Ball Bearing CHRA for stock turbo

I was browsing around today and noticed that somebody is making a complete replacement ball bearing center section for stock 99.5-up 7.3 turbos. Anybody using one or have any results from this setup? I would think it is asking for trouble with surge without a ported compressor shroud....

Re: Ball Bearing CHRA for stock turbo

Id be willing to bet that is mislabeled and is actualyl something else, like the replacement cartrige for the gtp38r turbo.

Re: Ball Bearing CHRA for stock turbo

i was wondering if that was the case.... would make alot more sense... that's a bunch of money for something that only helps spoolup... the 38r has a bigger wheel so you get ball bearing enhancements with more airflow...

Re: Ball Bearing CHRA for stock turbo

Why would anyone spend $1,250 for a BB center section? Esp when you can get a whole new turbo for a few clams more!!!!

Re: Ball Bearing CHRA for stock turbo

If its 1250 bucks then im almost positive its the replacement cartrige for the 38r. They are not rebuildingable but if somebody needs one "rebuilt" they can reuse their exhaust and compressor housings and save some dough. The 1200ish price tag is what that cartrige goes for. It is the 38r center section and new wheels.

The 38r has a larger turbine and compressor wheel, as well as larger a/r on teh housings. Everything all together is larger.
