HX 55 turbo info

i found one for 175 bux, anybody know what the specs are on it, and if it would be a good upgrade from my hy35...at least until i find a "nicer" turbo to go with? guy says its got a 67mm inducer..i dont think i could spool it
any help appreciated.

so unless you had a dedicated puller, i wouldnt run it. i wana say the hx55 is a 2.8 class charger (but dont hold me to it)

btw: my hx50 is a 67/78/22

that's a rather large turbo ya got there
but to the original question, i wouldnt even think about mounting it up....wayyyy to big for the fuel you have

the only worth while use is in a twins set using your stock turbo up to 500hp...which realistically isn't worth the hassle (and hp restriction)

are you still on the stock turbo? maybe you would be interested in using an he351...go up to 600hp in a twins set.

the he351 is the stock turbo from an 04.5-07 cummins. it's 60/60/9 so it spools quick, cools pretty well, but becomes restrictive with the 9cm housing on the top end. those are around $350 used.

if you want a single i'd say a 62 or 64 turbo of some variant. and HX40 6 blade is only 60mm and doesn't spool as good as the he351. they're sort of equivalent, but.. not really. plus those hx40 shafts are too weak.

if you wanted to get creative with a single turbo, custom build an he451ve VGT setup..would be badass!

yea a vgt would be really really unique...i dont know of anyone on a 24v. i think that an he351 would be a good step up for cheap, except that 9cm housing would be restrictive in the top end your right...how big is the he451?
