while kits are available, rebuilding a turbo without rebalancing it *may* cause a catastrophic failure (engine-killing) or short life. Even the little end nut is critical to balance @100-150k rpm.

But if you mark the relative position of the intake and exhaust wheels, and carefully rebuild to those marks, you might get lucky. I have been in the past, but be warned...

how do you mean rebalancing? who can do this? isnt there somewhere where you can send your conked turbo and they can fix it and send it back? surely that would be cheaper than buying a new one...

You need to investigate why you are killing your turbo so fast. Is your DPF causing back pressure and contaminating the oil? Is your vvt actuator sticking, damaging the compressor wheel and breaking up?

Investigation first, replacement second.

And yes, oil filter, oil change, sump pickup clean, oil feed pipe are I would say mandatory if your turbo has failed, period. Basically anything you can do to make sure the oil getting to the turbo is clean and free flowing, needs to be done.

Peugeot / Citroen / Ford have a specific flow check you can do, it's in Service Box as an info flash, read it.
