Turbo rebuild kit

From what I've been reading, the weak point in the stock 7.3 turbo is the thrust bearing that only gives 270* of bearing surface and limits oil distribution somewhat. I've found a couple of kits that offer a 360* thrust bearing and claim to increase oil distribution to the bearing/shaft. Has anyone tried one of these kits? Any comments on whether this might increase the durability of the stock center section at higher pressures? A search didn't turn up anything specific

And then the first hit I got when I went back to Google was this Turbo Rebuild Kit w/360 thrust

Duh. Oh well...any new info?

I've been running a 360 kit from Barder Turbo and a WW2 from Dieselsite and have been please with the two so far. Only have about 10k miles on em now so only time will tell the real durability of them.
