My turbo went bad! Where to get new one!

My turbo has finally bit the dust and the compressor wheel has a big nick in it. So I just want to get a new turbo. Where can I get a new turbo or a good used one. I don't have much money to spend on one.

What is my best option here? My truck is just tymar intake, stacks, 3" downpipe, and chip.

There is a brand new one for sale in the Performance and drivetrain forum.

I had Ron's rebuild and balance my stock turbo. I got expert advice and super fast service. The work is super high quality and I am super happy. I would give them a call before I bought or swapped my turbo. It will likely save you some money and you will get a better then new turbo.

i bought one from ron's turbo off ebay probably close to 2 years ago - if i remember correctly, it came with an unlimited mileage 2 year warranty, and an upgraded high rpm bearing. what is good with his turbo's is that he does not hone out or sand out scratches in the housing, because that changes factory clearances. he only uses factory housings in pristine condition. just know ahead of time, if your turbo suffered a bearing failure he probably wont be interested in that as a core. many many members have gotten their turbos through him. i would seriously suggest spending a few extra bucks and staying away from the cheap turbos on ebay...
