Need a new backing plate for Compressor Housing

Last aug I bought a rebuilt turbo on fleabay. It didn't turn out very well. The backing plate on the compressor housing is shot. The lip seal has been ground down to nothing. I am looking to find a new backing plate as that is really all that I need in order to get this one working. Anyone have an old turbo housing lying around? or know where to find one? I am looking for a good backing plate or even entire turbo housing. The exhaust turbine are the same between pre99 and the rest. So that I don't really need the entire unit. But what ever it takes.

I got a new backing plate from Beans when I was rebuilding my van turbo. IIRC it was about $25.

I have an old compressor housing, that I replaced when I did the ats, but not the other side, sorry I couldnt be of more help, but $25 for a new one from beans sounds like a pretty good deal.

Call Bean on Monday, and he can get you one ont he way. since hes in Tenn, and I am in AL, I had mine the next day. You being in UT it might take till friday for you to get it. Might also want to call Dennis at ITP, hes a little closer to ya.
after looking back in my emails from last feb.(when I bought the backplate) it was $50 shipped.

Thanks guys, I actually called and talked to Ryan today at beans, have a new one on the way now. It was closer to 70 with shipping, but really figured the odds of finding one were very slim. Hopefully it is here by Friday, that'd be awesome. Right now I am trying to keep it below 5lbs boost as I have two 3 to 2.5 couplers that don't fit well with the original turbo and horn on. Don't really want to blow them off. Keeping it down that low is not fun driving at all.
