Super B

Considering one of these turbos. A friend is selling hs truck, and asked me if I want the turbo off of it. I'm not really sure if it's the right model for me, because I don't have any info on them yet.

Any advice?

My setup listed in my signature line will be installed next week. The tranny is getting upgraded this week.

I use my truck for towing occasionally (7000 pound trailer), and normal driving.

My concern is that the Super B will spool slowly, and make too much boost, as my head is all stock.

Thanks,
Chad

My signature doesn't show up! I'll figure it out in a bit.


100 plate, BHAF, 3000 GSK, 4" pipe, Isspro guages, ATS torque converter and valve body. Stock otherwise.

the B supports like 425 horses, so it'll probably alright, it'll definitely cool it off, look, if the guy's giving it ot you take it, try it and see what you think

It will spool a little slower than your stocker, but will not be undriveable. As for boost, I would be more concerned at this point as to if you have enough fuel for this turbo.

I think the super b single is set around 40psi. It should spool only a hair slower than stock fro what I've heard

If you can get it for a good deal (they are only $1200 new), then I'd say go for it. Make sure to get a downpipe for it since its a true 4"outlet.

Thanks for the replies folks. I'll see what I can get it for, maybe including the down pipe. Right now, I'm just excited to get what I have sitting in the garage installed on my ride. Had no plans for a turbo at this point. This just sort of fell in my lap.

Decided to pass it on to another friend that has plans for more fuel than I do. I didn't really like the idea of an even slower turbo than stock, especially when I don't really NEED the extra boost right now.

Thanks again for the input.
