Turbo Options...

Ok, I think the turbo in my truck is slowly dieing So Im looking at turbo options here...

I would like to swap over to a SD style because of the extra turbo options... but, do I really need to do all that extra work? I would like to have bellowed up pipes, and I know my up pipes are leaking

I dont race my truck, I DD it, and tow with it, i mean sure its nice to have a fast truck, but thats not what its meant to be in my case. Im going to do Stage 1's at one point, and add an intercooler i hope.

So, what would be the ideal choice for me? Swap over to a SD style, and get like an Aurora 3000, or get a D66 like Matt has? or something different?

Thanks Matt. It'll be some time before I do end up doing it. But I want a plan of attack.

I think the turbo is dieing... Its not making as much boost as it used to, but it could be attributed to leaky up-pipes... However, its STARTING to leak oil between the intake/exhaust sides. So its only a matter of time.

But I need that too, an intercooler, my EGT's are stupid high.
