The Last of the Factory Turbos

Hi,

As some may know we had a couple of issues with two factory turbos so we found and ordered a new turbo

We ordered the turbo overnight on Monday, February 26th and it shipped. On Wednesday DHL "confirmed" they did not have the turbo in their possession. On Thursday they found it in Washington state. Friday, March 2nd it was in Utah. Monday, March 5th if was in Atlanta and the following day in Wilmington, Ohio. DJ says that turbo has more miles than him but somehow I don't believe it :whistle:

Here is the one pass we took on the 2nd stock turbo.

Video - We took this video sometime around the end of February on our street. DJ had just installed the second stock turbo. It was the first and only pass. He's fitting in a new turbo. We'll post as soon as we can make a pass.

We did finally receive the turbo on Thursday afternoon and DJ is working on fitting it in right. We hope to have more videos soon.

Thanks,
Vivian

Thanks Kurt.

We are shooting to attend a race in Creswell, North Carolina on March 24th but don't know if we're going to make it. We ordered a bend that we need to connect to the turbo, which we should receive tomorrow. Then to the dyno to tweak away. That is what we think may take a little time being that it's not a vgt turbo.

After that we have plans to go to Moroso in West Palm Beach the 28th and 29th of April and then to the TS Performance race in Bowling Green, Kentucky, May 12th.

Hope to be able to meet you and personally tune your truck.

Thanks,
Vivian
