I know because I bought one that was "checked out" and it was working great when removed.. the shaft play is way out of spec and I could see that myself (and I know nothing!)..

Does the wastegate have all the studs intact and in good shape? I may be interested as it will save me rebuilding mine and replacing all the studs..
The Turbo was working great when removed I bought K27HFs And some other bolt on stuff then GHL exhaust and air box.
The wastgate has all studs. New SS ones. I bought the rebuild kit with gaskets for $120 and at the same time ordered a Tiel wastgate and it came faster then the parts.
So I installed the Tiel and rebuilt the stock one to save.
But I have no use for it now.
