Riff Raff boots and Kc38r turbo

Just want to give a shout out to Clay at CNC Fabrication. I didn't think I was ever going to get my turbo to line up with my spider with the new boots on. I worked for an hour and a half then gave up for the night and emailed Clay. He promptly sent me a email the next morning telling me to trim the boots. I trimmed 1/4 inch off passenger side boot and 1/8 inch off drivers side and the spider with a little push finally set right down and lined up. Thank you Clay for a great turbo and great customer service.

See attached photo. This is why I said clay. I talked to clay at riff raff and also cory at cnc but my email from CNC came from a clay at cnc.

Hi I am also looking at the kc38r for my truck. I was wondering what turbo you had be for the KC turbo. Also how does it run with the 180/30 injectors? Thanks. Mike

Re: Riff Raff boots and Kc38r turbo

The turbo before the Kc38r wal a stock turbo with 360 bearing and SPX 5 high 5 low blades built by spx in California. It worked well but was not the performance that was after. The Kc38r is the best turbo I have used. It spools up fast and my truck just loves it.also exhaust temps are slightly cooler. My injectors will be installed this coming Monday. I will let you know how things work out after they are installed. Jelibuilt is doing my tuning.
