Jay, $20 to balance four injectors? How'd you score a deal like that?

Check your yellow pages for a Parker fitting store. Take the turbo there. They can make you an SS line for your oil fittings or at least get you the right ends.

And occasionally you can hear a tiny bit of a grinding sound when you spin the shaft. Maybe I'm just paranoid. I'm trying to decide if I should rebuild it or not.

But huh?

Total spent so far: $634, including shipping, for turbo, manifold, downpipe, injectors, fuel pump, AFPR.

I'm sure somebody has already said it, but if your paranoid, rebuild it

theres a couple of threads about how to do it, and apparently its not that hard:
T25 rebuild

pics are great
