difference to van turbo

I know the superduty guys love the Van turbos because of the nonwastegated 1.15 housing.....but dont OBS trucks have that too?

whats the difference between a OBS turbo and a Van turbo then. i know guys were saying that the van turbos were 400hp capable and can run 35+ psi.

The difference is the same as the OBS and SD turbo. Different exhaust housing. Its the way it clamps on. They are definitely 400hp capable but they dont last long at those levels. Trust me I have one.
