if only it was that simple
Most shops want around $900 to $1000 for the rebuild, not a huge difference from a completly new replacement. The two shops that looked at my old turbo said it was too corroded and therfore it wasn't rebuildable. If it was just a matter of replacing the turbo section, (the whizzer thingy) I'd attempt to bolt an old car's turbo on the wastegate but the wastegate is in lousy shape and it's quite specific to Yanmar. I think I'm about to spend $1400 on a turbo...
