Is this the same turbo that came on the early batch of 6.0s that were recalled? A guy I know never took his back in because he liked the way it sounded. Damn thing sounds like a jet engine when he takes off.

negatory, not that turbo, this is a replacement for only the 7.3 IMO the whistle is great!

If any of yall are [email protected] has a 38r he has on special right now. I contacted him about a tuner and he told me he had one turbo left for a special price of $1500. I would take it but i cant afford it right now. but if you know those turbos theyre normally in the $1700 range. He only has that one left....if he hasnt sold it yet.

i am going to pull the intake off and see if there is any rubbing going on... if there is i would imagine it should be fairly evident...
