You discovered that it was bad before it blew up - that's good. The bad thing is the money you need to get a new turbo. On the other hand you will have a good core for rebuild so the old turbo isn't completely worthless.
Maybe you should look at a twin scroll turbo?
And 1/2cm is bad... I'm surprised that it hadn't died yet.
