I was going to do the industrial 6280 but I couldn't pass up the deal on the 61 mm turbonetics turbo I found on here.

instead of swapping to a superduty turbo id just go with a hypermax h2e. its a very reliable and upgradeable turbo.

You have to swap to all the stock SD mounting hardware and plumbing in order to run the turbo in question.

The GT38R is a decent turbo. It has surging problems if you try to run it to hard but in it's inteneded use it works fine. However you have to swap to all the stock SD stuff for this to work as well.

I'm with Luke. IMHO there is no point in swaping to the SD parts just to run a drop in SD turbo. If you are going to that expense and hassle you are better getting something that is actually a viable upgrade. The ONLY way I'd go with the SD retro anything is if I happened to have all the parts for it laying around or have them given to me. By the time you buy the upgraded Turbonetics or GT38R or what ever turbo AND buy the mounting parts you could have an H2E set up which is going to be better to begin with and a better platform to expand from.
