What Turbo?

I was wondering if any body had some oppinions on which turbo to get. I cant believe its hung on this long but the stock tranny is about toast and when I replace that I want to start thinking about a new turbo. Whats a good all around turbo. I know you can find hx35/40 for a bit cheaper but will there be a noticeable diffrence? i want the turbo to be able to handle injectors and possibly dv's as they will be next in line. The main problem I have with the stock turbo is to much juice so I get high egts. I can manage it buy keeping my foot out of it on long pulls but it makes it difficult with my 8,000 pd trailer. I dont want to get a new turbo for the mods I have now and out grow it when I get injectors or DV's because then I will have to worry about DV's. The pocket book isnt going to be very big after a tranny either so if there is a slightly cheaper approach to this that would be great. Thanks.

I would go with the s300 it's good for 450hp and you can get it for about 1000 to 1200 off of e-bay take a look at it! It comes with the down pipe and the clamps!

What are your power goals? The specific dv's and ijnectors will make a big difference in what turbo will work good and wat wil be a waste of money.

The hx35/40 nybrids are good and cheap for up to 400hp. An s300, like a BD single, is a good trubo for up to 425, the s300 variants are good for above that. It all depends on your power goals.

how does the spool-up on these turbos (hybrid and s300) compare to stock?? at some point, i'll be looking at turbos, too. my situation will be offroad and won't want to have large amounts of lag.

There made for the 5.9 so lag won't be an issue. With more fuel you need more air these turbo's will give you more air and less restriction. Look at this best deal I've found so far you can make an offer! http://cgi.ebay.com/Dodge-Cummins-5-...QQcmdZViewItem Enjoy!

Their made for the Caterpillar C7, but they do work well on the 5.9L up to 450hp.

I put mine on today, had an issue with the oil feed and drain you need an adapter for the supply line m12 by 1.5 o-ring seal and a fitting to attach the line got them from the local hyd line shop and then you will have to "time it or clock it" to match then get out your big hammer and modify the drain tube so it doesn't interfere with the waste gate arm other than that it bolted right up! Now where did I put those DV's? Anybody know how to adjust the waste gate on these???

well I took it for a drive and was very impressed I drive at 75 and I run 500 deg on the egt was 8 to 900 stock and the boost is 0 this should really help my MPG i floored it and the power roll on is fast and furious! I would recommend this turbo as a first step on the power build After all the basic fuel mods! Wish there was a dyno near by so i could see the #'s!

Was the cartridge not threaded for the feed line? The S300G's I have installed will accept the stock oil feed fitting since the HX35 uses the same size and pitch.
