Is this turbo FUBAR????

I just picked this up for $100. I Just spent some time cleaning it up.(pics taken before cleaning) It has very little shaft play, but a couple of the compressor wheel blades have tiny little chips at the corners, and the turbine housing was very oily. I know the rebuild kit is cheap, but I don't think I can wait. Is it safe to run?

If the fins are like that, I wonder if the guy was overheating the motor.
I'd probably get it balanced out, just in case.
I'd DEF rebuild it for sure.

I wouldn't run that, looks like oil is leaking out of the turbine seal. The blade is dinged up too which is pretty unusual for the exhaust side

The turbine (exhaust side) is in really bad shape. I wouldn't run it based on that. Coach.

Those aren't bends you see on the turbine wheel. Its grime from my fingers from when I spun it. I'll get another pic up soon.

It almost looks like the VGT actuator over extended the vanes and they hit the wheel.

The turbine wheel is in perfect condition as far as I can tell. Like I said before it was just grime on the edges that made it look bent.
