best bet would be on ebay or the DSM forums.

I have a spare, but it certainly isn't new or freshly rebuilt

I went the ebay route, didn't work out very well.

What condition is your turbo in, any cracks in the housing, any damage to either of the turbines?

If it needs a rebuild as in new gasket, journal bearings etc, I would be interested but I'm not looking for something that needs a bunch of new major parts. There is a guy locally that can balance it for me if I rebuild it myself.

Well, I have a 16g that had the turbine blades burn down, and bought a 14b to salvage the turbine. I was going to put the two together and rebuild it into a nice 16g, but a decent used 16g came up for cheap, so the parts pile has been sitting since. All the parts to make a nice turbo are there (the turbine housing might be cracked...not sure...there are two to choose from), but it would take some time to get it all together. There is no good place to balance it after rebuilding around here, so that has stopped me from doing it myself.

If you want to sell the parts PM me with a price. This would involve shipping to Canada, just so you know.

How does the 16g spool, I would start of running 6 psi and work my way up to 9 or 10.

It'd take a decent offer to make me go through the hassle of sipping to Canada, sorry.

On the other hand, the 16g spools much better than expected on the little 1.6. I'm running ~8psi right now, and it's a scream. I hit full boost well before 4k rpm.
