Default Turbo wheel damage- Risk?

Recently bought this turbo fron a friend. HTA3586
Upon inspection I notice that most fins were damaged with small nicks on the exducer.
Is this something to worry about? Should I get it rebalanced?
Money back?
Change wheel and balance?

Thanks

No way you should run that, and little off balance and it's a bomb . Get it fixed ( replaced the impeller ) before using again.

Think about it , either somthing went though that turbo to do that or the bearings are wearing and causing shafts play.

Something went through it look at the unpredictable/uneven pattern. I'd say manifold/up pipe weld slag.

I agree . If it was mine I would ask the seller why he sold it to you in this condition. It's going to be about 400 to get it fixed. When I had turbo city down south in ca rebuild mine it was 450.

How's the other wheel?

Hope your friend gave you a very, very, very good deal.

Compare the size of the nicks relative to machined portions off the center boss on the exducer - the further out from the center of rotation you remove material, the greater the off-balancing effect it will have... that wheel is 100% beat my friend - I hope you bought that thing dirt cheap.
Up pipe slag at a bare minimum... My ej257 kicked a rod and left a chicken nugget size wad of a piston left in the bore and my exducer looked better than that. My guess is it went through a significant engine failure. I'd be wary of metal shavings in the CHRA... that wheel looks pretty jacked up to me

Will it run? Probably. Will it run long? Probably not... The possibility of costing you up to a shortblock rebuild isn't worth the risk
