Turbocharger balance is a must
Is your concern that the turbo shows low or no boost? If so, your next mission is to find out the cause. The number one issue found is bad shaft bearings resulting in rubbing or binding between the compressor and turbine wheels and the units housings. Excessive play in the shaft bearings will result in a wobble allowing the wheels to scratch against their housing. This additional friction prevents the turbo from spooling as it needs to, reducing the turbo speed and operative boost performance. To check if this is indeed the problem, remove the intake or exhaust from the turbo. This will allow you a view of the turbo internal moving components. Any scraping on either the turbo blades or the housing means the bearings are shot and the turbo needs to be replaced or rebuilt. You also spin the turbo with your fingers to feel for any unevenness or binding. This is the easiest and fastest way to determine if the shaft doesn't turn freely and if not repairs are needed.
Problems that also indicate repairs are needed are cracks and or nicks in the turbo wheel blades. A turbocharger is electronically balanced to very high specs and any damage to the blade will knock the assembly out of balance. Even a slight change in the turbo balance, even if the blade moves freely, will prevent maximum rpm and over time will cause damage to the shaft bearing. If this is left uncorrected rebalancing will be impossible and the damaged parts will need to be replaced.
