came across a new turbo

Now before someone makes a comment about the company understand that I've ran their turbos on my still and evo with great success.
This is a cxracing super large turbo. I'm not able to get any real specs or info. I asked for cfm, but no luck.

That appears to be a stock turbo with a wicked wheel and bigger housing is all.

That's what I figured. I've been on the lookout for a used 38r and keep striking out

Just another Turbonetics/Big Bad Woof/Flavor of the day knock off.

If your wanting a 38R, just keep waiting.

Or skip the drop in crap and get a mid frame sized turbo.

You've been telling me to do that for a couple years lol.
I just haven't found any good threads on some solid options for stock or single shots.
Plus the cost increase. Wouldn't I need a t3 setup

T3 is a OBS or small turbo set up...

You would want a T4 or T4i set up... They come up all the time for sale, or Irate diesel has a pretty nice set up.

I built my own but I have a nice shop and mock up motor.

So could someone actually change the compressor housing and wheel out to receive the same results and keep the "drop in" setup?

You could install a RiffRaff compressor wheel...

The size of the compressor housing does not do anything. A ported housing simply helps stop surge. It does not flow anymore air.

I was aware of the WWII and RiffRaff options for wheels, I just didnt know if the large housing and different design really did antything?

No, The turbos like mentioned above do not add anything.
