    im afraid thats the going rate for turbo rebuilds mate, i know i can get them done for £250 with 270 bearing or £295 with 360 bearing and as far as im aware thats around the lowest prices.

    Welcome! I think if you want it done properly you'll be looking at them prices I am afraid. Have you tried selling the old engine? May help fund the turbo rebuild.
