Turbo Shaft rpms & van turbo?

Does anyone know what the shaft rpms are for a stk turbo on a 2003 7.3?
and does anyone know if the center section is the same for all garrett 38T the stk 2003 7.3 turbo?

Thanks for the answers.

Now i'm not 100% but i thought i read somewhere of the turbo spinning upwards of 25-30,000 rpm's......as for the turbo's , i put an 02 model off a 350 on my 2000 model Ex. I hope the center section mount is the same , if not its holding up well so far, and no more pedestal o-ring leaks !!

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's modded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC's poo on any of it, never will.

All the drop in 38's have the same center sections.

The reason the van turbo works a bit better for larger injectors and such is because of the larger exhaust housing.

Most smaller turbos run 0-100,000rpms, while larger turbos will run 0-75,000rpms
