I don't see how it would be any better.

I probably missed it, but was the Danville charger a brand new cartridge or a reman?

Either way Iíll let them send me another new one and see how it goes but it thereís any more problems Iím getting my money back and getting something else either a Fleece or DDP or worst case a new stock turbo.

Exactly my thoughts James. I ran a modded vgt on the lmm and blew it up. Swapped to a 369sxe and wondered why I bothered with a modded vgt in the beginning

If the cartridge was brand new, Mark and his team are more or less at the mercy of the Garrett QC.

I told Blake that but I like my turbo brake for pulling heavy. Truck isnít race only or commuting only otherwise I would. Also would need all new plumbing for my kit.

Could always install an exhaust brake kit from Pacbrake or BD and run a s464 in the valley, but with your brake upgrade would you really miss it much?

We talked for a good bit today, if he were to go to a s300sxe in the valley, a 63/68 .83 gated housing would be a excellent choice and what I’d recommend for his driving habits and power goals. I’ve tuned a couple of LMLs with the exact s3/s4 setup and they drive unbelievably well. I’m sure this next charger Mark sends will do the trick though. That way the kit won’t have to be modified. That’s always a pain.

You just let the engine wind up more. Coming down Payson or from the 260 (the retarded hill from strawberry to camp verde) I donít hardly hit the brakes at all but Iím turning about 4k rpm. I17 Iím usually around 3200-3400 max.

Really the worse part about the fix vane is lag. The rest you could get around. The 364sxe would probably be a pretty sweet/fast lighting turbo though.

Agreed. Sell the piping kit, get a kit for an s366 and windmill one of those in. So long as you can get someone to tune it worth a damn I think you will be golden.

Also need to add an exhaust brake if so desired though which is kind of lame.

Going to stick with VGT whether itís Danville or DanĎs or somebody else and at some point if I canít ever get the thing right Iíll just have to go back to a stock turbo
