    Just got a new Garrett GTP38r turbo from full force. It was supposed to be a direct fit but isn’t. The up pipe flange for the old turbo is square but the new turbo only would connect to a round up pipe flange. Is this the wrong turbo or is there a way to adapt it?

    So I posted once before about his and have been doing some research and still haven't figured anything out. I had my 4eod in my 97 7.3 rebuilt about a month and a half ago.
