I believe so. And I also heard that the 05 Duramax turbo is the same turbo as on the 05 Powerstrokes. Different name but the exact same look and everything.

BTW, Waylon, the turbo sounds GREAT and I just wanted to say thank you.

I'm sure with fabrication you can do it and with custom tuning... Ive seen a 6.0 PSD turbo on an OBS.

Yea buddy! I was surprised at the performance gain. I feel as if the truck is back to running like it did before I put the lift and tires on my truck. The turbo is a little more laggy but somehow both the bottom end and top end improved greatly. I also was able to gain 2-3lbs of boost and lowered my cruising EGTs by around 100 degrees.

I am so happy with the turbo and purchase. It only took me and two friends three hours to install and everything bolted on perfect and smoothly. Thanks again for the great product and communication!

Hijack over lol.
