I wouldn't even mess around with it. 06's weren't variable either. Just the 07 6.7's. If you want something that'll match the performance a VGT, buy a Garrett Dual Ball Bearing turbo. They sound mean too.

I dont think you could find a way to make the VGT work. They need all kinds of special maps in the trucks ECM to work!

you woulnd need to rewrite the ecm with a newer calibration, and maybe it would work, but then to have it match a ISB vp 44 controled engine, compared to a HPCR, I'm not for sure but i think the ecm are different, the turbo is controled elctronically if i remember right,

Ok thanks i just thought it was like a duramax turbo where u could control it with the controller from PPE which replaces the ecm controlling it.
