Replacement Turbo

I am replacing the turbo, and am looking at the turbotecnics. Has anyone replaced the turbo in their 6.0? Has anyone had any luck with anything else?

If you're going to switch to a non-vgt replacement, the edge mod. in your signature will be worthless to you. You'll need a custom tuned SCT to make it work. Eric at Innovative is right in your back yard, I'd give him a call.

The TN kit comes w/ a bracket that holds the variable vane selanoid closed, That way the truck thinks it is still there, Then custom tunes tune the truck for a coventinal turbo instead of a VV. I would never go back to VV turbo's.

I have the exact turbo for sale on here that you need for a modded stock truck, or you could switch the exhaust housing for 190cc injectors. Look up under my sponsor forrums and you will see the thread. it is a ausome deal. I have never heard of any one doing a aroura 3000 on a sick o before. Probably would work good to.

O.K. so I have the new turbonetcis turbo installed and it runs alot better. But it seems to be holding back. Is this why I need to install the SCT. Is the Edge trash now? Can I do the SCT and tuning myself?
