New turbo?

Does anybody have any input on a new turbo? Was thinking about just a new stock turbo, or maybe a step up. Don't know a lot about turbos, want something reasonably priced, and that can just bolt in place of the stock one. Thanks.

Why do you want a new turbo? Is something wrong with your stock one? What mods have you done?

Guy before me built up the turbo and put the one off of his other truck on mine, stock turbo, but the turbo has around 60,000 more miles on it than the motor in my truck. That kind of makes me nervous, but it might just be me. Has a TS 6-position.

It's not hard to remove the downpipe from the EBPV. Get a 8mm 12-point wrench and remove the EBPV from the turbine housing by holding the wrench on one of the three bolts holding it on and tap the open end of the wrench with a small hammer or large rubber mallet till it breaks free. Remove EBPV from the system and pull the rubber inner boot off before the turbo on the other side. Reach in and spin the wheel, does it spin freely? Push in/pull out on the center of the shaft/wheel and try to rock the wheels (intake and exhaust wheels) to check for play. No play is great, very little play is ok, if you have play in any direction apply force in that direction and rotate the wheel to see if the play in the wheel is allowing the wheel to scrape on the housing that the wheel is in. Look at the wheels for chipping, pitting, bending, missing parts/fins.

Thanks! No play in the wheel, so I guess I can spend my money on other parts.
