Unison ring...is it too far gone to reuse?

Well kept gettin low boost code and with my open exhaust i could here when i would lose the turbo so i took it apart to clean it. The unison ring was completely siezed to the turbo, i had to massage it off of there with a small pry bar. Anyway just sandblasted the ring and saw this wear. Ive seen picks of a lot worse ones, just wondering if its worth the 125+ bones for a new one or just let this one ride.

Don't run a pad over it. It will corrode at the speed of light if you do. It has a coating on it that needs to stay there! Use foaming carb cleaner and some rags to clean it up an it will run just fine.

You could clean it up a bit for for how much the coast it'd be better to just get a new one and not have to worry about it. I'd rather pay $150 for a new ring than a grand for a new turbo

Thatnks fur the input...ill do some polishing to it prob with some 400 or 600 grit paper, thats a lot finer cut than those conditioning discs. Any coating that was on that ring was long gone before i got in there. That thing was loaded with corrosion

That's not too bad, if I opened that turbo up it would probably go back together with that ring in it.
