You should all know that at some point prior to me purchasing the turbo (never used but bought from private party) there was some damage to the outer casing on the compressor side of the turbo. When I received the turbo everything seemed fine so I didn't worry about it.
I think that statement just above sums up what could have happened to the turbo. If it was dropped by the PO, think about how much force would be required to make an indentation like that. I'm not saying it was dropped, but I can't imagine anyone hitting the housing that hard with a tool.
All speculation, and my $0.02, of course.
