Worth Cleaning Turbo at Home or Bringing it in?

My turbo has been acting up and it needs to be taken apart and cleaned. I called my local dealer who i like and do good work and they said its about 4hrs and around $340 to do a turbo cleaning. Is it worth it for me to just take it in or should i do it myself? Im decent with a wrench and do a lot of work on my own but i know that cleaning this thing can be a job and i dont wanna screw anything up. Anyone done their own 6.0 turbo cleaning? was it a *****? thanks

I had mine out 2 weeks ago. Changed out the oil cooler. I wanted to clean the turbo. Well lets just say after an hour of beating the turbo with at Dead Blow hammer I could not split it. I am looking for info on how to split it when it is seized together.
