I know. It was loose when I got it home so I pulled it out while I was putting it back in and being a clutz, I dropped it and it went right in to the drain in my shop so now I need to go get another one.

Well I bought it from James @ Rollin Smoke Diesel. He had it on his truck for 60 miles and didnt like it because his truck wasnt tuned. I paid $1000 cash for it. This kit retails for $3500 from BD. But with the Looney tune, This thing runs like a raped ape. Turbo lag is similar with the stock but I'd say it's a fraction slower to spool but I can deal with that for the added boost. I peak out right between 35 and 40psi boost but i can tell exactly because my gage only goes to 35 and it's between the "S" and the "T" of boost.
