Well I just got mine last night...everything looks in order as advertised...zero shaft play and everything looks pretty clean. Wastegate bushings are tight....Regardless I would have them re-built to OEM or performance spec. My local turbo guy quoted around $600-700 for a rebuild as long as the turbines look ok... $850 for a set of rebuilt turbos seems like a decent deal to me...plus I will have a core I could probably sell for 100-150 to people who don't want downtime when they want their turbos rebuilt, especially as people get out of warranty. for use as cores alone, these things will rise in value.

He had four more on sale this morning (4/5). I went ahead and snapped up two, but there are two more for someone. I am planning on keeping the car long term, so I thought it was a good deal. Maybe if I am lucky, I can use them as cores for a turbo upgrade. If not, they are back up to mine. I have 63k+ on the clock and drive 35k+ miles per year, so having a back up set sitting at the house is not a bad deal. And yes, he has a good feedback percentage and amount, so it *should* all go as planned. Plus, being in PA, he is close enough for me to drive to if an in person discussion is needed!

Nope, but they should be pairs from the same motor...you can also cross reference the part numbers online to make sure.
