turbo problem...

So, i finally got around to installing my wicked wheel today and i'm pretty sure i f'd something up. when i took the old wheel off there was a very small amount of play, nothing major, but when i went to put the new one on it only spins about half way up the shaft. i tried spinning the shaft w/out the compressor wheel on and i can hear rubbing. sounds like the turbine side is rubbing. it spun freely before i removed the old one. is it possible i tightened the other side or loosened it? i only took the compressor side off and used an air impact gun on it. now, i'm an idiot and accidentally hit it a few times in the forward direction (to get the stock wheel off) before i realized how dumb i am... this ain't normal is it? should i take the downpipe/turbine side off and see what that side looks like as well? seemed sooo much easier before i tore it apart haha...

I would take the turbo out and go through it. Sounds like that accident of overtightening messed up the shaft, If it were me I wouldn't drive it till the turbo is fixed.

ok, i ended up trying to put the stock one back on and it spins freely now? no rubbing or anything. why would the new wheel cause it to grind/not go on all the way? i got mine from xdp... so i took the stock one off again and tried the new wheel. still rubs. but i looked at the wheel and theres no scratches or anything?
