OBS exhaust housings are more loose. SD's use the wheels for surge. OBS trucks would seem to have less problems with that.

I feel ya bro. Not everyone has tons of money to throw at their trucks. Try it! As long as nothing contacts the cover, I say you might see some reduced EGT's if it does in fact work. What mods do you have?

Im pretty sure you would have to pull the whole turbo and pedistal out to do this so why not upgrade to a d66?
Kinda hard coming up with $1200 of extra money.

true but as he has stated before "its a farm truck, the only reason he went with stage 1's is cause his stockers were bad"

I have an obs turbo with a superduty wheel sitting in my garage, it fits in and should work but I havent put it in am truck to see if I can feel a differance yet.
I doubt it'll give ya much gain though the only reason I did it was because I pulled the weel out of the obs turbo so a buddy could use it as a wicked wheel in his 02

well i may be wrong but i figured it flow quit a bit over the stock obs wheel and housing? and i think you can use more than just the superduty style but cant find the specs on other garret turbos in that family!
