Where to get 6.0 turbocharger parts

Hello,

Today when I was working on my truck ('04 6.0 - early model) I found that the turbocharger compressor vanes were chipped on the edges. The bearings are going out of it so I need to rebuild it. I have found the rebuild kit from gpopshop.com but I can't find anyone that sells the compressor wheel.

Does anyone know where to get a new compressor wheel/vane set up for the early 6.0

I found one - bullseye batmowheel, but from what I have read it doesn't seem to be what I am looking for.

Thanks for your help!

By the time you buy all your parts and then spend the time rebuilding it, you'd be better off going with an upgraded turbo like a stage 1. Check out Mad Turbo Werks. Stage 1 for less than $800 and there are a lot of threads on hear with info on them. The guy that builds them is a member on here.

This was posted in the motor problem forum. Comp and turbine wheels are harder to find parts. As stated in both posts, an upgrade is a better option.
