Burning Oil/Blown Turbo...Suggestions or Ideas?

So for a little while I've been getting oil in the intake and intercooler piping but I've never burned oil out of the exhaust until a few days ago. I had a hit and run a couple of months ago so my car sat for a month getting the suspension fixed and then I drove it to another shop to have it sit for another month to get all of the body work done.

I get the car back and it drives perfectly fine but then I notice a whole bunch of white smoke behind me and smell oil. I took it to a shop today and they checked everything and did a compression test and everything internal was fine. So they said the turbo was blown and that they'd replace it for about $500 not including the turbo. I can find a used one for around $300-$400 and have them replace it or just replace it myself which I'm semi comfortable with since I've already had to take off the outlet housing and exhaust manifold to get broken studs out.

I'm just wondering if I should just get a new/bigger turbo or take my turbo and get it rebuilt at SocalPorting for around $300. I'm just conflicted on how to go about this and any input or suggestions would be much appreciated.

I'm also at 106,000 miles.

Thanks!

The turbo comes off the manifold with a simple clamp.

To add what Red means,
there is a v-band holding the "core" of the turbo to the exhausting housing.
Undo the hoses, support bracket, then v-band, snake the turbo out and reverse process with other turbo.

Doing it this way, you don't have to worry about shearing exhaust studs, or if you were lucky to get them off without shearing, the studs possibly loosen later on.

Are you talking about the studs that bolt to the downpipe?

manifold to turbo exhaust housing studs. Mine kept coming loose every week, until I got fed up and just safety wired it.

Oh really ever since I got my manifold ported my studs come loose all the time too. So in my case they're already out right now.

I got the turbo out today. I'm gonna take to SoCal Porting to get it rebuilt and maybe port n polished since it'll already be there.

rebuilding a turbo is easier, just requires a lot of $$$$ for equipment to do it properly.

the equipment to do it properly is a high speed balancer.

I've rebuilt my blouch turbo ( hybrid clipped td04l-19t) once and have almost 60k miles on it, and didn't balance it. So I just got lucky. On the mitsubishi turbos (td0x turbos) the nut is reverse thread (righty loosey, lefty tighty)
Balance points where material is removed to balance are on the turbine nut and the compressor nut. I marked the placement of the compressor nut in relation to the shaft (there's a joke in here somewhere ) before rebuild, and torqued to that location rather than to spec.

Thats if you want to fix it cheap. Worse case, it will start to wear the bears out under a thousand miles in and will have to have it properly rebuilt.

Okay I took the turbo to SoCal Porting and he said my turbo doesn't need to be rebuilt. He showed me the oil seal compared to a new one and they have the same pressure but he went ahead and put the new one on just cause. He also said the bearing inside is spinning directly on the shaft instead of on oil which can cause play in the future.

So, he recommended using 5w-40 oil instead of 5w-30, getting a catch can, and to check my pcv valve.

For any future readers of this thread, I installed the AGP catch can, switched to Motul 5w-40 full synthetic, and did a coolant flush with the prestone green stuff.

Coolant and oil temps have been reading normal and nothing is overheating. Haven't seen any smoke come out of the exhaust either (knock on wood).
