Turbo Question...

i was thinking about putting this turbo on my Civic...

notice the broken turbine blade... the guy that i got it from says that it wont hurt the turbo at all. but ive heard from other people that it will give me no power with the broken blade and could possibly cause engine damage. can anyone tell me if i got screwed over on the turbo?

I can not see any detail

in your picture.

But at the speed turbos run, over 26k the missing part will soon have lots of other small pieces being pushed into the engine.

A definite failure looking for a time to happen.

Do not installed a failed turbo on your car.

It would be like keeping your pocket change in the intake.
