Help turbo bad

I am replacing a turbo on a local persons truck. I ordered it Tuesday. But today is Sunday. Turbo is supposed to be here tomorrow. I tried putting there old one back on. I took it apart. It's worn, but to my knowledge the turbine wheel was hot hitting housing and scraping. It is now. They are demanding the truck back today to use it for work tomorrow. Right now this turbo is not usable. I don't know what to do. I just dove it and I hear scraping noise from it under acceleration. Any ideas?

can you get a rebuild kit from a stealership early tomorrow?
doesn't take long to rebuild.

also make sure you didn't tighten the pedestal down too tight!
it will cut of oil flow and do exactly what you described.

i know from experience

i think it only needs 10-15 ft lbs.
