Which turbo

i have been reading an listening about turbo talk. elite sells an upgraded vgt and then they have the bb turbos without the vgt. if i am goin to be mainly using the truck for towing and daily driving, when the time comes should i go with the upgraded stock units and the 185 injectors or would that pose a heat issue while towing?

I am not post whoring, I am providing an over abundance of useless opinion.

Re: Which turbo

there tow-power or high-power turbos would work great with the 185s.Id go with the tow-power for great low end response and heavy towing,and the high-power would be my choice for great street able performance and more power than the tow-power turbo can produce you could still tow with this charger it will just be alittle laggier than the tow-power.

Re: Which turbo

Would I need the head studs and the fire ring mod? Just head studs? stock? I dont do any real heavy towing, i keep it under 8k for the most part, i have a camper i tow and a cargo trailer with atvs in it. we do go up to the mountains with the atv trailer though

are you going to be at chapanoke sat night for the pull? Doug has spoke of you quit a bit. He has his truck at your shop waiting on the vgt. Its his fault i am even thinking of this now.

you would not need fire rings,head studs is never a bad idea on a 6.0L but I dont think just putting one of the chargers on we talked about would cause instant head gasket issues,if your not towing over 8k then Id go with the high power charger and have alittle more fun.I should be at chapanoke for the pull,but if Im not there its becuase Im putting my truck back together finally got all my parts in.Know its time to spank some D-max a--.
