Help if you can. It appears the Variable vein Actuator on my turbo has failed. It is typically referred to as the waste gate actuator but mine is controlled electronically not through vacuum pressure. The problem appears to be that I cannot buy the variable vein actuator individually. The dealership will only sell the whole turbo for $1300+. The vehicle is manual 5 speed with 240k miles.

Any help I would appreciate it. I love the car but am not sure if it is worth the $1300+ material and then labor to repair. The A/C compressor recently went out as well.

This is my personal vehicle I use for business as an insurance adjuster.

I am looking for a place to buy a good used turbo or the actuator.

Thank you for any help. I had searched the forum but could not find any reference to this problem.
