will this turbo(H2E) bolt on to my stock exhaust manifold? I have really high egts and was told to get an hx40 exhaust hosing but dont know what i have to do to switch it all around. Which would be better?

a larger exhaust housing will help cool egt's a little, but will cost you a little spool up. You really need more air. It doesn't sound like you have that much fuel, a 35/40 hybrid might work well.

As for the H2e, you don't want to run that. I have one sitting here, it will be way too laggy to use if you want to drive on the street at all. Even with lots of fuel, its kind of a pig as far as single chargers go. Anyways, with all that said, it won't bolt up to your stock manifold anyways, it has a t4 flange and stock is a t3. You need a manifold with the proper flange, or a bigfoot adapter.

Thats a really big turbo for the fuel you've got according to your signature. I don't think you'll be able to spool it w/o a **** load of nitrous.

How bad are your egts exactly? You might be able to get away w/ an HX 40/35 hybrid. It'll have the hx40's compressor wheel on the 35 so you can you your stock downpipe and its a drop in. HTT A 60/16 should give you enough air for 425hp.

If you need more I recommend looking into an s300 (like bd's super single) or variant like htt's or industrial injections phatshaft series. They do require a 4" downpipe though.

If you really want to run an h2e then you'll need a new downpipe possibly and exhaust adapter and maybe a new intake pipe.

Thanks alot, I haven't had my truck that long, i'm learning though. You guys have saved me alot of money so far. Look at these 2 item #'s from ebay and let me know what you think. 140177384566, 3201181937706. As far as the down pipe goes i'm getting a bigger one, what did the hx40 come on, maybe i can get one from a junk yard. How do i put together a hybred and what parts do i need?

Its not so much the bigger size exhaust that you need, its the flange that attaches it to the turbo. Our stock one is a bolt on and the Hx40 uses a v-band, as do many others, and there are different size v-band flanges as well.
That housing might not be too bad. I couldn't get the second one to come up though.

Htt makes upgrades for your stock turbo to put the larger compressor wheel on it and housing to flow more air.

Yeah the second one didn't work for me either :shrug:

Is that housing really a 14cm because in the description its says, and I quote "12cm holset turbo exhaust housing off of 1996 dodge"

The hx40 didn't come on any dodge trucks that I'm aware of so chances of finding one in a junkyard are slim.

Click here for what you need to make a hybrid. No downpipe required. Using a stock 12cm exhaust housing you should be able to make a reliable 400hp w/ it.

How would an HX40 work with what i've got? I'm planning on buying a friends used smarty in a week or so. Also the turbo i found has just been rebuilt and he is asking $350.

It might work good, but I wouldn't do it. The hx40's are weak and have a bad reputation for snapping shafts. It would be about the right size but w/o a blow-off valve I personally wouldn't run it. But thats just my :2cents

What would you suggest? I really don't want to spend the money for a new turbo.

Well I don't either but you get what you pay for so I'm saving for a s300 variant. The hx40 will work for you. I was just saying that I'd rather spend the money then have a turbo come apart on me and then have to by a new one anyways :shrug:

Talk to sean, he knows turbos better then me

I know I'm the same way, it's not that I don't have the money or don't want to spend it but, the wife just doesn't understand. "Its a truck its not supposed to be able to go fast" The "better mileage" thing I was able to get a chip and nozzles from but, it's going to be hard to talk her into that one. Although everything I sell on ebay I'm allowed to use the money for parts on my truck.LOL
