Default Need new turbo unit

Hi, I was wondering what the best/cheapest way to go is when replacing a turbo unit. Almost $2000 for a new one. Does anyone have any experience with the refurbished ones on Ebay? Also what about a dealer that sells used or aftermarket turbos. I need to fix asap, but cannot afford a new factory unit. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Chris

you can get rebuilt units with a bigger wheel for under $800. Used ones go for under $200. They can be swapped out in 2 or 3 hours.

Agreed. They are on ebay and you can check here - Dodge SRT Forums - SRT4, SRT6, SRT8, SRT10 and Dodge Forum
