to be truthful I havent pulled it out to look properly, but smoke is bellowing out the exhaust and there's a lot of play in it. was thinking a new one would be the easiest and quickest option ?

the journals/bearings for the ht10 are cheap eh (if they would fit) but depends on the amount of wear on the shaft i guess eh :)

ooh okay, Im gunna have to do my homework :)
seems like they are rare as rocking horse poo and fetch crazy money eh jakob, i think i would put the busted one in a box for safe keeping, and fit the far more common vw/peugeot/etc GT1549 and enjoy the car

Yeah, people are asking stupid money for them, for a rebuild im looking at £700+ ...im stuck with 2 bust turbo's now :eek: do you the GT1549 will be a decent replacement..looks like a completely different shape to the one's I have here i think..
