1.0 turbo housing?

I thought I read something about a 1.0 turbo housing. Does this use the stock wheel and internal parts? What exactly is the difference between stock and this housing, and what are the benefits?

Factory turbo housings are around 1.15:1 air ratio, they make a 1.0 and .85 housings also. They are just smaller housings that allow the turbo to spool up faster at lower RPM's however you will loose a lil top end power. If you tow alot this might be a good option as long as your not gonna race the thing.

Basicly your just replacing the exhaust housing with a smaller one.

I had a 1.0 housing on mine before I did my injectors. It made a good improvement when towing and made the turbo spool a couple hundred RPM earlier. If it were not for the injector upgrade, I would still be running it. If you decide to swap it, check out this link. It will help a lot. OBS turbo removal/installation tips

The 1.0 housing is a little smaller than the original factory 1.15 housing. This means the same amount of exhaust gas will move at a higher speed through the smaller housing and moving more intake air into the engine at a lower rpm. This increases torque at a lower rpm and the turbo spins up faster. Good for RV use because of the low-midrange power increase. The power dropoff at the top end is minimal. I got 408 hp/14.5 quarter times using a 1.0 housing and stage II injectors and had over 80K miles on the turbo/;housing.
