That turbo is vaporware. It doesn't exist. My advise is don't trust Trusted Performance.

If you want a nice upgraded Turbo that is a bolt on replacement and will easily make 550 rwhp with a set of 190 cc sticks get a Garrett GT3788VA Powermax. They can be had new for less than $1200 with no core required.

Use a caliper and measure the compression and exhaust sides.

You mean they actually got it out the door? It's been 2 months out for years lol. Don't count on them to stand behind their products if your truck blows up because of them.

There's been a lot of people that have questioned stuff from Trusted over the past year. Most haven't liked the answers.....

How long have you this turbo? Did you buy it new from them? Wondering because as PGreenSVT mentioned, their turbo's should "be ready in a couple of months" and then the poo hit the fan.
