2005 6.0 Turbo - Whats the best?

I've got a buddy who just lost his turbo on his 05 and was quoted $2500 to replace it with a stock one.Can anyone tell me if theres an aftermarket turbo that would be a better deal for him?He's all stock and not looking to mod for hp.

Thanks

$2500?!?! I hope he got a kiss with that quote...

Whoever said it was going to cost that just for a turbo replacement is trying to bend him over hard. Tell him to read up on the procedure and replace it himself. There are good used turbos all over the for sale sections from roughly $300-500. You can get a new reman stocker or a modified VGT direct bolt in replacement for $1000-1400. Even if it's your first time R & R'ing a 6.0 turbo you can do it in an afternoon.

Yeah thats what I thought.He hasn't had much luck with his 6.0.He's had injector issues,head gaskets and some other problem with his HPOP which ended up being big $$.Now its his turbo. My 03 6.0 has been good to me so far.Any idea of a particular brand or vendor that is better than the rest?
