    Hello,

    I have a Cummins N14 Red Top Celect Plus 525HP. I just took off the intake hose to do a boost leak test and found that my turbo has inhaled something at some point. I'm pretty sure I've been running like this for a while. Turbo has no shaft play side to side or in and out. The blade is just chewed up (Picture below).

    I assume its a good idea to get this fixed ASAP.

    Does anyone have a Turbo replacement recommendation? Would you just go stock or this there a slight upgrade you recommend?

    When the turbo went out on my N14, I replaced it with an $800 Chinese turbo-no core charge. That was 600K miles ago!
