Elite turbos Vs Industrial Injection turbos.

First off I dont want to stir up a bif pot of trouble. I googled Elite Vs Industrial Injection and all I found was a 4 pages of nothing over at PSN.com. Besides the Tow Powers having a 59mm inducer on the High- Pressure Turbo vs the Phat Shafts 58mm inducer what is the difference? I am looking to upgrade soon and would like to know if the Elite setup is worth the extra cash.

Elite's setup is the way to go. It has a Precision billet wheel in the low pressure turbo. You can also upgrade the turbo's to double billet. Billet low pressure and high pressure.

I doubt there are any direct comparison numbers out there...have you seen any in terms of performance?

I imagine that the 6 blade wheel that Elite offers from Precision outflows the 7 blade k31 wheel that Industrial provides. No data to back that up though. Just an assumption based off of the incredible reputation Precision has in the industry, especially in the sled pulling community.

The industrial Injection setup has a billet 71mm wheel? Does anyone out there have any real world numbers. What does a stock truck make with Tow Powers? What does one make with the Phat Shaft setup? Is there any reliability issues with either? I know it's only $600 difference but that $600 could pay for the head studs and egr delete I will be doing while I am in there and have the cab off.

I personally don't have any dyno numbers to offer you, but I would also recommend the Elite setup. I have done LOTS of lurking and reading on power stroke Army, and Elite definitely seems to be the way to go. There is a wealth of knowledge on that site from big performance guru's that have plenty of dyno numbers and real world experience. I love power stroke.org and I have learned a ton from this site, but stalking on power stroke army has proven very beneficial when it comes to more serious mods. It does not appear to be the place for Newbies lol

Yes, the Industrial setup uses a billet k31 wheel. It's a 7 blade design. The 6 blade Precision wheel is supposed to be more efficient and flow more. My truck made 641 fuel only with the Elite Tow Power atmosphere (the big turbo). I still have the stock high pressure. That's basically stock fuel too. Another truck just backed that up, making 642 on 37" tires and bone stock fuel. Don't know of any Industrial numbers on stock fuel.

Does the 71mm turbo spool ok with stock fuel? Would it work ok on a lower tune (like for towing)?

I've seen no issues with spool up. I love it. Boost comes on quicker in my opinion.
