Expect to see:
  • Increased airflow and enhanced EGT control
  • 100-200 degree decrease in EGTs
  • 5lbs increase in boost pressure versus the stock turbo
  • This turbo is very well suited for the everyday truck owner who wants or needs to replace his turbo for applications that are completely stock or very mild HP upgrades. We use this turbo often in the shop and find that it spools just as well as the stock turbo that comes out on the C15/3406E engines. I would recommend if you are using this turbo about 650hp is as hard as I like to push it for everyday use, that usually equates to about 42 to 43lbs of boost. Turbo life seems to be shortened if the turbo is pushed past this limit for everyday use. A good way to tell if you are exceeding the turbo's long term reliability is when you split a gear or change gears, if the turbo barks or back spools a large percentage of the time then you should upgrade to the 988-0001 turbo. The Borg warner turbos with the FMW are a extremely tough charger but barking the turbo on a consistent basis will cut down on its life extensively..
