Default Here looking for advice

Hi all! Sadly, I am here because my '06 GT needs a new turbo. My wife and I are retired seniors on a limited income and need to decide if we should sell the car - - or fix it. The cost of repairs may be more than our budget allows, and we have another car and don't need two at all. We had considered selling the GT when we retired a few years ago, but decided that the pleasure I get when driving it made it worth keeping.

So now I am wondering if anyone can recommend an aftermarket turbocharger that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. A Subaru OEM turbo is just too expensive. By the way...we live in Canada, in the Vancouver area of British Columbia.

A friend has already directed me to, where I found new turbochargers at much lower prices than OEM. Can anyone here tell me if a turbo from Ultra-Power, Rotomaster, Mahle, Pure Energy or Cardone would be an acceptable replacement? My car is 100% stock, with 163,000 kilometers (100,000 miles) on it and I am not looking to upgrade anything, only to restore the car to its original performance.

Many thanks, in advance, for any advice.
