^^^ this!

are you running the stg2r vane table? That might be the quickest way to tell. Compare your tune to the stock table if you don't know.

Measuring it will not tell you if it is an R or not. The vanes and vane plate is where the difference is. Measuring will tell you if it is a 68mm obviously. I'm not 100% sure if Mark had the R turbos built around the factory housings. Was really thinking it was only on the 3794-4094 base. That front cover appears to be a stock cover.

Hey all I'm trying to say is if it were me I'd drop it and sell it. Those turbos are OK but not high performance by any means.

Ummm.. you need to find a new forum.. this turbo talk coming from a guy with a cast wheel 6.0 turbo as his avatar

Mark / Danville has made more power, went faster with a vgt turbo than anyone.

Not high performance? That 68mm stg2r will do 850hp by itself! I'm gonna be twinning over mine and be pushing 1000hp

I build turbos for all trucks that just happens to be one of my favorites. I own a duramax and build more duramax turbos than others. 850 HP depends on a lot more factors then just that turbo bud. Key word "twinning"

Look, maybe you build turbos.. maybe your full of shit.. but until you post info like mark does with every exact detail showing what's he is doing to make power and backing it up at the track then just pipe down a little.

What's the name of your shop? If you build alot of turbos someone around here must know who you are.

I'm not denying mark went faster with a vgt turbo and can build excellent better than me he probably can. I'm not trying to say I'm the best turbo builder in all of diesel history. I have a lot of experience and know a thing or too and all I was saying was I'd choose a different turbo then that if he he had the funds. If not so be it.

Ok... so why would you choose a different turbo than a 68 stage 2 R?

I'd like to know what you would recommend too..

I wanted that turbo so bad but the proper tuning was just never there for the lml��. They sure are a nasty turbo from all the info I've gathered. Wasn't it mark that put down 650. Stock injectors and cp3? I'm not sure what my truck is making but i know I'd be plenty content with 650 haha.

Well for one we don't even know if its an R yet cause he hasn't dropped it and measured the vanes. And the PTE and BW SXE are better. Precision makes great turbos
