I made an error in the K27 designation. Mine is a 7006. Here is what my turbo guy has sent me;
"There are a couple of noticeable differences, one the 3ld has a larger diameter turbine journal shaft, can absorb and displace heat a little better. Two the 3ld has the turbine end bearing closer to the turbine head, hence not the same amount of unsupported weight as that of the K27 7006. Three the 3ld runs at a slower shaft speed to that of the K27."
