What about it makes it need to be replaced, vs rebuilt?
I've rebuilt a lot of turbochargers and it's unusual for one to be so far gone it can't be rebuilt.
If you can get it rebuilt, ask the shop if they balance the compressor and turbine wheels. If they say no, find a shop that does. Not all of them do, but it's done on a proper rebuild.
