Because of the popularity of the KC38r turbo for the 7.3, We have made a smaller version of the turbo for those running average size injectors. Thats right, the Tiger Turbo is back! We have spent several years of R&D modifying and battle testing our original ball bearings, so that would could bring you the best and most reliable ball bearing design KC Turbos has ever produced. The 63mm compressor wheel is drastically different, It is a larger, 7x7 wheel and is modeled after the 366sxe compressor wheel. It Has the same profile, shape, and blade style, except it is reverse rotation. This wheel is not only bigger, but stronger. It has thicker blades, thicker hub, and thicker backing, this makes it much less prone to fatigue and wheel burst. The turbine wheel is also much larger, 73mm vs the old 68mm and increased shaft thickness from a 6.4mm to a 7.5mm. 

**EXHAUST BRAKES:  We get asked a lot about exhaust brakes and if they work with our turbos.  We have found that some brands have clearance issues and might cause the brake to hinder performance, rub the turbine wheel, or cause other issues.  These brakes typically use some sort of flapper to close which causes extreme exhaust back pressure to aide in braking.  This can be hard on a turbo and motor and is not recommended.  It will be up to the customer to verify fitment and functionality.**

**Our turbos are designed to fit directly in 7.3 equipped pick-up trucks. Although our turbos can drop into 7.3 equipped Vans, you will need to modify the turbo intake boot and down-pipe for proper fitment**
