VGT Conversion

1.) Has anyone heard of someone who did a VGT conversion with good results?

2.) Why are these conversion kits so expensive? What do the VGT kits consist of?

3.) Why do VGT's need a different mount than non-VGT single turbo replacements?

4.) Are there any non-VGT turbos that whistle louder than VGT turbos?

5.) Will the 2015 6.7L Powerstroke use a VGT or non-VGT turbo?

Why are you asking if people have done a VGT conversion? The stock turbo is a VGT.

Wouldn't count on that. Most likely a good bit of things will have to be changed.
