Whats you'r opinion?

Ford 7.3 powerstroke 94-97 OEM Garrett TP38 | eBay

I am in a dire need for a new turbo on my truck. I eventually want to get whats in my sig but thats way down the road from now! So I figure I spend 500 after the refund for the core and it will last me till I am ready to do what I really want to do? What do you guys think about that? Do you think think turbo looks alright and will function as good as an OEM turbo? Thanks for the input!

4 inch lift, DIY 6637 Air Intake, 35 inch BFGoodrich All Terrains, 3 gauge pillar with boost, EGT, Trans temp, Smoked Clearance lights, DP to 4 inch pipe with 5 inch mitre stack, 6 Pos chip with TW tunes (love them!).

Could only be gone at that mileage due to god awful air filtration or lack of oil. Ouch...but I suspect mine was rebuilt by the previous owner as well due to lack of correct maintenance. Ya just don't really know what was in a used vehicle's past generally. Good luck with it. I'd just put a stock Garrett back on for now given the $ circumstances. Keep er running and don't look back.

Well the compressor looks like someone stuck a screwdriver or threw sand at it while the truck was on! Too bad I was a nooblet diesel freak that didnt know much when I bought it and didnt think to look. Not to mention the front driver side tire fell off somehow and ground down about an inch and a half of the disk brake! Needless to say to get it safety checked and licensed it was pretty pricey! So I think that if the inside of the turbo resembles anything of what the compressor wheel looks like it needs a new one! I will take some pics of it when I get home in a month lol Also I will show you what happened to the disk brake.

you can buy just a compressor wheel, the real tell tale sign is how much play is in the shaft. that determines how the bearing is
