Tried it out today. Start boost at 3900 since its a lil bigger than my other one but full boost by like 4500or 4600. My boost controller is what helps me spool quicker

the old one was a 57 58 trim, .60AR...there is no shaft play at all. I'm not sure why it smoked a little. Culd be something simple. I just wanted to start with a fresh turbo. The spool that late doesn't bother me one bit. Let's me know I'm not dealing with a baby dick turbo lol
