They are a variable geometry turbo and the electronics to hook one up may be a little challenging, however I've never looked into it myself. Not sure what the compressor dimensions are either, it may be a little small for the work it would require.

yeah i was looking at it myself i have a complete 6.0 out of a 2005 F350 guy ran it out of oil and got it for 500 bucks! plus i have a 8.3 V8 cummins complete with an HX-50 might think on putting that on. im running the bullydog tripledog dwonloader and edge juice with Attitude level 6 unlock and 200HP injectors and VP-monster pump stage 2 all on a stock turbo!!! i cant build any boost up past 24psi and it surges back and forth from 24psi to 0psi. i also have another 2001 cummins with auto trans and 100HP injetors and exhuast thats it on it and was wondering how i can turn the boost up maybe adjust the wastegate??

hx50 isn't a great single either, unless you could find a small enough exhaust housing for it. And it wouldn't be a great primary in a twins set up with with that much fuel either. It would alright as a primary under the stock charger on that 01 with 100hp sticks and a box. If you've already got the turbo off that 6.0 pop the compressor side off and measure the wheel or ask around about what comp wheel and flow it has. Then maybe look at what wiring there is for the VG housing, you may be able to make it work. I'd say its definitely too small for the truck with a lot of fuel though.

yeah i did some checkin around i found a turbo on craigslist its a phat ******* 76. comes with housing downpipe intercooler tubes and all the goodies for $900 and its off a 2000 cummins with auto.im thinkin that might just be my best bet. i dont really drive the truck hard maybe a couple burnouts here and there but mostly towing and out in the sand dunes with my fifth wheel. i have a bullydog outlook with power enhancement and a hypertech III programmer for my other truck but want to get the edge juice with att. for it since it kicks *** on my other truck know anyone up for a trade both for just the edge juice with attitude??? both of mine are worth $836 works great together makes about 150HP combined over stock

I was wondering that too. I've never heard of a phat Ba$tard 76. Only Phat ba$tard I know of is a 95mm compwheel and way too huge.
