Why would you question what Turbonetics told you?
Something lead you to believe they were pulling your leg ?

I bought a GT-K turbo from them and it has ceramic bearings

are you saying this because yours is or because you looked at my pic and you know what the ceramic ball bearing looks like?

Also if they have the numbers and they told you it is, why do you have any doubts that it's not a ceramic BB?

This is what is on the box.

T_SE-BB-H76-68-TUNDO.81

P/N 11299-BB
S/N T-27543
DATE 101207

It is going on a 88' LX with a Boss/Eagle 302 with AFR 185's.

What is is capable of? I would like to see 650-750 rwhp.

Thanks!

That code translates to T-series HP76 compressor, ceramic ball bearing, F1-68 turbine wheel with a tangential undivided .81 A/R housing. Basically a T76 with an F1-68 turbine wheel. That set up should be good for 1000 CHP of air on that motor """""
