Thruster II review

Alright after two weeks having this on i thought i should probably write something on this thing. I notice my egt's are lower at 70 mph im about 700 deg boost is around 5-7 psi. Truck has more top end then before but takes longer to spool i need to tune the diverter valve abit first couple days in lock up around 70 mph truck was a dog every day seems like it gets better and better. It for sure needs some more fuel to get it lit ill be trying some injectors that are abit lower then 190s. I have some videos but no WOT runs yet but i got these for now.

Do you have a tune written for that turbo?

I have a 62/70. While I don't have a diverter valve, I don't think it should be making that howl. I could be wrong.

When you get the truck running I would like to also see a vid of a take off from stopped. I'm curious to see when you start building boost.

Been following you post, nice of you to share info. I have some questions for you that might help out. What's your boost numbers? if boost doesn't build all the way up then you are losing air. Something you can try is to wrap the pipe connections with a piece of aluminum foil sercure air tight at both ends take for run and see if aluminum foil popped, both hot and cold side. The howling actually sounds normal to me, had a turbo mustang that sound same, it whistled on way up on boost and when I let off it would howl. Almost sounded like I had my own cheering section, I got on car ran real hard then backed off of it and you would hear wooooooooooooo. Hope that helps out a little.

How do you like the BD Thruster II? My husband has a 2007 F250 and is thinking about putting this turbo on his truck. There is nothing wrong with his stock turbo but he came across one of the BD turbos cheap. What do you like about it and what is not to like? Thanks
