    I know this question has been asked 100x, but there seems to be a lot of variables on what can work, and what works best. As the title states, I am looking for the best upgraded turbo for my 6TS with 58 injectors, 6999 codes and as of now it is tuned with a 601 file. Thanks in advance.

    The borg with 1.45 housing works nice for me, don't remember the part number off hand.

    Rubber duck That’s what I’ve been searching for myself being that it’s housing is the same as the PDI stage 1. I’m not looking to make crazy horsepower numbers, just looking for 650-750hp, while trying to improve my MPG. I’m in no rush to get this turbo being that my stock one is fine. If at all you get the chance to dig up a part number please let me know so I can start pricing it. Thanks!

    If you were running 57s and a 601 file I'd say just use the 1496-988-0000. But those 58s are going to push that charger perty hard. The 1.48 housing will slow it down and flow more.

    If that’s a non wastegated housing, does that mean it’s going to smoke more?

    Rubber duck kw: then it must be a properly sized turbo with the right programming?

    if this factory cat turbo for our 3406e craps out someday, then order one like you have? Truck is still at 475 hp but that could change once I get in the engine and overhaul it.
