Are these things still out there? I'm thinking about selling mine, is it worth anything? I don't come here much anymore, but I recall lots of drama about these turbo's.

I have one from the first in-house batch made. Forget what mileage it was put on (think low 150's) but it's been a couple years now and my truck has almost 180k on it. So it's been on for 25k +/- towing miles. Never had any problems with it and my only complaint is fuel mileage dropped across the board a few mpg with it's install.

Ive got a earlier than BB Turbonetics. Its a journal bearing charger. Over 50k on it. Messed with it the other day (knock on wood) theres no shaft play at all. Been a good charger for me. Prolly being held back by it a little. Not enough to justify spending another 2000 for a little more. Gonna throw some hybrids at it here in a few weeks. Dont know how it compares to the 38r noise wise. But it sure does sing.

Mine treated me good. Better than I realized. Curosity got to me and got a 38R. I did get a good deal on the 38, but not enough to do over again. Should have bought injectors instead and waited to out grow it if I did.

I'm talking to a guy on here about switching my turbo for one of his van turbos. He's got both the 1.0 & 1.15... which would be better for a tow rig that's gotta go back to DD status for awhile? Or am I being dumb and should keep what I've got?

Mine has over 50K on it with a lot of towing, but I too get curious about another turbo, but I think I will do the injectors first and see how it goes? It does make some noise, but I like that!!
