Holy crap, it's that loose after 1k miles? I'm betting it was never right at all.

Contact ebay and set up a claim for defective merchandise. No way that thing was usable if it has that much wobble.

That is not an ebay turbo. That is the high quality china turbo that Begi is selling.

Time to move on to bigger and better turbos.
