What Turbo To Buy

Hey guys ive asked this before what turbo should I get I was gonna do a dominator 66 but I want a bearing or a ball bearing turbo I was looking at the turbonetics one and the garette one I heard a guy on this other forum had a garette turbo he said it was a POS it leaked oil real bad and surges real bad he sent it to garette and they told him to F off on that so he got a turbonetics bearing turbo and he loves it he said its alittle laggy spooling but wants it spools it hits good 0 surging and its less money with a 1 year no hassel warn so I think im gonna go with that one I have a early 99 so im gonna just change all the piping out and the x pipe and breathers and ypipe with the upipes o and the pedistal F it lol im gonna tear it apart anyways so why not do the bad A$$ turbo from the start.

Don't base your decision on one guy's very biased opinion of the product. Do some product research and talk to those who have them.

Wes,

That is ONE guy who had that issue that speaks his mind very regularly about this exact subject. If u have seen some of his rants and blow ups on some of the other forums u would see why garrett probably didnt help him. anyway, talk to David Lott at Diesel innovations about the turbos. DO NOT and i say again DO NOT go by what my signature and my avatar says as far it being my opinion, i have those there as a joke. TN is a good company, i will not deny that But the fact of the matter is, the Garrett BB will more than likely make u a happy PSD owner. There are a coupl guys on here and at PSN that just put the 38R on their trucks and are EXTREMELY happy with the outcome. This type of subject can get very ugly. If that warranty from TN makes u feel warm inside, then go for it, but the Garrett is just as good if not a better turbo than TN.

You are basing your decision on one guy Joe(CSIPSD), that is the only short fall I see about your decision. There are more GT38R turbos out there in the field than all the other brands of aftermarket turbos combined. That is a fact, like it or not. Some swear by then and some hate them. If you ask around about the leaking thing, there are only a couple. I have read about a few TN BB that had problems as well and missing parts from the factory to boot. So what! Run what you feel is best but get more than one persons openion, that is just short sided and un-informed. Rant over......



Post up how you like it when done. It will be fun so take your time and do it right.

Very well said Strokin! I dont nunderstand why people jump to making a decision because one person comes on and bashes a turbo like Joe does. A few people went with what he said, bought the TN and were disappointed with it. but they werent TN BB turbos either, and even before the TN BB came out, Joe would say the TN journal bearing was a better turbo. Well, some guys found out the hard way and didnt like it, sold it, and bought a Garrett BB and havent looked back.

Wes, do some research before u make a decision on this. Call DAVID LOTT!!!

all we are saying is just give him a call, he is a straight forward guy. check his website. DI Performance - Your Powerstroke, Duramax, Cummins Performance Headquarters. U have to look at all your options, not just the options of ONE site. I saw the site i am sure u were looking at and the price was almost $200 more for the Garrett. u can get a garrett cheaper than that. elite Diesel also sells the garrett, check with them,. Talk with them with ALL of your concerns about the turbo. They will let u know. Elite and David Lott.

P.S If u could get to my house i would buy the turbo from u if u had problems with it!! LOL, u wouldnt have to throw it thru my window, let alone wouldnt be able to get to my front window! LOL
