Rebuild it your self. It is very easy. The only things in them are two sleeve bearings, a thrust bearing and sealing rings. Cleanup is the important part. Look at some of the Youtube videos of Dieseltech Ron on it.

Thanks for the advice, I watched the video and it seemed pretty straightforward. I don't think my turbo seals are the issue, the smoke appears to white in color. The van sat for about six months with no use. I think stiction is a likely culprit. I'm going to change my oil and add Archoil 9100. I know Archoil is not a cure-all, however, we'll see if it makes a difference in my case.
