i have a dilema

okay finaly got the chance to get the turbo and everything torn out of my svt focus. we bought it knowing that there was a problem but what kind of problem we didnt know. well i got the xios turbo kit torn out of it and well i found out that the turbo on the compressor side, the seals, are done for so now i have a dilema. should i rebuild the turbo and put it all back in or just put everything back to stock. going to sell the car either way when its running but i just dont see a huge market for turboed foci. if i return it to stock will be selling the kit. um also would be looking for all the stock parts to put back on like header injectors ect. but let me know what you all think the car has 65k on it and 10k on with the kit. or if anyone wants to offer me anything for the xios kit will be having the turbo rebuilt either way.

now if you could follow all that props because i dont know if i could have.

If you are selling the car, return it to stock. You will make waaay more money that way.

You will make more money with the stock car and selling the kit as a whole or even parting it out.

ya thats what i have been thinking we are getting the turbo rebuilt seeing as it is a garret and they are super expensive new. so now where is the easiest place to find stock parts seeing as i cant find many places to find used svt parts.

If it has the Xios, it means it has the gt2860rs. You can't rebuild ball bearing turbos. You have to do a CHRA exchange.

ya good call i'll have to look into that. thanks for the heads up on that. i know that the compressor side is where the oil is coming from which is causing aton of smoke out of the exhaust. so now i need to start searching for the stock parts so i can get the car ready to be sold. thanks for all the support and info.
