What have you guys done and what is best? I know I need a new adapter from beans diesel but is there anything else special I need to do the swap? Also where is the best place to get rebuild kit and non-ebpv pedistal if I need it?
As far as the compressor wheel, compare your stock turbo to the E-Series turbo. Your stock turbo should have a design where there's a long vane, short vane, long vane, etc. If your turbo vanes from the van are the same design, like the WW, you won't need to use your WW. If they're the same as the stock turbo's, then you'll need to install the WW.
