[Es2] Rebuilding a K24 turbo

Did you compare it to some others?  I'd expect a little shaft play; no
damage to impellers, and not a ton of oil in the housing.  If so, use it
as is.  It will be mounted with new fasteners; if it isn't working well
or burning a bunch of oil, it probably wouldn't be that hard to pull off
even installed in the car.

$100 for the reseal kit sounds about right.
