hey Johnny. You'll proably need to get a rebuild kit, or something to that exent. Chris at Apex should be able to do it for you. You should also have him look at it and see why they blew. Something like that shouldn't be happening.

haha, it all comes down to the $$$. I'd take it to him. Who knows, maybe you just have a defective turbo. blowing the seals definately shouldn't be happening with the like 100miles you have on the turbo.

You may have too much oil pressure going to the turbo.
I thought I blew my seals, restricted the oil flow and have had no more problems with the seals leaking.
Good luck.
