It's interesting to see how the nozzles move but it ain't rocket science but I guess a lot of maths when designing. It looks like the old turbo leaked from the same point so will not worry unless it gets really bad, but interesting to see how these things work.
tipex the old casings where the 10mm bolts line up wont be far off on some have indents
