Unhappy new to Forum, HELP, dealer wants $2400 to replace turbo, video att.

Hi all, I'm new to the forum. I lurk a little but have never posted.

I have a 2011 Buick Regal Turbo, 80k. I took the car to the dealer last week because I was getting an error for "Service Stabilitral" they ended up changing the Throttle Body for free. However, lately I get a loud howling noise that lasts 2 to 20 seconds upon starting up from cold. I took it back and they told me the Turbo needs to be replaced for $2400. Anyone have any idea what could be? I have a video but I have a low post count so it won't let me post it. I added a line break as a work around.

thanks for nothing guys,

but if anyone else has this problem, it did end up being a turbo failure. I found a local speed shop that did the replacement for $1,700. On the way there the turbo actually gave out completely, shaft broke right in half.

For future reference , ZZP has cheap OEM K04's available.

I'd post a link but the forum rules dont allow me to.
