DIY Brute 66?

Does anyone know if I can get a turbo intake housing that's ready to accept a 66mm billet wheel for the 38r?

Or is the stock shaft to small to use a bigger wheel?

I would think that the Van turbo's 1.15 exhaust housing would mate really well to this mod, if the pieces exist and are affordable.

Would this not be the same or very similar to a Brute 66?

I am interested in this too. Would make a lot more sense to do this than spend $1300+ on a similar turbo.

They have a forum going right now and I just talked to the guy that does this kit. The thread is about doing it with e99 and obs trucks but he offers it for all of them.

Anyone interested in a DYI Billet 66mm OBS-E99 Kit - PowerStrokeArmy

i think most companies havent done this because they want to make more money off of you.

Barder that's doing that setup is an awesome company.

To make the van turbine housing work, do you not need a bigger turbine as well? I think there was just a thread on this

I already have a van turbo in my truck.

I think I'll give Barder a call when I'm back in town.
$700 is more than I'm interested in spending right now, but I'll probably go that route when the time comes

I have a billet wheel already, and it helped tremendously. But I'm willing to bet that with the 175/80 injectors I have, a 66mm wheel would be a big improvement.

I just got a price from Barder.

Machining of the housings
Billet wheel
non-EBP pedestal
Van turbo adapter
seals/gaskets

$750

I might just try the WWII I have in the stock van compressor side.

I don't need the non-ebpv pedestal or the adapter.
If all I'm doing is a housing swap I don't see why I'd need the seals either.

All I need is the wheel, which we all know is $200 or so. So what will they charge just to machine the housing is the real question.
As long as a 38r wheel threads on to a stock shaft, we should be good to go
