updated turbo kit.

740659-0010

Is this the latest and gratest rebuild kit part number?
Im trying to go with the 360 kit.

***Upgraded Powerstroke Duramax 6.0 GT37 GT3782VA GT3788VA 360 Turbo Rebuild Kit | eBay

Is this the best kit to get?
Am I getting everything I need?

I am also going to get a unison ring and billet wheel.
VGT Turbo Unison Ring - Riffraff Diesel Performance
Riffraff Diesel Billet Compressor Wheel for Ford 6.0L 05-07

I hear that the rotormaster is the same as the wicked wheel
ROTOMASTER A1370511N BILLET Performance Compressor Wheel

Am I on the right track?
Thanks.

I fully rebuilt my turbo with parts from KC turbo. I have no regrets and a truck that runs great! I also upgraded to a billet wheel.

Order from Charlie / KC Turbo/ peixinho I was just looking at his sight last night and getting a rebuild list together for my 6.0 ( thanks to G8orFord )

and the SS unison ring is on that list along with the 360 rebuild I may do a 10 blade wheel also ??

Here are my biggest interests with my turbo that I want to improve.
1 reliability.
2 improve spool time.
Then with my mods I'm interested in, the turbo will also benefit with a bump in boost...

I feel that doing a stage 1 turbo upgrade will decrease spool time compared to a stock turbo with an upgraded billet wheel and 10 blade exhaust wheel.

Is this true?

Next question. KCturbo @peixinho Do you make your unison ring or does someone else make it?

Thanks.

Save yourself some time and get Charlie to

mail you out a stage 2 turbo. That baby will spool quickly and sing a sweet melody. I really, really like mine. Possibly the best mod yet, well maybe next to the ported intake, or the aww heck, just get the turbo.

We get it from a reputable source. We are not a "foundry/machine shop", we are a turbo shop

a bigger turbo will come with a little more lag. It is part of the game
