Turbo thoughts?

Well I was looking and it appears these stock HY35 turbos are very restrictive!

And I wanted to get every ones opinion on which direction I should go towards,

I was looking at a HX35 or 40

S300 that a buddy of mine gave to me

The edge replacement turbo.

Which way do you think would be best for my current set up, to maintain low egt's and one that would be strong for future power gains.

Thank you,

Of those if that s300 is in good shape and a decent size it would work great. What are the specs on it? HY35 is gone from mine. If that doesn't work out I would go with a hx35 they can be picked up used for a decent price. If I am going to pay out to get a new turbo I would stay away from the 40 they are known for weak shafts. I don't know anything about the edge turbos.

Like said above, the s300 or the hx35 are probably your best picks. What are your plans for the truck, what are the current mods, and how is it used? Also what are the specs on the s300.

you will need mods for sure if you co with the 3000 or you will have way to much lag...the 35 wouldnt be bad thats what i did untill i get to drastic with mods...

it all really depends on what s300 it is. mine ran fine with 40hp injectors, it's a 62/71/14. The 100's work better but I had no issues with my 40's in it. I wouldn't go bigger than that and not be expecting lag. A small exhaust housing would help I think the 12 would be better on the auto but I am going with more fuel.

Even the ones for the fords came with a bunch of different options. However, I know that it is pretty common for those guys to run 66mm chargers, so that would be my guess as to what it is. The ex. housing should have the size cast into it, and you can always pull the housing off and measure the inducer or small diameter of the compressor to figure that out.

I have heard a lot of bad things about garrett turbos lately but don't think it was in reference to the BB
