Maybe you should look at a twin scroll turbo?
And 1/2cm is bad... I'm surprised that it hadn't died yet.
Im pretty new to turbos, whats a twin scroll? And yes I am very glad I didnt blow the turbo not knowing it was bad. I was lucky to find it now. Does anyone know anyone that buy core's to rebuild them? Because I dont think I'll be rebuilding mine. Just replacing.
And yes I am VERY surprised its still holding on for dear life...

When I'm able to push it in then move it side to side yep definitely feels like it...
