As long as the damage isn't crazy you can swap hotsides no problem. There is an index pin so it's nearly impossible to clock them incorrectly.

Video of scrapes on the inside of the hotside housing, and the beat up blades that did it.

Can I swap this hotside housing over to the new turbo and run it or are those scrapes to much?

Quick vid showing Downpipe & Uppipe mating surfaces; that's after cleaning, looks the same as before I cleaned it.'

Do I need anything else besides the metal gaskets for the dp and up? Do I need some "spray gasket sealant" or something like that orange/copper stuff?

And lastly, I guess theres no type of seal or gasket involved with the 'v-band' clamp? I just swap the housings and clamp, done? Hah. If I shouldn't use the old housing on the new 'ebay turbo' I'll be lookin for a used vf40 guys. If none in great condition are available ill have to get a bnr i guess?..?
Thanks.

I swapped the turbine housing of the old turbo onto the new turbo's CHRA/compressor housing and popped it in.
She started up fine. Fixed a small coolant leak and that was that..so far.

Oil and filter change tomorrow.. and .. probably at LEAST(!) once a week for a month

Thanks so much for everyones help and patience.
