I bought this turbo in 08 and found out from FP that it was about to go through catastrophic failure. Although it had no shaft play the turbine and compressor wheel were hitting the housing etc. My friends told me I was ####ed. So I made a few calls and found out a little know fact. Garret has an BB exchange program. No matter what is wrong with the turbo as long as the ball bearings are in decent condition they will replace the entire CHRA assembly. I got a brand new 35R balanced BB chra, turbine wheel, and comp wheel. They also thoroughly cleaned the housings. The cost for everything was $480 shipped!
