I just bought a "pt"4788, the T4 based variety. Not sure if that is relevant info for you.

I know its not the same but had no idea why you were asking the question since there was no context.

Are you looking for vendors or prices or something else?

just looking for some-1 that has a gt4788 that they bought. i have a new one that i was going to use in a twin turbo but decided to go 275 radial and need a bigger A/R housing and i dont have an invoice to exchange the housing to a 1.39 so im asking around if some-1 with the same turbo will let me use theirs to do the exchange. my turbo is new and dont have the money to dump another $500 on the housing. they will do the exchange for me as long as i have the invoice. thats my problem right now

I would lean on them harder. They have to keep invoices like that on file.

Assuming this is Precision, they have been more then reasonable with me on a couple of things lately that the didn't necessarily have to be.

Sometimes it is worth it to keep calling until you get the answer you are looking for...

Make the same post over at the turbo forums, your chance of finding someone there is better

Frank at PSI had a GT4788 sitting on top of his tool box for the past year or so, not sure what he is doing with it but it could have the right housing for you.

He was trying to use it to coerce me to putting a large frame turbo on the car.
