Turbo question

Got a 15 6.7 that’s been deleted and a 2nd gen swap done due to a VGT actuator malfunction. Don’t like the way it pulls with the 2nd gen swap. I have a buddy that just bought a 12 6.7 and he’s interested in my 2nd gen swap. My question is can I rob the actuator off his turbo for mine or can I swap out the whole turbo and make it work?

Is your turbo a good match for your mods and your usage? Has it been returned for that turbo? I'd try to fix what I have rather than taking a giant step backwards to a VGT again. Craig
