It was bad..... oil in the compressor side..... should just be a seal.

New turbo went in pretty easily, just required some persuasion to get the downpipe hooked up. Have a leak at the downpipe to turbo mating surface, probably just need a new gasket....

Looks great in the engine bay, and it should spool much faster with the new 48 ar turbine as opposed to the old 63 ar. !

If I do fedex, it looks like between 10 and 15 bucks shipping for regular ground

Maybe consider a GT3271?

Sounds about right to me. The 3271 is about as expensive as a standard T3/T04E @ 650.00 but has GT technology. It should spoolup anywhere from 3500-4200rpm depending on the boost pressure you are running.
