Turbo Wheel

Hey everyone, I am starting to tear my truck engine down because i am looking to replace my stock injectors with stage 1's. I pulled the turbo tubing and found out that my wheel is either bent or just really scratched up... Can any of you clear this up for me please? Thank you for your insight. A little backstory... My stock intake had a hole in the side that wasn't taped up or covered or anything when I first purchased the truck so the tard that was the owner before me could have ruined this. I spun the wheel and it doesn't scrape or stop, it spins normally. I know that the scratches are a bad thing. My question is: Should the wheel be bent like that? Thank you. P.S. I already replaced the intake with a cold air intake!

That wheel is AFU! Maybe a new turbo to go with your new injectors now?

Something more than dirt went through there, that impeller is hurt pretty bad I would definitely think about getting the turbo rebuilt.

I think the previous owner messed it up... the engine still runs great! but that impeller is all scratched up. My question is; should the impeller be bent like that?

No, that's why I say you should get it rebuilt. If it has been running like that for any amount of time it could have hurt the bearings.

Agreed that turbo is done. You could rebuilt w/ a new wheel though but I'd have a shop do it so it can be rebalanced.

Ah damn! I don't have money for a new turbo at the moment I just spent money on stage 1's! Do you all think that just the impeller and ONLY the impeller is messed up? Or the whole turbo is finished?

It is one of those hard to tell things without taking it apart and inspecting the bearings and shaft. You may be able to replace the impeller and be fine but then again maybe not. With the rpm's that a turbo turns I would rather be on the cautious side. Here's a picture of a superduty turbo of what can happen.

Right on. As far as I know, this truck has had this bent wheel for a while. I still get boost, but I know it isn't good for the wheel to be like this. Especially since I am putting in new injectors and looking to get a chip. I think instead of a chip I will have to look in to getting a new turbo. It's not a big deal, I just don't want to push that turbo with the bent wheel. I am confused as to what to do I wish I had an unlimited supply of money! Don't we all though? haha. Well... thank you all for the information. It is appreciated!
