I may be replacing the 13g from my 850 - depends if it's toast or not. Wondering if anyone can suggest a good place to get (or a bad place to stay away from!) a 16g replacement - might as well get a bigger one, you know? :)

I'm thinking a rebuilt should be good enough as a brand new one, without the serious wallet ding, especially for a car with a quarter million on the odo...

lol, the one person who responds is the one person that I asked the same question in person! Everything is ordered except for the turbo and the turbo/downpipe gasket - and those are next! Just can't seem to remember my eBay password at the moment . . .

Yup, got it. Install was a breeze compared to the other bazillion tasks I had for the car. Because the turbo is bigger than the LPT I replaced, I noticed a "spool lag" but that was expected. Funny enough; with the new turbo I was able to squeal the tires in a straight pull for the first time ever. Not bad for so many years/miles!
