Default need to replace turbo

I have a 2005 GT convertable turbo. The turbo went out. Took it to mechanic and gave me a price of $2,200 for just the part. The car has 98,000 miles on it, and runs perfectly otherwise. But DAMN $2,200 for just the part?! Any advice on someplace to find/buy/get a turbo for the car?

I live in Florida.

Thanks

Also, since I am new to this, is there a part number to look up? I have tried doing searches for turbo, but get a bunch of non-applicable stuff. Thanks again

$2200 is pretty inflated for just the turbo. I'd steer clear of that shop in the future..

thats actually book price for a "new" setup + mopar only sells them as kits, not just the turbo... i got a buddy selling a new one for $500 (high in my opinion) but you can come to jax and i'll slap it on for you for $100
