I am DONE with Caterpillar turbos. The stupid core charges they have on those things is just ridiculous.
I guess the exhaust and compressor wheel on the BW 199119 is very close to the 6689.
I am due for a turbo on my E model sooner than later. Couple of weeks ago when I put my head gasket on I noticed a small piece missing off the leading edge of one of the compressor fins. Not good for harmonics that is for sure. I know of one guy who put a HX 60 Holset from a 525 N-14 on a E. Flipped the exhaust manifold upside down and plumbed it all up. He said it worked good, but we know how that can work.
