Default greddy franken-turbo'ing?

anyone ever swap the greddy housings (or even just the turbine housing) onto any of the other td04 variants out there?

just curious, as i investigate alternatives to mail-away rebuilds, as none of the shops i can find locally seem to want to do JUST a balance on a rebuild that i bring them (which, i can't fully blame them).

Nope. The 14b/16g is a TD05-H vs. the TD04 that is found in the Greddy kit. Completely different turbine wheel/exhaust housing.
