I do agree the riffraff billet wheels are a great upgrade. I’ve used the harder 360 kit with great results in my old turbo.

Its a GTP 38R , with a billet wheel. If you buy from Riffraff (Maybe I bought it at DP Tuner, cant recall) they supply an option for the billet wheel from factory. Either way, its a beauty, and has a billet wheel from factory. Came in the factory box, unopened. Drop shipped. My old turbo I put it on myself, and it was pre balanced. Since the shaft never came out , the rest and other side was already balance. Its also a beauty, I loved it , but with my upgrades it was prone to burn out eventually. So needed the ball bearing turbo. Thanks for your opinion though.
