Turbo Questions w/ PICS

I am replacing my up pipes with IH bellowed pipes and deleting my EBPV and sensor with a new turbo pedestal and outlet, and I am also installing a new Wicked Wheel 2 (WHICH LOOKS AWESOME btw)...

but... I am tearing my turbo apart to install the WW and the surfaces on the compressor side dont look good, there is also some play when I wiggle the compressor side to side (more than I would have expected)....see pictures below.


This scratch pattern is not consistent along the edge.



What do you guys think?

The compressor back plate looks fairly normal from what I've seen (I have seen 4 of them now taken apart) and all of them have some sort of molding marks and excess metal from casting that can even look like the metal ran down like too much paint when applied to a vertical surface. On the 4 I have played with I just took a sanding disc and cleaned it up until smooth and then polished it out.
With that being said I haven't seen cracks like you have pictured and if they seem to be deep (into the metal itself and not just surface stuff) I would personally consider replacing the backing plate, I DO NOT know if will effect anything but for the cheap cost you can get someone's old turbo why not?

thanks for the response. Anyone else? I need to decide if I should put my truck back together or hold off and get a new turbo tomorrow.

I don't see any reason to panic, I'd go ahead and put it back together with the new wheel. Movement is Not an issue unless you see evidence of contact with the housing (it's just a bushing in there and needs clearance for the, supporting, oil).

It's hard to tell what those "lines" are. Some are casting anomalies maybe, might have a tiny crack or two but, who knows what All our turbos look like right now (plus, I don't think it's failure point that anyone's having trouble with...)
