rebuilding fuel system and turbo

here i am rippin some stuff off the bus and i run into a few issues i could use some guidance on.

short video below
cool bus fuel system, turbo overhaul - YouTube

the whole valley area was filled with rats nest ****, bones, debris, etc from sittin wherever it sat before i picked it up. and it was all soaked in diesel so i decide to pull all this stuff off and rebuild it.

the fuel line goin off to regulator broke a peice of the regulator off, you can see it in the vid.

and the turbo seals, bearings, copper bushings etc are done. that compressor wheel is chewed up.

what can i do about the regulator? i cant seem to find one unless its the whole bowl assembly-$350-dieselorings.com
plus a new pump, hoses, clamps, etc im lookin 5-600 for the fuel system. do you think thats worth it or should i just do electric?

turbo rebuild from dieselorings would run me around 250 with the 99up upgraded wheel. is that the route i should go?

Do e-fuel.. As for the wheel upgrade, just do a stock wheel or a whicked wheel 2. Don't bother with the 99-03 wheels and the upgraded wheel for those years is the stock 94-97 wheel also know as a whicked wheel 1

i have already oredered the fuel system. just went with stock replacement stuff. decided it will be a faster reinstall than setin up electric. plus it was pretty inexpensive in comparison.

i will look for the wicked wheel 2. i have only found the first one i guess.

and i took all the bolts off compressor side of turbo, and im pretty sure it was rtv sealed to the plate... it wont come off even with some hammer influence.

dare i try pryin between the two pieces?

Is the turbo still mounted? On my obs there is an inaccessible bolt holding the housing just under the valve cover/behind it, but I just started taking the wheel out and the housing came off with it
