87 K and Turbo went out

I have 87k and change on my 01 and the turbo went south while I was pulling a load yesterday. I am a rookie at turbos so I am open to suggestions. I don't have a lot to spend so which is my best bet to get running again? I have read and I am interested in the Van turbo but I am not forsure. Also should I consider rebuilding mine or just looking for a new one. I would like to stay under $800. I plan to do the work my self so labor cost doesn't go into the equation. I have a dp tuner, upgraded air intake, and 4" exhaust. Thanks for the help

re-build it.....nope I wouldn't just get a new one, a van turbo is good....if you can find one. unless you plan on more hp upgrades I would stay with the stock size, if you want more hp then a G38r BB is the way to go, (at least thats what most people do. I am an E99 so if/when I need to do mine a D66 will be going in.

I picked on up a a junkyard for 100 bucks last weekend, thing its in really good shape, call around and see what people got, how bad did it go out? a rebuild kit is under 100 bucks and extremely easy, there are plenty of videos on youtubes and guides on this website to help you

If you go the rebuild route be sure and get the shaft balanced afterwards.

I have no idea how bad the internals of the turbo are. I just know oil is coming out the exhaust and it is smoking like a freight train.

For under $800 I would just get a stock used one. The best option is a Garrett BB unit, but they are quite a bit more, unfortunately.
