Turbo replacment, which one to buy??

Recommended Posts

Yestarday, I pulled the boot of the CAC Tube and found "OIL" in the boot next to the CAC inlet. OEM turbo ex-change cost close to the price of new Aftermarket turbo. have narrowed it down to 3 choices, Switzer S300G, BD Super B kit or ATS Auroa 3000 kit. BD & ATS come's complete with downpipe and everything needed & is represented to be a "direct replacment fit", I am leaning toward ATS because of the 3yr. 150,000mile Warranty.. WHAT DO YOU GUY'S THINK WOULD BE THE BETTER CHOICE BASED ON MY MOD'S LISTED BELOW??? AN ONE RUNNING ONE OF THESE???

Just because you found oil in the CAC doesn't mean a bad turbo. As I posted in your other repeat thread. http://forum.mopar1973man.com/showthread.php/1684-Help-!-Oil-in-air-inlet-tube?p=11791&highlight=#post11791 On the other hand I ran the BD super B and it was ok as an upgrade and with your 40 hp injectors I think would be a good match. I ran 90 hp injectors with mine and that was a bit much fuel for the little B as It would get hot egt's fast, 40-60 hp would be a good match. Where are you getting prices because oem replacements can be had for around 500 bucks as BD and ATS kits start around 1100-1200 and up.

Sorry WF... I should have explained, My Stock turbo is a HY35 w/9cm Ex. Housing which is why i can't stay in the throttle very long or turn the edge past #1",high EGT'S...My housing mounts w/ a V-clamp instead of bolts so i cant upgrade the rear housing. every place i have tried to exchange for a HX35 (has 12cm exh. housing) is around $900.00 to a 1000.00 because i am not trading in the same core.
