Will the duramax compressor housing bolt on to a stock powerstroke turbo?

The way understand it since adrian or mtw has done this. You have to cut the backing plate of the compressor out and turn in like 190 degrees and weld it back in for it to line up right. Then it has to be perfectly flat or the wheel will rub. Shouldnt be to hard if your a machinist.

Yes the full duramax compressor housing will bolt to a powerstroke compressor housing. However, you will not be able to get the outlet on the compressor housing to line up to the same position of the powerstroke housing without extensive modification. What you can do though is what JJ at Dozer's Diesel does. He just gets it close by rotating to "roughly" where it should be and uses a longer silicone boost boot to connect the hot side CAC pipe to the turbo. I truely think you're better off buying a MTW Stage 1 that is 100% drop in for the little difference in money you're talking about.

I agree with windrunner the time and effort it would take to make the turbo work wouldnt be worth it compaired to buying a stage 1. Plus if you dont get the modifacations right then you will have to find another backing plate and after messing a couple of those up you probly could have bought a stage 1 and saved alot of time.

Hope you are as proud of your self as Dozers for stealing an idea if you do go this wrought. I think is kind of funny you would even openly ask how to duplicate Adrians work. I know he has moved past the durastroke but out of respect I don't think it should be replicated. Just my 2 cents.

I developed the durastroke and started MTW(mad turbo werks), As stated by windrunner408 Dozers is doing some what of a mod. You can do the mod that Dozer does with adding extra silicon tubing, that how I tested the turbo when I had the idea. But the silicon hose would pop off due to the misalignment, that's when I started clocking the backing plate and machining to get the right alignment. Then I moved on to the stage 1 I have now that is fully drop in, intake snout and all. Don't be offended about the comment of stealing, I have alot of guys that respect what I have done and the customer service I give, which I appreciate. I also don't have a problem with anyone doing the mod the way I did or with silicon hoses, I have since modded the turbine section to make the turbos run better than the orginal Durastroke. If you can find a duramax turbo for cheap I and would feel comfortable in working on your own turbo then do it. For info LLY is 63.5mm/88mm and the lbz is 62.7mm/88mm.

yeah, i will probably just buy a hybrid or stage 2 from you when the time comes. If it was a bolt on swap i might have tried it, but not looking to get into major surgery.
