Thoughts on this re-manned turbo?

As most of you know, I am desperately searching for parts for my engine replacement. $1,300 for a new turbo from Subaru is absolutely out of the question.

I found a website that sells subaru re-manned turbos. The going prices is around $530. Do you guys think this is fair, or would I be better off still searching for a used one to rebuild. THOUGHTS???

Here is a link to it....

Or you can send yours off to be rebuilt for a few hundred less.

I have a guy on NASIOC that wants to sell me one off of a '07 wrx with 40k on it. Im trying to get him to $180, which is the top of my price range for a used one.

Even $180 is too high IMO.

I went ahead and bought it. He says it only has right at 40k on it and it is off of a 2007 WRX, just like mine. I figured $180 was a good deal since it included shipping.

Hey OP, did/do you know this guy? Have you known him for a few years? Sounds like you may have.

No, do not know him any better than I know you guys. He has a very high trader/selling rate on both nasioc and paypal though.
