Borg Warner turbo?

Hey y'all I've recently been looking at some upgraded turbos for my 2004 6.0. I haven't really heard much about Borg Warner but the prices seem pretty good. If anybody has input on this please let me know. Thanks

Well... they are very competitively priced. But that also means you will be switching to a non-vgt turbo which usually means custom tuning, custom mounting, custom upipes or adapter flange.

There are pluses and minuses to each route. It all depends on the type of performance you are looking for

Mostly just fun red light racing on the street if another diesel pulls up, but I got a buddy with a dmax who wants to go to the tracks

I'd say go with a bigger vgt, it's an easy drop in turbo upgrade and you'll have great spool up on the street. Non vgts are also a good choice but you will generally have more lag.

Depends on how big you are planning to go and how much money you have?


How much money do you wanna spend?
Do you have all your bulletproof stuff done yet?
Head studs?
Monitor/gauges?
Tuner?


Do you plan on ever running bigger injectors?
Do you ever want to replace your tranny?
How often and how heavy do you tow?
