My turbo is screwed

well another night cruising around in my truck with the gang. we all were having fun and then as soon as i drop my budy reiley off at his house, everything went down hill. all the bolts that hold my exhaust housing on my turbo fell out or brook off. so the wheel is now rubbing against the housing. so i decided to head home and i had to drive like 8 minutes with the turbo messed up. the max psi i could get was 6 pounds *normally runing at 17* and my pyrometer got up to 800 when it should be at 500. so now i have to get a new turbo
