I have lurked here for a very long time and have done a lot of research, but I need some help.
My turbo just self destructed!
Pulled the intake and see no damage to the grid heater and no signs of significant chunks after pulling the grid heater, there is some very fine particles that appear to be aluminum that made it past the grid heater.
Truck is mostly stock: Mainly a Daily driver and I tow my rock crawler around a lot on a bumper pull flat bed (10k+)
- 115k miles
- Valair Clutch - 13.00" x 1.375" HD Organic Replacement
- DPP Cool Hose
- Stock fueling
- EGT and Boost Gauges
I know I need a new turbo and will likely replace the inter cooler as well. I hope that I do not need to pull the head?
I do not have a very good understanding of Turbo sizing, I have been reading a lot here trying to learn, but now I need to know asap. I don't completely understand the numbers, I am really counting on you all for help?
I can of course replace it with a stock unit, but why do that?
One recommendation I received was for a DAP Screaming eagle https://www.dieselautopower.com/dap-...ed-he351cw-4-4
I have also seen a few posted here
- HTT Towram 64
- HTT Proram 64
I live in Colorado, so it must pass emissions every year -- That may be a reason for a stock replacement?
Any recommendations? Think i will need custom tuning to go along with it? Hp Tuners?
Sorry for the long thread!
I greatly appreciate your help.
