I've found a vf39 with 5,400 miles on it . The guy says " it has the typical vf39 hairline crack by the wastegate but does not affect the performance" should I or should I not buy this turbo ? Thanks for any info.

The hairline cracks are perfectly typical.

How much is he asking?

Assuming everything is legit then yes that sounds like a good deal.

i heard you get that crack when you boost while the engine is cold. truth? fact? speculation? appears the crack doesn't effect performance. $250 is a really good deal. they go for $400 or more on ebay generally.
