::Kc 68mm stage 3:: review

Ok everyone I'm posting a review for the Kc 68mm turbo. I have had this turbo on my truck for about 2 months and WOW. The lag is minimal, egts are controlled and cleans up 175/75s great. I got together with Charlie in mid September to get my hands on one of these bad boys and I'm glad I was able to be a tester for this turbo. There were a few issues BUT they had nothing to do with him. Even though the issues had nothing to do with Charlie, he helped me every step of the way to get them resolved and back on the road. Big props for that! I originally started with a stock turbo and stock injectors then went to a powermax turbo. That didn't fill my need for speed so I bumped up to warrens 175/75s and the Kc 68mm Vgt. I have yet to hit the track with this setup so numbers from me are yet to come. Here are the upgrades to the truck as of now. Studded, egr delete, sinister coolant kit, 4" dual exhaust, air dog fuel system,warren 175/75s, Kc stage 3 turbo, AFE stage 2 intake,TSD super panty dropper tune, auto meter gauges, dash boss, 4.5" RC lift, 20" rockstsrs on 33" nittos. With this setup, the truck has no problem lighting em up at 40-50mph. With all that being said, here are a few pictures and videos. ** DO KEEP IN MIND, NONE OF MY VIDEOS ARE WOT IN FEAR OF HURTING THE TRANSMISSION**







VIDEOS:
6.0 powerstroke w/ 175/75s kc 68mm vgt - YouTube
6.0 PSD 68mm turbo, stage 3 injectors. - YouTube

**only a 5psi boosted 4x4 launch**
6.0 powerstroke0-75mph run, 68mm, stage 2 injector - YouTube

To sum this review up, I love this turbo and recommend it to anyone wanting some serious power at a good price from a great guy. I have 0 complaints and couldn't be happier!
