Stock 6.0 with damage to turbo vanes.

So...I blew my turbo apart at the compressor and exhaust housings when I failed to sufficiently tighten the clamp joining the compressor and turbine housings. In the process, three of nine vgt vanes were damaged (see pictures). Is there a way to replace just the vanes? None of the "turbo rebuild" kits I've seen feature these. On another note, I'm contemplating de-burring the trailing edge of the vane and installing them as-is staggering them so that there is a damaged vane in every third position. Am I crazy? I there any reason to think this won't work? I understand there will be some small leak when they are closed, but I can't think it would be enough to make a huge difference. Sanity check please.
