There is 1 bent fin at the tip and some pitting on all of the fins. Some shaftplay, about 1-2mm. Fins have a slight edge to the shiny ones, telling me there's been a little contact with the housing.
I bought the turbo knowing about the little bit of shaftplay, but not about the bent fin which has me worried.
Story is, I made 300hp/265tq last Monday. 2 days later my turbo locked up, compressor nut came off and bent the shaft. Bought the exact same turbo used online. Arrived today, and while inspecting I found this. Do I have a $200 paperweight, or is the bent fin nothing to worry about?
