Learn me on turbo rebuilding/replacement

I had a post on a turbo whine. Now I am sure it needs to be at least rebuilt. While I have it out and apart I might as well replace the wheels. It has the original parts and 280K mies. Iíll also install a set of bellowed up pipes. So my question is what are the best options. It is mostly a daily driver though I do tow equipment with it and want to keep my EGT low. It has more than enough power as it is with a stock turbo. I want to rebuild it to be strong as possible. I have read that with billet wheels there is an increase in the EGT but will spool faster.

What about a full turbo cartridge already rebuilt with new wheels?

Are ther any links on this topic I can read up on turbos. I have searched up old posts.

What else do I need to know? Special tools? Common mistakes?

Thanks in advance.
