The bearings are going out in my turbo and it’s leaking oil. Is anybody selling there stock turbo still in great condition? It’s my daily and I have my family with me a lot so I need a reliable replacement. Thanks everyone!

Did you ever get a turbo? I replaced mine and it turned out the OE was still good. I put in an upgraded bearing for my added boost. And I did a new turbo assembly cause I thought I'd solve a code issue that was still there after the new assembly. I'd be happy to sell you the turbo and the new takeoff oe bearing or give you the sourcing for the improved bearing. Along with info on how it's installed.

What was the issue you had and how did you solve it?

Mine cracked and went out a few months ago. I got a new turbo from eBay and replaced it. Only about 2000 miles on the new turbo but all seems fine thus far. It took me about 5 hrs to do the job. If I had to do it again I could probably get it done in 3. The one problem I had was the damn oil return line leaking. Be sure to get a new gasket, new bolts and throw a little orange rtv on it when you put it back together.
