I appreciate your suggestion and I'm so torn right now. But as far as selling it, I would NEVER sell someone a turbo if I thought there was a chance it would give them problems. I worked hard and saved up for all my truck mods. I would feel horrible if some guy worked hard and saved to buy my turbo and it blew up on him. If it was completely rebuilt and certified good by a shop that's a different story.

A smaller wheel I know would be nice for spool I know. An HE351 plus a big charger seems to be the cats meow for the dodge guys right now. However what I've experienced on the top end is addicting and I know will only get better going bigger. I still tow 3 trailers for work and a boat in the summer so some suggest staying with the 64 wheel to help get a load moving.

Damn. We dont do things like that to others here. This isnt DF.


Damien, Id just send it in to be looked over/rebuilt by a good, reputable shop. That way you have an expert doing the work, and some reassurance it was done properly.

Like most others have already said. Just rebuild it yourself, kits are cheap and easy to come by and it's not hard...

If you tow a lot I remember Trent saying the best turbo he had for towing was a 62 - 64mm wheel single, being you have compounds I'm sure it's different.

If you decide to go bigger and want to sell this turbo as is let me know, I'd be interested.

Hmmm... I guess that came out wrong!
I am not at all saying to dump a crap turbo on someone else. I also am not saying that turbo is crap. I was thinking as if I was in His situation I'd try a s366. But I would not re-sell it unless it was rebuilt and checked out to be a good turbo to resell.

I know this is not DF guys. That's exactly why I'm here and not there. I am sorry if that comment about "if anything else is wrong with it" offended anyone. Really, I don't throw garbage at other people. I throw it out!

I will def keep this in mind as I truly have not ruled out getting a diff turbo all together. I LOVED this turbo as a single. To be honest, I don't tow anything of substantial weight. I've pulled skid steers around a bit and a small excavator once but normally just tandom axle flatbeds loaded with hardwood flooring and plywood, my 6x12 cargo trailer (floor install equipment and refinishing equipment with dust evacuators), and about 6k worth of boat. I imagine bigger turbos can still handle those jobs.

What about that S371 Trent was talking about last year? He was very happy with its overall driving characteristics.

01_Dmax....good deal.

You can tow 6k with a large turbo. I tow 10k with mine but it takes a watchfull eye and downshifting allot on grades. 6k is no problem.

A good buddy of mine has the s371 and loves it. Another problem for me though lies in the need for fabrication of a different hot pipe should I switch turbos. My BD is waste gated and sits so extremely close to the firewall. My current hot pipe is truly one of and built for that exact turbo not to mention clears stock y bridge and GMC hood tolerances. I'm not a welder and have no fabrication skills. Unfortuneately making a different hot pipe is prob out of the question for me. I'm going to call BD and HTT both in the morning and sort out my rebuild options and report back.

If you only haul that much then I wouldn't be afraid to step up to a large turbo, but I understand the money aspect in that you already have the turbo and I'm thinking it would be cheaper to rebuild than replace.

What ever you decide I'm thinking a little porting/polishing will help the turbo out .

It's killing me not being able to know if my hot pipe would work with your 66 Dustin. I'd do it in a heartbeat. Would I need your pedistal? The turbos are so similar and even have the same waste gate setup.
