I sold mine and went with a second gen swap. for the money you will be spending on just a turbo you can second gen swap and put an inline exhaust brake

I agree 100% unless you live in a state with visual inspections. That's where the Fleece shines, and is really when they are worth it. That or if you purchase a compound turbo kit that runs off a stocker and you want some more, and don't want to change your entire set up or mess with the piping.

Can this fleece be swapped as simply as y'all are making it sound? Would your truck require any tuning to run the different set up?

I've also been eye-balling the BD super-B special. It comes with the turbo, manifold and inline brake. My question does this break spice into the existing EB switch or is this a separate plunger style valve? I have a G-56 so if thats the case I'd most likely mount an inline on the stick.

The swap is as simple as removing your stock turbo and replacing it with the Cheetah. Keep in mind they are both essentially HE351VE's. Yes its ideal that you tune your truck for optimal results.

I'm already running custom tunes so its not that hard for the builder to pull up my file and do some tweaking for the Cheetah.
