Turbo rebuild

So I'm new to all of this, I have a 2000 f-450 tow truck 7.3 motor. Had a serious oil leak from my turbo. Took it to my mechanic they took the turbo out and found that it was leaking from this shaft the seal was gone. So now it's time to put the turbo back. And his saying if I can get the parts I have no idea what I'm buying and it would actually save me if I brought it he said. His saying my way of learning about what I have. Okay my problem is this who sells the gaskets kit or what I need to rebuild and put everything back. I have no idea what I'm looking for. Being from Hawaii (Oahu) it makes it hard to get the right parts. I could go to my local ford dealer but I'm sure they would rape me like they do with everything else I brought. Also upgrades while the turbo is out any suggestions as to what I should get and who from. Better if your a dealer I need someone I can work with. Mahalo RnC Towing

Pictures is the turbo out second picture is where the oil was leaking from the port his saying I need a gasket and o-ring.

Billet her up for sure, you'll be happy. Dieselsite ww2 was 229 if I remember correctly. Riffraff is great also

I just rebuilt my turbo using a billet wheel and bushing kit from Riff Raff. Fairly easy to do, Riff Raff has a great web page that allows you to see step by step instructions. I also replaced my stock up pipes with Dorman, as they were also leaking ( truck has 250K miles on it). Runs great, no problems with oil leaks now.

Go ahead and delete the ebpv since it's never cold there, and get a deleted pedistal (more of an oil leak prevention)

How was doing the up pipes? I finally have a day coming up that I can do mine and was just looking for any advice on it.

Just did mine not long ago,WOW what a pita that can be,but makes a huge difference,before WOT I would see 10psi max,now I can see 20-22psi on 100hp tune nothing crazy! It takes some patience and a TON of PB bolt breaker,start spraying it a few days earlier so it can soak in,just getting at everything is a big task so take your time and follow the write ups on here to do it made it fairly simple once knowing what I was getting at!
