I'm assuming it started smoking pretty bad?

So far have put 5000 miles across the turbo so far towing all over Arizona and even a run from New Mexico up to Fresno, Cali. Once we get down to the dyno for testing we will do a more official update post.

So far it seems to have a good amount of mid-top end pulling power. It basically seems to be a 200 rpm difference needed and maybe some tuning tweaks since we dialed them in for the smaller turbo on lockup shifts to keep the turbo happy. All in all basically its forcing the truck to drive 70mph instead of 65mph, which just don't care to honestly due during towing. I think its a good weekend warrior play setup for light- medium towing but not ideally the best for heavy hauling (which 95% of people aren't)

I personally like bigger turbos and think the tuner can just add a little extra fuel to compensate.

I think it is important to point out that those tuning tweaks are needed because it snuffs out the turbo when the converter locks, and you need to work a little more to keep the rpms up.


So... top end power increased, egts cooler at WOT on a race tune... but at a sacrifice for a little low end. Which is what is to be expected, just didn't want people thinking it is better in every way.

Jame is a big fan of turbos... but most of our "customer issues" come from being locked in OD at lower rpms struggling to tow.... which the BASB turbo does better at for sure. Just thought that was important to point out.


I still theorize that the s364.5 with big turbine or the s366 is gonna be the best of both worlds between towing, low rpms, and top end power.

I think if you want better in every way you need to stick with the 64.5 and smaller chargers. 66mm and up you will be sacrificing bottom end. Big tires , tall gears and a manual trans all amplifie those symptoms.

AMEN!

I hate getting the calls from guys with stick shift, 160/100s, 40" tires, stock gears, lifted, dp tuner, and wanting a smoke free setup that tows great and runs cool in all areas of the rpm range.

And a KC drop in is the answer...right?!

I tell you one thing. I wish KC had these s300 based Garrett drop ins when I was doing my truck. Would of made life way easier and cheaper.!

The sad part is that a bone stock 7.3 with factory tuning wont even accomplish that. Especially an obs..

it's scary to watch a pyro on a stock setup while towing...
