Damn @TooGqForYou the VT been giving you problems lately. Hope you get everything sorted out man.

Get arp studs for the head and the turbo. I plan on that being my first mods with the newer VT in the future. Might do my head now just to have experience for the next one.

Turbo is installed and she runs like a champ again. . I spent $602 delivered to my door a new Borg Warner turbocharger and $750 in labor to install it and do an synthetic oil change. Power delivery seems much more linear now than before the turbo actually decided to shed some hot side fins lol. Overall very pleased with the turbocharger I purchased through partsgeek.

$1352 installed for a brand new turbo doesn't sound too bad. Glad you got it work!
You just replaced it with an oem/stock unit right? As in, not upgraded.

I forgot to mention the install portion also included the replacement of a faulty waste gate actuator module. I think that’s what it was that was replaced.
