Lost my turbos

Had a bad popping on high boost. I thought it was ignition related and started diagnosing. Found both E Core coils were way out of spec and replaced them with new MSD TFI units. Plenty of spark but still popping. I started thinking possibly a boost leak and started to test. I pulled off the intake boot off the drivers side turbo and low and behold the shaft play is way too much!! Looks like the impeller has dug into the compressor housing as well. So one turbo for sure is done. I still need to pull the passenger turbo and check itís end play. The big question is since these are older technology turbos, I would have to upgrade both. So do I stay twin turbo or reconfigure to a big single? Chris any input?
