Thanks Gene - I did that, same thing, but I couldn't get that little collar thing on the shaft in, and couldn't get the shaft back in the housing - finally I got it in, but I just don't feel very comfortable that i did it 100% knowing that a small kink or scratch or damage could screw it all up. So I am looking at the cartridge as the next best (inexpensive) route...then of course it is all out new turbo. I have another turbo housing so I figure that a cartridge in that will get me a "rebuilt" unit.

I just installed one yesterday. I too, lost one bolt on the turbine housing and had to drill it out. Other than that, dealing with the big circlip was the biggest hassle. Good sized needlenose pliers seemed to end up being the best way.

Anywho, it is back together and running as normal.
