyway, he said $50 for a balance, which isn't too bad IMO, or $100 for inspection, assembly, and balance. I'm opting for the balance only because I wanted to make a video of assembling it myself!

Here's part I of III:
