Recommend a turbo rebuild kit or service

VWVortex.com - 2.0T FSI Engine Forum - forums.vwvortex.com
2008 BPY engine, just shy of 140K miles. Wife said it has started making a high pitch whistling sound when accelerating. Started it and intermittently at idle I can hear a loud "horn" sound. Horn as in the musical instrument, not a car horn. Anyway, I can feel vibration exactly associated with this sound at the turbo compressor inlet on the top passenger side of the engine. We took the car to the dealer and were informed that the turbo is shot. I haven't spoken directly to the mechanic yet, so I don't know if it's a candidate for a rebuild or not. We are buying a new 2018 Passat, as the dealer cost to repair our 2008 exceeds the value of the car. I plan to rebuild or replace the turbo and give this car to my 16 year old son. I'm looking for a high quality rebuild kit or rebuild service. Thanks.
