i posted this on another site but wanted some more opinions

i took off my intake tube the other day to look at my turbo and this is what i found....


i havent heard anything sounding like its hitting the housing but it did have some shaft play but not too much IMO

how bad is this?

Looks like its time to pull it off. That is pretty ugly. It's not hard or expensive to rebuild the turbo. If you have fuel leaks it's the perfect opportunity to fix that also. Check for up pipe leaks too. If a little bit of metal did some real damage you would know it by now.

Good deal. Take care of that turbo though. That wheel could come apart. That would be real bad.
