I noticed a diffence in low the end. Make sure you have a 03 turbo or you will have to buy a housing for it to work

Not saying your wrong but I've seen several places that say drop in for 03-07 factory turbo for 399.99 does that come with the other parts?

well its false information, they're direct fit for 03 and early 04 turbos only, 04.5+ need a machined compressor housing or an 03 turbo to make it direct fit.

So the housing itself needs to be made larger for it to fit inside? i thought the diff was the number of veins in the turbo one's got ten and the later one's 13-15

That's on the exhaust turbine side. The batmowheel is a compressor wheel.

Yeah I know that. But I didn't know the housing was different thought the only difference was in the number of veins.
