As far as I can find dealing with my own turbo problems, rebuilding the turbo is a quite a task and you must have specialized tools to rebuild correctly. Used and rebuilt turbos are all over the internet for between $100 and $600.

I also found that you can use the Mitsubishi turbo from the Viggen in the Garrett models with one line and banjo bolt modifications, but do not expect a HP gain with out having the ECU reflashed.
