Cut what's left flush with the compressor and drill and tap it for a new barb. No need to weld.

1/8th NPT will be the easiest to get locally.

Easy fix, just put the housing off your old turbo on this one.

Thanks for the advise Scotty I can alway count on you for good advice. were did you source the NPT to barb fitting I am having trouble finding small NPT 1/8 or 1/16 to 3/16 hose barb.

that seems like more work then just drilling out the old turbo. and tapping it.

I have time and will have to pick the appropriate NPT tap and my old turbo isn't dead yet, so I am OK with ordering an waiting does any one have a vendor they like for small fittings, I didn't see what I think I need at McMaster

Thanks everyone for you help.

Its 6 bolts to remove the compressor housing

You really should remove the compressor housing anyway to drill and tap it.
