How did you chew the compressor up like that? If it happened while you were driving, the CHRA is probably toast, as well. =\

I honestly don't remember. I've had the turbo sitting around for a few years now.

Last I remember, it worked fine on the car.

What is the CHRA?

Bearings. Center Housing Rotating Assembly.

Basically, the compressor wheel is a chunk of metal that spins at 100,000+ RPM, probably closer to 250,000 RPM. You take that much rotational speed, unbalance the load, and it will destroy the bearings.

How would you be able to tell if the bearings are toast?

Is it a lot of work to replace/fix them?

I took off the compressor housing of the turbo and found the culprit for the damaged fins. There was a piece of plastic that got in there. Everything spins smoothly and without wobbles.
