bad compressor wheel/injectors. upgrade or oem?

I need to preface this by saying I live in CA and have to deal with the smog nazis.

That in mind, I've been having some trouble with my 01 psd excursion and it looks like I have a couple bad injectors plus a big chunk of my compressor wheel is missing on a couple blades.
I've been looking at budget upgrades and am wondering if I should consider going with a used super duty van turbo with a WW2 or just replace my broken wheel with the ww2. Similarly, would it make sense to upgrade the sticks to some stage 1s or just replace the stockers?
I already have a dp tune with 40 and 80 hp modes, no other mods. I don't tow much, bit when I do its a sub 5k load.
Not lookin to make a ton of power, just have a little more fun when mashing the throttle wuile still being able to pass ca smog and not spend a couple grand on parts.

Thanks guys.

where did the chunks on the compressor wheel go? hopefully not down the intake?

if the wheel broke on the old turbo then there is defenitly something wrong with it, and i would tear it apart and look for other damage/ play in the shaft/clearnace before buying just a ww2.

as far as the injectors im not sure, i don't know much about the stage 1's

Not sure where the chunks went, but I believe it was prior to my ownership as ive only had it for 3 months and 2000 miles. I will post a picture once I get in front of the computer, but shaft play was surprisingly minimal.

OUCH!

is that thing burning oil/have blow by after 2k miles?

im betting the housing/wheel is going to need replaced atleast if you plan on keeping it, looks like someone took it apart and didn't check the clearance when they put it back together/sucked something into it....

That wheel ate something... I would pull the turbo and have it reballanced with a new wheel of your choice.

As to the injectors...

Whats making you think you need injectors?

Buzz test revealed bad #4 and #8 injectors. Already replaced UVCH/pigtails this weekend.

No noticeable oil consumption.

Buzz test revealed you have a bad electrical side somewhere on #4 and #8... I would swap those to #6 and #2 and see if the issue follows. If not its not injectors but possible IDM issues.
