Turn your flash off and do another pic. Too hard to tell anything in that pic.

The picture is clearer now but I wouldn't call it "better." The damage to that vane won't get better and could cause a cascade of problems if not addressed. The turbo spins faster than engine RPM by a factor of 10 or more. That is VERY fast. The thought of the damage caused by fracturing metal flying through the intake into a combustion chamber would lead me to a replacement purchase and a NO operation mode until replaced. Good catch! I'd say you are one lucky guy to identify a potential fault of this magnitude BEFORE it caused damage.

So I should be replacing the compressor wheel at least right? Any upgraded parts to rebuild with? Where would be a good place to find the parts besides the dealership?

Thanks

If you don't want to go to the dealer (with reliable parts of known quality and manufacture) you could try a "Pull-a-Part" site where you at least have a good idea that the part was at least in use for some time. A trusted vendor from an online parts store maybe? I don't have a source unfortunately but I'm sure there is someone here who can provide a good vendor recommendation.

P.S. I agree that a look at the intake is a prudent move.

I have an Airaid intake on it and I have inspected it closely, dont know how anyting could possibly get in there. It is all very clean other than the residue from the CCV. I have heard of upgraded compressor wheels and now would be the time.
