Towing Turbo?

Looking to get a new turbo. I drive the truck everyday and just tow with it. I was thinking the BD special. Something is a 62/14. That is what i read is a good turbo. Also where should i go to get it? Is it true that the stock head gasket can only take 45psi of boost and the head studs can take 55pis of boost?

Thanks

BD Super B is a 57/65/14, as is the S300G and Scheid Lightning turbo. All three are fast spooling towing turbos, good for abour 40, maybe 45 psi. A PhatShaft 62 will spool fast (62/65/12, 45psi) but a Super PhatShaft 62 (62/71/14) will have better exhaust flow, lower drive pressure, and lower EGT's than a PhatShaft. I noticed you have an auto tranny, how tight/loose is your converter? A friend of mine with a CR has a built auto, intake, exhaust, a Smarty, and a SPS 62, his TC is set a little looser and he loves towing with it.

It's hard saying cause the truck is getting a rebuild in one week on the tranny. All new parts. The stock turbo is all jacked up and i just read in the mags that a 62/14 is good for towing. IS there any place i should call?

Let me get this straight you are running 40 hp injectors and a fuel box and that is all the fuel you have added. Then rebuild your HX35.

My EGT's hit 1500 when I'm on it. I Hit 35 pounds of boost. I don't think a rebuild will do it.

Are you still running a stock exhaust system?

The Super B Special is a 64/71/14. That's getting pretty big for towing, unless like I said you have a loose TC to get some air moving before you really load the engine.

It said 4" pipe, that could be a 4 inch down pipe or almost anything.

I am just going to leave you two alone after all you know it all.
