I hear this is a very popular turbo in the duramax world. (I have a Dodge 5.9l and am thinking about useing this turbo)I have not found to much info about this turbo? My question is, What are you guys doing about the turbo not having a wastegate? Some people were saying they dont need wastegates but I was thinking of runing an external one. What kinda boost are you guys seeing out of this turbo? thanks

i have one on my 6.0, right at 50psi, made 630hp
but talk about LAG, not a turbo if you want to tow, well at least on a 6.0

I personally believe that the "lost wastegate" is a very important element that is essential for extended WOT use. Having a physical "cieling" on turbo work performed is nice peace of mind also.
