Banks quick spooling turbo

Has anyone done the banks quick spooling turbo upgrade? Any pros and cons? Is it worth it?

I have it but it came with the truck. The whole kit is around $900. If your willing to drop that kind of cash I would upgrade to the 38r or do a 1.0 exhaust housing and a billet wheel from riff raff for around $350.

I think you are buying a name and there are far better/cost effective options out there... and FWIW I'm pretty sure its actually a larger housing than the stock which would make it spool slower and run cooler.

Stock housing is .89 or .84. I can't remember right now and the banks is a 1.0 housing. You can buy the same housing from other brands for $150 compared to $450 for the banks. Are you just trying to get better performance?

So you have a obs. Your exhaust housing is 1.15 so going with a smaller housing will help you spool up faster.

So going with a smaller housing will increase performance but will cause higher egt's. I would definitely do a billet wheel from riff Raff for around $200. It will give you a performance boost and help with turbo surge. What are your egt's?
