john we can actually send it to garret and have them rebuild it.
even if is not build by them they will rebuild it.
Aerodynamics is for those who can't build engines

If ford pintos are not fast then why chevy's have to use there parts to make them fast?

If the wheels are in good shape just order the bushings, thrust bearing and seals. It is mostly a simple hand tools job.  Make sure to clock the compressor wheel and scribe the nut to put it all back in the same relative position and bob's yer uncle. google it, the parts are cheap and there are how to videos. I would recommend you make sure the parts are brand name stuff as the only word of caution.

I've been reading all kinds of info about rebuilding and buying the kits. What concerns me is balencing everything and the big fear of what happens when I do it wrong and send the parts throug the head.

Isn't the shaft brocken you yours? if so, it'll need to go to Garrett, It'll be pricey, and I think it needs a exh housing with a waste gate, might be cheaper to buy new right from Garrett with the correct seals...
