Well Iv got a hunch that my turbo is about to go KA-BOOM and am needing a little lesson on what kind of turbos to be looking for and the differences in them. Iv seen some on ebay for some good prises but am woundering what the difference is between a 1.00 1.10 and 1.15, housings and compressior wheel?. Everybody claims to have this and that but from experience what should i get for a truck that is driven everyday, pulls a trailor everyonce and awhile and in the future going to have a big chip on it. Iv got a new down pipe and stright lines to.????????????????? O yea and around 650 bucks to if possible.

well lets start here what do you mean by big chip . what kind of tunes and tuner where do you live elivation plays a key part. are you planing on ever puting stage 1s in it. and personal pref the turbos on e-bay like from rons turbo are not worth ur time. also in a obs i dont think a wicked wells worth it

What makes you think yours is going "Kaboom" ? How the fins look? what kine boost do you see?

If your keeping stock injectors And just getting a chip, A Stock turbo should do you fine

I'd pull the intake and check the turbo for play before you go dropping money on another one. A little side to side play is normal, any in and out play is not. Also the wheel should not contact the housing.

You don't really have to worry about hurting a stock turbo with just a chip, the most you'll make is about 260hp at the rear wheels. The OBS trucks have too small of injectors to do much. Now if you get injectors that changes, I killed a few stockers back in the day with stage II's. ;)

As for Ron, other members as well as myself have bought turbo rebuild kits and compresor wheels from him, and he was great to deal with. I would expect the same from his complete turbos.

Holy Crap whats that piston out of in the picture??? And what i mean by Big Chip is like a Tony Wildman 6 pos. or a TS performance 6 pos. one or the other in the Future. I live in the Hills and hallars of western Ky and dont know what the elivation is. I really dont know about putting new injectors in it yet probly not though. Im trying to save all the money i can for college.

Well dont have a boost gauge yet but am working on it. The main reason i think somthing is wrong is when i bought the truck there was a metal wire tie riged up from a linkage on the turbo on the exhaulst side to the motor hitch. (That place were you can hook your motor hoist to too pull the motor) Any ways when i cut the wire tie. i started having this awfull sound form the exhaulst and when it makes the sound it boggs down my motor. :confused: I aint got a clue what it is but i made another wire tie and fixed it again. WHATS THAT GOT TO DO WITH IT??????????

sounds like your exhaust backpressure valve was rigged open somehow
Why would it try shuting on me while the truck is just running tho? And is that a stack through your hood? whats that sound like?

There is most likely something wrong with it causing it to try and stay closed. Once cut the wire it is closing and shutting the exhaust flow off......thus bogging.

Reach down where it connects at the pivot, slide the keeper back and drop the arm off.

Its like a little flapper. Wire it back open and see if it fixes it.

hahaha thats a piston out of my 6.0 . well first off look at ur wheel and then ur housing for scraches or chips on the fin next your looking for side to side play a little up in down is normal but u want no side to side and if it has side to side it will have to much up and down . were your at you could probably get away with the 1.00 housing u will see some better spool up but if you ever plan on doing even stage 1s ur best off with a stock housing. so check it out then well go from there

Yea i wired it open again like it was and it fixed the problem. I think im just going to leave it wired up instead of un hookin wires or linkages- i might mess er up more that i want to.

I'm willing to bet your turbo is fine and it's just your ebpv that's giving you problems. If it's opening and shutting randomly then your valve is bad. Just wire it open or replace it.

Still won't hurt you to check for any turbo shaft play
