My truck needs a new turbo, the truck has a FASS 30 over cp3 60hp injectors ATS 2 piece Manifold and used to have a AFE BladeRunner GT
The two me and my shop have narrowed down to are the industrial injection 64 phat shaft and the BD super bee 66/71/14 or the super bee speical 67/71/14
I tow about once a month and it’s about 11k
Any recommendations or personal experience with either?

I personally wouldn't go with any of those turbos. An SXE 62/68/12 will be a better choice. It will flow more air then stock for more power (tuning will play a major role) and spool fast like the stock turbo.

If you really want bigger you can go with the sxe 64 or even the 67. Bigger than that and I would think there would be way too much lag. But definitely an sxe fan here.

i used to have a writeup that was a good motivator for going with the 64mm htt stage 2 he351. it mentioned an easy way to 550ish hp with a similar setup in to whats in my signature. love this setup, with my hpt tuning spool is better than stock.

with whatever turbo you go with, take the time to wrap or blanket the exhaust manifold and then blanket the turbo.

The situation I’m in is the shop that screwed the turbo up gave me the 2 options, I’m leaning towards the phat shaft 64.
but will it lag too much?

I doubt it would at all... but still, get blankets for the exh mani & turbo, it will definitely help spool. they are easy to install after the turbo is installed.

The blankets will hold the heat in the manifold and turbine housing which makes the turbo spool a little faster.

I'd tell the shop you want an SXE or they can give you the money that a phat shaft 64 would cost.

The shop is going to buy what ever turbo I say. in theory wouldn’t the blankets raise EGTS? It can build more boost but when I tow I’ll have higher egts

it doesn't make the turbo build more boost, it helps with how fast it spools. It increases efficiency. Your EGTs won't go up.

It doesn’t restrict flow or create more heat. It maintains the heat better by not letting it escape as fast.

All I’m saying is when you insulate something you retain heat wouldn’t the same principle apply as the he won’t disperse as easily therefor higher egts?

If you added a restriction, then your eggs would rise. All you will change is instead of getting to a lower temp on the exhaust housing, it’ll travel down the dp before it cools that amount. The air coming out of the manifold is still the same temperature. If you don’t back it up and it moves at the same speed or faster, your egts won’t rise.

This makes sense and will get a turbo blanket and cover the exhaust Manfold?

I spoke with a number of shops in my area and they all said the stealth 64 was not worth the money. I decided to go with a phat shaft 64 from industrial injection and I’ll let you know how it goes

Little up date here
The 64 spools really fast and stays pegged at 45 psi. It seems great but have to get some tune changes we shall see what that does
