Modifying the K26 Turbo

I do not believe that anyone likes to up-size the compressor wheel in the
K26. I have heard that nobody likes to machine the cold side of the K26.
Innovative turbo or someone may have done this at one time but they had
such poor luck that I believe they stopped offering the service.

A larger compressor wheel can be fitted to the K24. A year or two ago
Majestic Turbo down in Waco Texas quoted me ~$700 for a K24 rebuild with a
larger compressor wheel and the hot side clipped.

The compressor wheel is from a turbo used in a tractor - Deutz I think.
