td04 turbo broken, options

So I had some lateral play in a TD04 turbo that I got and decided to rebuild it. I ordered the kit and it got here today so I take off the exhaust side of the turbo and see that although the turbine looked find from the outside, the lower portion hidden in the cover was all chewed up. picture. It's strange because it definitely did not come in contact with the exhaust housing, there must have been things getting blown through the exhaust that destroyed it. I haven't checked on the intake turbine yet, looks fine from the outside but obviously this is not a good judgment. So I am looking for options. I am going to need at lest a new exhaust turbine, and have the assembly balanced, correct? Are there any other turbos that this exhaust turbine can come off of because the superback td04-15t is pretty rare. Are there any other makes of turbos that will work comparatively? Basically I just want to get a turbo on my car so that I can enjoy the newly rebuilt engine. If anybody has any contacts or parts that may help me they will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

All you need is an HL turbine shaft, but you cacn't restore the balance.

Also, was there a lot of play in the shaft to where the turbine shaft could have bounced around inside the turbine housing? This is common.

Looks like I am going with a known good used unit. Anybody interested in this unit. The inside of the exhaust housing is no affected, just the exhaust turbine, let me know if you want this one.

I bought a Viggen TD-04 off of eBay that had the piston ring groove on the other side of the turbine shaft so worn down that I had to replace the turbine shaft. Gpop Shop had the superback shaft in stock for a decent price. Even after buying that, a rebuild kit, and the original turbo price, I still think I got a good deal. A local marine shop has a guy who does nothing but turbos who reassembled and balanced it for me. It's amazing how little time that actually takes.
