BB 6.0 stock replace

Has anyone heard good or bad things with the stock Gerrett Ball Bearing turbo for the 6.0?

Mine is leaving oil out he tail pipe and just want to see if I want to make my self afford the upgrade or go stock or a gently used one. My repair bill is getting much larger then wanted.

What Garrett ball bearing are you talking about ? Garrett doesnt have a replacement one for the 6.0 expect the Powermax GT3788V Turbo, the ring is probably damage on your turbo have them tear the turbo apart clean it and put it back together.

x2 on the GT3788V... havent heard anything but good about that one.. seems to be a great stock replacement and it'll also clean up some bigger sticks...

Yes, it is a direct bolt in. We just sold our last 2 we had in stock. As far as I know, these are now on national back order.
