okay for one you do realize there is about 400 choices for turbo's...

what makes you think it is messed? not building boost? smoking? surging? you really need to pinpoint you problem before you get a new one, unless you just want to upgrade then just sell it on ebay..

the car is burning oil and also i have oil in my intercooler hoses. I'm guessing its the turbo compressor seal. I dont know much about turbos so can someone point me in the right direction? should I just go for a rebuilt or just upgrade to a new one?

with turbo's thereis an oil sill on each side of the shaft.. when either one goes out it usaly leaks oil out or the compresser/turbine.. so yeah it will need a rebuild, or if you want better than stock just pick up an ssautocrome many for a 100 bucks, and run a t04e/60-1.. verry comen turbo, make lots of power and still spool around 4k.. to rebuild is going to cost you around 500..
