One way to lessen this annoyance is with MHD "wastegate rattle fix" i would only used this if its only a rattle and no other symptoms though.

Previous owner of mine replaced the turbos with standard ones. and its happy running 400bhp with supporting mods.

If i was to go to the hassle of replacing turbos myself and going to keep the car for a while i would definitely put some hybrids in instead. Especially looking at the recent options from Littco. you can easily run hybrids on a standard car, just would need a remap to suit. No need for FBO, unless chasing higher power figures.
