Basic rebuild is $400 (which covers seals, bearings, balance etc) at most shops if you need a new wheel or shaft the price will go up from there.

You forgot one very important thing the turbo will need to be balanced after you pull it apart.

I got quoted 400 for a standard T3 rebuild from a VL but they had second thoughts when I brought it to them in a bag full of bits of metal and what was left of the comp cover. lol
