Turbo overhaul???

So I have an 05 wagon with 90k, XPT stage 2, TBE. couple weeks ago exhaust started smoking right about the time it heats up and only when idling. I figured it was the turbo so I picked one up (td04) from the salvage today and it has 0.2 inch shaft play on both sides and oil all over the turbine.....****crap**** my question is, should I attempt to rebuild it myself or have someone do it? I can't get an estimate, everyone says they would have to see inside it first. If anyone has rebuilt one before let me know what I'm getting into.

Yeah, I've done my fair share of researching the overhaul process and going to do it myself in a month or so and have a professional balance it. I'll let you all how it goes.
