It could be just as simple as he wants to wait until after the new year before making himself really busy in getting these things out the door. Who knows...

I just know that this is what Charlie told me today via email. I am comfortable in waiting anyway as I am still on the fence about tearing out a perfectly good and efficient turbo that runs cool even when towing 12K lbs up a grade.
Have heard several things. I was told bearings. Is what will be available after the first the same or additional changes?

Thanks. Me too! With ExPACamper back up and running I have hope that my truck will return to the living also. I had a couple of days this week set aside to get back in there (haven't touched it since Halloween...about 7 weeks) but the holidays have taken that away. Hobby shop is closed next week so it won't get any attention until the new year. My registration is due next month and this is a smog check year for me so I have to get it together, running, tunes tweaked, and smog tested by the 15th. I'm not interested in getting a PNO and going through the hassle to "re-activate" the truck when I'm done. Plus this gives me a deadline to actually get the truck back on the road. The sad part is that since I've had my new job (15 months) I've been driving my dad's Chevy for work for 1/2 of that. My truck has become the "go to" joke at the office.

I think the manual trans has a lot to do with that as well. What is the web site for that turbo? I forgot to save it.

Here you are sir. Charlie Fish (KC Turbo owner) has always been honest and great to deal with from what I have experienced and been told.

As I understand it, this is a Garrett 38R on steriods that performs a lot like a Borg Warner SXE turbo without the T4 mount and associated hardware.

Thank you Sous. I'll save it this time. I think the exhaust side showed a much bigger wheel in there. That should help with spool up I would think.
