turbo inspection

can someone give me all the tech data or an article on inspecting a stock turbo for an 04 wrx?
I am rebuilding my engine and want to check the turbo as well.
Thanks!

It sounds like maybe he wants some information on what to inspect (visually or otherwise) to make sure his stock turbo is still in good shape so he can reinstall it when he rebuilds his engine. I'm no expert, but I think it would include measuring shaftplay, any cracks, stripped bolts, pressure testing, damaged seals, stuff like that...

Correct?

Man Show, you hit thee nail right on the head! it's exactly as you stated.stock turbo TDo4L,Not looking to upgrade, just want to inspect as everything else I put into this engine has been new or restored to within the subaru specs. I would like to find some tech date on the turbo if avaiable.(side play and thrust distances, bushing diameters) stuff like that. looking for anything from a manual or book.
