    The emodels I remember were 435 hp. That’s your turbo, don’t know #s, but can’t be hard to find. Might want to check injectors and programming info, maybe even Cam? I don’t know. Maybe you already have everything. Just turned down.Need to run the #s by a Cat dealer, or expert on the forum here.Those are great engines.

    Put a 177148 Borgwarner on your E.
    Its rated at 425-550 if I'm not mistaken.

    It will work just fine at 425 rating.

    You can put any turbo on any motor, theyll just have different characteristics. You need to actually know about turbos to make good selections. Theres a lot to it.
