yeah true, but to me its hard to justify putting $400 into a stock turbo, if i had a FP or gt35 type of turbo that wouldnt be bad,

but i see all these rebuild kits on the internet mostly ebay for td05s for about 50-80

sounds like the one of the main differences is they have balancing machine, and since its a smaller turbo it cant be too out of wack, unless i bent a fin. but i dont think so.

so the way i look at it is:

spend 400$ and get it done professionally, and balanced,
spend 50$ and get it done by myself and unbalanced, if it works than YEH for me, if not then ill get it done professionally, but its worth a shot.

right? input? or anyone know where to get a nice rebuild kit.
