It led me to believe that the turbo bearing was shot and the chamber divider (seal) was broken. In the past few days, the weather here was perfect, about 75 degrees during the day, so I decided to tack it.

The first photo shows the prior.
The 2nd shows the new and the old side by side.
The last is after the replacement.

Took it out for a spin, I could tell the power was like day and night, easy peasy on a hill. Phew!
Mind if I ask where you sourced the new turbo?
