i have heard of a "hybrid kit" for the hx35 which gives you a fast spool time of the 35 but will handle more boost like the hx 40 i told this to our local diesel guy and nobody at the shop had ever heard of it and we r talking like 10 good ol boys who have been through a diesel once or twice if you no what i mean. so is there such a thing as an hx 35 hybrid kit

I had the six blade. Loved that turbo. I had a 14cm housing, and it spooled like crazy and did 42psi.

Louder, but not a cool when it's slowing down. On the 35, after it was back to 0psi, the whistle would rapidly change pitches and it was cool sounding. Didn't do that anymore.

I don't want to hijack but I have been trying to get some info on a bigger exhaust housing on a hybrid for a while now. Anyone have any experience with a 16 or 18.5? How was the spool? Thanks.

I remember reading in an old tdr that the 18 really wont help that much but the 16 will give you fair spool up and lower egts

What exactly has to be machined onthe stock housing? Does that mean the whole turbo has to come off the truck to do? And is there a benefit to the 8 blade over the 6 blade? The 8 blade is out of stock

yes the turbo has to come off. it has to be machined so the hx40 wheel will fit but i think you can do it your self. i wish someone would post pics of the part that needs machined.

For 250 bux it seems a very worth while mod and hell of a lot cheaper than a new turbo

And any pics of what gets modded on the turbo would be great I think this would be a great compliment to the 100 hp inj I have and will soon be installing

i got the 35/40 and it works just like the cats meow.its tame and builds all the boost i need
now if i could only get the fuel thing sorted out.....
those guys at the diesel shop are R&R guys apparently cause it is a turbo that was never a production piece
be sure you get it balanced
