Default Turbo won't boost...

So im new here...
Anyway I have a 1990 Mazda Miata with a TD04H turbo. The turbo stopped producing boost last night and I'm not sure why. The compressor spins but it looks pretty beaten up. Can I rebuild it myself? Should I just buy a new turbo? I just need some help going on the right direction thanks

This guy has posted in like 6 different places now. I already answered his question for him somewhere else but he's clearly retarded and has no plans of changing that. Nah, just post more.

turbo help? : Miata

You can not rebuild a compressor wheel that is 2/3rds missing, you need a new turbo. The rest of your miata is total ****, going off photos alone.

Hate to say it like it is, but as fucked as that car is you ain't fixing it.

Why do stupid people always buy shitty cars and expect them to just work.

The kicker is that for many of them, it actually happens. It's like the car knows that it will never be fixed, and just refuses to break.
