eBay? The Chinese knock offs are pretty reliable from my experience. You're better off finding a used one with no shaft play on eBay. But since u need a new one, y not upgrade?!

^^This. A VF-series turbo from an STi bolts right up. Just add a DP, tune, and STi intercooler, and you're going a lot faster for not much money.

You know you want to.

You don't even need a tune or a dp if it's an o4xt 5 speed, just get an ecu from an 04 sti along with a vf39 and sti intercooler and you're set.

Well, true, a DP is always optional, but dumb to skimp out on if you have the turbo off and can get a used one for $200. Didn't realize OP had an 04 - Even better!

after you have checked out your engine to make sure that no metal pieces from the turbo have gone into the intake/engine, get a used one on nabisco
