original 1000-mile K16 turbines or rebuilt ones?

Car is 2002 996 turbo and 100K miles.

I think I have a leaking turbine seal, oil of 500cc has been found in one of the intercooler, when new coils were installed. I come across a supposedly slightly used turbines that were removed and kept in storage with 1000 miles on them for over 15 yrs and then the rebuilt ones. Which is a better pick if prices are $1300, about the same for either. how easily can seals go bad, simply by sitting in storage?

And... is leaking oil a big issue? I hv no idea how long it took to come to 500cc in the intercooler. The car drives fine. The boost builds up to 0.6 fairly fast. but 0.7 is harder and much longer time. (I remember seeing 0.8, but that was long, long time ago. LOL)

Any advices would be appreciated!!
