replacing stock turbo

Hey guys I was just wondering if there are any bolt on turbos for my 2006 6.0. The stock turbo has too much lag for my liking. Also will my edge juice w/attitude work on an aftermarket turbo??? I was thinking about the Aurora 2000 but dont know what all is required. I use it for everyday driving and towing. Any ideas? Thanks, Doug

Ok so a modified stock turbo would probably be the easiest.... Does industrial injection sell the best one or is there another company that has a stock turbo with no lag? Also has anyone seen this... ::: DJ's Perfromance :: Fuel+ Intensifier :::

you're probably gonna want a custom tuned xcal2 for your aftermarket turbo. I've read of guys running the edge juice w/a2 with an aftermarket turbo and he found out he wasn't getting all he could out of his turbo. good luck to you.

Proper SCT tuning will help with the turbo lag more than changing the turbo, unless you're going bigger injectors also. You're probably not going to get the best performance without going SCT anyway, so give that a try first. You might be surprised.

you will never find one with ZERO lag, and if you do, it wont have any top end. there are sacrifices to be made, nothing is free.

the only way to really have best of both worlds, is to literally GET both worlds. compounds.

but lag doesnt have to be bad. if you get a modified turbo, make sure to get an SCT to program it. and if you buy it from somewhere other than elite, you will have enough money left over for the SCT ! !
