aftermarket turbos

Setting my sights on the next project and looking for information/prices on aftermarket turbos. I pull a 24' travel trailer, race bmw's, and generally drive like a maniac. I'd also pull a sled once in a while if given the opportunity, not often though. Twins would be nice, but I'm not looking to spend that much yet, just looking for a good solid turbo.

Send a PM over to DmaxalliTech, or give him a call -- his shop is Merchant Automotive in Holland, Michigan.

Eric has worked with the Auroras, BDs and the new Garretts and can give you an idea what would be best for your application.

I run it, and I haven't had any problems with it, ever. Let me know also if you would like any info. Great all around turbo, daily driving, towing, and racing. It will support up to 650 RWHP. I love it, I went up the chiriaco pass on my way to arizona on friday, and I cruised up it going 70 MPH, towing a 13k pound trailer, at 1200* max egts.

Engine is apart and in the garage
Goal is to have it done by the end of this summer.

What program did you have loaded while towing? I have no experience w/ garrett, does the turbo come with a new d-pipe? Thanks for the info.

Load level 3 on my PPE tuner. It is the newer style 10 level tuner. The turbo does come with a down pipe.
