I have seen that recently even in another thread.
there are a number of turbo gurus here.
perhaps we can get one to share from their wealth of knowledge.
looks like time for a billet wheel to me
I will see if I can locate the other thread I saw a similar turbo on and

I am replacing mine with an MTW stage two in fact I am off to pick up the install kit in the morning.
I would look into rebuilding that one myself just for the experience if I had a "spare"
I would love to redo one sometime.
I just got too good a deal on my upgrade to worry about doing it myself.

I will keep looking later but I cant seem to find the thread with the chewed up wheel and I swear I just saw it within the last month?
if I remember right a bolt got lose and sucked in and chewed up the turbo adn was found in the exhaust in the cat maybe?

I did find this from one of the turbo guys on egt's

A slightly chewed up turbine is hard to notice unless you pull and open up the turbo. I have had a few experimental turbos that had this happen. Everything seemed ok except for pretty high egts. I pulled the turbo and the turbine was chewed up.





Here are a couple of mods that will help:
11 blade single plane billet wheel upgrade
Ported intake manifold (number 1 choice)
Upgraded intercooler
Water injection

not sure if that really helps you but?

Usually it is a heat issue, but it could be from corrosion and once you loose a piece from vibration, others will follow soon.
