mmkay. i still have teh one from the kit but its in pieces (seals bad and took it apart. i ahve all of the parts though. would it be feasable to rebuild it at home and have it balanced? (does it need to be balanced after a rebuild?) ifi can find a model number for it that should tell me which turbo i have (i ahve noticed updated shafts and things like that) also how hard would it be to swap out my turbine housing for a 4 bolt. since i want to re do the downpipe, not really that important. but it has what looks to be an egt bung post turbo, as well as a larger bung (o2 sensor?) so i'd need to do some weld work to it.

would this one do teh trick? or would she be too slow to spool in teh svtf to ahve any sort of fun?
MR. freaking negative
i'm not an enthusiast...... the internets told me.
