Garrett Ball Bearing Turbo Question

I just installed a Garrett Ball Bearing Turbo after a bearing/spool failure on my stock turbo. Now part of the question is, are these things supposed to be this noisy?

While driving down the freeway at a constant speed the turbo howls loud at 70mph about 4 pounds of boost. It sounds like the same noise when the old turbo failed. And as the turbo spools up the noise goes away and the normal turbo sound comes back.

Reason I ask this is because when I bought this thing and took it out of the box, wiped off the drool I noticed the exhaust side spool had a lot of movement 1/16 of a inch or so. It wasn't in and out movement but up, down, side to side. It didn't hit the housing but it was close.

So the over all question is, is this normal for the Garrett Ball Bearing Turbo.

Next question, what should the next mod I do next?

Truck will run alot better with custom tunes. They can make your tunes to match with your turbo...

Or he could throw some 230ish Hybrids then get the chip, and lose a nut in the Race setting the first time he steps on it

Get tunes first
