I replaced the H1C turbo on my truck Thursday with a used one with less miles, the old one just locked up and it is amazing how much of a difference there is in the two. The truck is alot quicker and seems smoother, im not sure but the exhaust housing is smaller, would this cause it to be quicker?

Getting one that works properly is the key. You said the old one locked up. That means it was chewing itself up on the bearings and shaft. Which means it was hard to turn making less boost than it should have.

If you look at the housing where it bolts up to the manifold, there are numbers and that will tell you what size it is. It will say 21 or 18, or maybe even 16 if someone put a smaller housing on that turbo.
