Used turbo...

So I was going to throw away the old 240k mile turbo I took off the  
200, as to me it has no value short of an oversized paper weight.

Before I did that though, thought I'd put an offer out to to a new home.  I pulled this turbo and replaced with  
a lower mileage (+80k) version in the hopes of lowering oil  
consumption on my now sold car.  As I didn't do much driving of that  
car after the transplant I don't know if it cured the problem or say not sure if this was a key contributing factor in the  
consumption, or the turbo may still be just fine.

So if anybody is interested let me now.  You cover shipping and the  
turbo is yours.  I just figure maybe somebody is curious on having  
one for the sake of science (i.e. taking apart and reassembling,  
treating like a lego set, wants this paperweight...etc).  Thought it  
was a worthy last ditch effort before sending it to the scrap bin in  
the sky.

Feel free to contact me off list if you have interest.
