Default Greddy turbo replacment question

Turbo took a dump. will this cartridge replace the center section on the greddy? not buying this particular one, but i can find one out of a 9x' volvo. yes ive searched and this is the conclusion i came up with.

I think the greddy is a tdo4h which has a slightly smaller wheel than the tdo4hl from that volvo. So I doubt it would work. Why not just rebuild the one you have? Its pretty easy to do.

turbine broke off the shaft on the exhaust side. bent blades. the turbo has bit it. i dropped it of at a miata shop here in town to get an official decision if it can be rebuilt. they said the housong didnt look damaged but the chra looks to be dead.

i cant find a straiht answer to a turbo that will bolt up then. someone mentioned a wrx turbo swap with the greddy compressor or something to that extent. im new to the turbo stuff if you cant tell.

thanks

Chuck?

It sucks to hear that! I hope you find a good replacement.

Edit: Wait, not chuck. Small world though.
