Sorry guys, busy day. Why am I up at 3:30am? Wish I knew!
The 60FORDHY is very very very similar to the Elite VGT-SS. Yes it does have the Variable Geometry Turbine just like your truck has now, so the lowend will not be as laggy as a standard type turbo. You may have seen Ronnin's post the other night about his truck with the Elite VGT-SS and water/meth kit we sold him Dyno'n around 545hp I think it was. That was with stock injectors and fuel system. A good FASS system alone would give him even better results. Yes these will be a popular item.
The 60FORDEX is a remanufactured OE turbo that has been modified to fix the sticking vane issue.
Pat, tell Larry as soon as I get my account recredited from X'ing my order for a VGT SS i will call and pay for the VGT i spoke to larry about today. Thanks much for the great customer service! You guys are my first call from now on.
Well here is how the update goes on the turbo. Mines been on now for 2 months or so maybe more. No problems with it so far. Feels like to me that the stock 03 turbo I had, when not sticking, would constantly make a turbo whine at idle. With this turbo it cycles harder at idle and when it "Takes off" at idle it has more of a turbo whine. Everywhere I go and park with my truck running i seem to draw crowds asking what I have done to "that" thing. When driving truck with new charger you can ease the gas on and when it gets to the point when it "hits" as i call it, the aftermarket charger really feels stronger than the 58mm stock vgt did.
I did not have a chance to dyno my truck with stock charger but with the aftermarket HYPO Larry dynoed the truck at the meet and greet and layed down 469.8HP and 1025.9 Torque uncorrected, and corrected it was 462.3 and 1009.5. The numbers were great but not nearly as great as the Exhaust Gas # of 1203 MAX after 3 hard pulls. Thats telling you that you are moving some air there. If you have any other questions about this unit just PM me and you can call and ask. If i had to do it all over again id order another just like it.
so I guess on a stock 04 with a 03 engine , with only a intake and stright pipes , it would be a wise thing to do head studs before i ordered the upgraded turbo . I do not have a turner on my truck are a chip .
