the only problem i see is the way the exhaust is routed
changing the exhaust side is simple so if its cheaper then
what could it hurt

what is a/r
A/R is area / radius, which really means the distance of the wheel to the center of the housing inlet. The larger the number, the bigger the inlet, and the slower the response. A T-6 footprint isn't good for a single turbo, at least not on a 7.3. For a TN turbo, the available A/R's would be .58, .68, .81, .96. For a Garrett, 1.01, 1.15, 1.28, and 1.44.

Well, on the kit that we made we did consult Blackwidow but i guess we should have called you? :confused:
We are always available for counsel...I do not know Black Widow but they are doing something right becuase they have a great reputation and offer excellent products/services..We go beyond just the light duty trucks, we are in the OEM, Marine, Industrial, Agricultural, Construction etc, even gassers..What we don't do is tuning, we don't tune anyones rigs, our scope is the forced induction system and related sub-systems...

Actually, no other thread needed. I used an Aurora 5k (K31) a couple years ago, and it worked well. Don't recommend spray with it.

Here is some more info, and what it might fit.

K-31's are Detroit 60 Series Upgraded to 500HP plus vehicles. THey have a different FORGED wheel vs, the Garrett GT4294...If you don't mess with them too much they are a tough turbo...Ask Kevin at sledpuller motorpsorts...
