Turbine Wheel Question

While I have no personal data because i havnt driven my truck yet due to not having a rear axle in it but the more I read the more questions I have. I have a 68mm RCD Powermax with a BMW and the exhaust side is untouched. My worry is that it is not large enough to drive the compressor efficiently and I will have a hot smokey mess and wonder if the larger GT40 turbine would be a large improvement. If so... what would be involved in having it modified? What is the size difference? 4mm?...

Thanks!

Basically that's the mtw stage 4, the larger turbine wheel will help a lot with improving the efficiency of the turbo. Is it really worth it? Depends on how you use the turbo.

I use the truck as my dailey driver but sled pull pretty often. While I have my doubts that this will work but I will try to tow my other truck a couple times per month but northern Ohio is pretty flat which should help.

I have my Sterling almost band-aided back together so its driveable untill i get my Dana 80 all done so I should have some better idea on how it performs this weekend.

What sucks is I dont want to dump a huge amount of money into this thing because eventually I will need to replace it with something with a 2.5 inlet. I tried to buy a stock powermax compressor to have it machined but it is not available seperate.

I should give them a call.

Will my existing compressor wheel screw onto the GT40 turbine shaft?

Nate, whatever happened to that other turbo idea you were talking about? You were looking for people with stage 2 turbos.
