Default '11-14' Retro Fit or Upgrade?

Hi all. Searched some retro fits and upgrades from the past here but it's been kinda quite so thought to bring it up and see if any ones done anything lately that they're satisfied with. Not looking for a drag racer just want to replace/upgrade my '12 (I think I'm on borrowed time with it 212k lol) with something that's reliable. I have an old S****** file. If this is not a 'chatty' topic anymore, just pm me, thanks.

Stock 15+ turbo would be your best bet if you plan on leaving the hpfp alone

I've been happy with my stock 17' turbo and HPFP upgrade. Although now I think I would have tried the new cheetah turbo that's out there just for the hell of it.

Truck pulls awesome though and has plenty of power for a work truck.
Drags a 20 bale hay van like it was made for it.

BD just released a new drop in Turbo. It has larger wheels on it but unsure the blade count on the turbine. Might be a good option.

15+ OEM swap is a awesome upgrade!

So I can share info with others.



What is used for the tuning files?? Are they straight OEM files tweaked to use on 11-14 trucks?? Are they "custom" tweaked PCM/TCM files short of being full ****** files???


I tend to suggest to 11-14 people to go with the 2015+ hardware upgrade but rarely hear about that it takes on the tuning side.

Yes with Tyrant tuning which is who I run they fuel a little heavier down low to get the larger 15+ turbo to light off quicker. It’s not Smokey unless you flat foot it it’s just the way fueling works to keep it less “laggy” from what I understand.

Was wondering if I need to upgrade the HPFP? Your suggesting it's not needed? Probably a good idea to do. I think that's been upgraded too on the 2015's? Or maybe aftermarket HPFP puts out more fuel? Maybe someone can clarify that for me.

So farmboy you have a '17 turbo on your '13, if i read that correctly. Swap went ok? And what brand of HPFP did you install? I looked at that No Limit turbo. Looks pretty good too mind you it's pushin up to 45psi. Might have to worry about that on a stock set up?

2015+ hpfp flows more than the 11-14. The 15 turbo by itself on a 11-14 is fine but if your truck has some miles on it it wouldn’t be a bad idea to upgrade to the 15+ pump.
