there are several people i know around here saying that putting a turbo of a 2005 is bigger and will give more power to my truck then my stock turbo. is there that much of a difference between the 2??

They say there is a benefit, how much, I do not know. And I am unsure of what they are doing with the wastegate (manual vs electronic)

People have said 50hp on top. 60/60/9 vs 54/58/9. Drill and tap a hole for the elbow to the wg and just leave the solenoid in. Otherwise ats sells a plug to go in place of it.

the '05 turbo had a 2mm bigger compressor wheel.
it is capable of higher boost before it goes out of its efficiency range. for a mildly modded truck you will see an advantage but high hp still needs a bigger turbo.
