to make it short and sweet I had a garret G25 or t25 , not sure on what letter, would have to check papers.
Anyways, was gonna pay 700-800 for rebuild, week later they told me the casing is flaking away and needs a new housing unit to stop the leak.
at that point im just guessing itll hit 1k+ maybe even $1400.
If i were to be a degenerate since, pipes are all there, oil lines are already to go, fuel injectors already in, the full TSI kit is on the car.
Can i simply find another turbo unit thats compatible with the car. Online head units can be $200-1000 bucks, not a G25 which is about 2k but at this point ill throw a rinky dinky part in it if it last 50,000 miles and is cheap just will re-tune it.
