turbo interchange question

Will a turbo from an 06 fit on a late 04? If so, what are advantages or disadvantages? I have also heard that the 03 6.0 turbo is louder and has a little more boost. Anyone heard this?

Off topic- the front suspension on my 04 is noisy as hell like schweeky. Anyone have this issue?

Yes, the 06 will interchange with the 04 turbo. The advantage is that the journal bearings are a bit larger (more surface area) on the 06 than the 04. The disadvantage is that the 06 is a bit more quiet since it has 15 vanes on the exhaust side, while the 04 has 12 vanes and is a bit louder. It is true that the 03 turbos are the loudest (of the stock turbos) since they have 10 vanes on the exhaust side.

I have a coil spring front end since I have an 05 so I can't comment on your front suspension.

Funny cause some guys want loud turbos and some dont want to hear it at all. The Powermax tuned sounds awesome!! Personnaly I like the late 04 and up cause they are pretty quiet. The 03 turbo though will not really make more boost.

The 03 turbo will need an 03 pedestal if you want to get all the bolts in. It will bolt up to the front 2 bolts on the late model pedestal though.
