Turbo confusion??

So my turbo went out a few months ago and I went to Industrial injection and ordered what I thought was a stage one turbo. Well I have noticed lately my truck runs hotter and my fuel millage is way down. I called II and I read the serial number to the guy and he said that I had a garret stage one turbo.

Do you guys know if there is a difference in the turbos garret satge one compared to industrails stage one. They both use the garret turbo but the guy said I have the garret. I have also noticed that my truck is really laggy of the start now or if Im cruising and want to pass I have to wait for it to think before she decides she wants to go.

My truck is a 06 with exhaust and and extreme street tune by sct and the new turbo.

Thanks for the help
Randy

not sure if its relevant but look up vgt relearn, read a post a while back sounded similar to what problems your having after switching the turbo out, i think you have to disconnect both batterys turn your lights on and short the cables to each other, then i think turn your key on a few times or something then let it run idle for a little while, not sure exactly just look it up, could be worth a shot.

It depends on which turbo you got from them, they have atleast a dozen set ups..... Some designed for top-end power, others for low-end.

I went thru the relearn and as far as which turbo I am at a loss when I ordered it they said it was their stage one turbo, after screwing a around a little bit I called they said I have a garrett. so as of right now im at a loss for which turbo I have and it is pretty scary to know I put something on my truck and know nothing about it. I guess Ill have to call them and figure out what I have

You may have to get a new tune writen for that turbo. May also need bigger injectors. Same situation with me, but I have an 64mm turbo on stock injectors. I don't have enough exhaust pressure to light the turbo, so my EGTs are real hot.
