Well I’m thinking about doin a turbo swap. I would like to have around 400 450 hp. I will be purchasing a qaud v2 before too long. I’m thinking I will do injectors too. What size would you do with the HE351 and v2? And now for the turbo... do I want the variable geometry or the cw model? I would also like an exhaust brake which I believe is built into these turbos? Has anyone else done this swap? What was your experience? Anyone please chip in with questions comments or concerns. 

Mods should be in signature. Fass 150 is alsonin the books before long! 

 

And just to clarify the truck is running well now. No issues besides the fact it snowed 6 inches yesterday and I hit the ditch! Took out the neighbors mailbox with deer guard! :mad: Thanks guys!!

the cw doesnt have an eb, the ve does.  You need a standalone contoller for the ve to work.  

 

for 400 hp towing 7 x .010 for the cw alittle bigger for ve ask the exhaust side can control upper end fueling better.   

 

For you I would do a cw, I dont think the complexity of the ve install/controll  is a good thing for you.

Is the controller for the brake? What is involved in the controller?

Thought it was from a late 5.9? Boy flip I have much to learn before this becomes reality! Lol. So unless I do the ve and controller I will have to buy a aftermarket exhaust brake?

no a he351ve is on all 6.7 cummins.  Late 6.7 use a he300ve, but it is the same turbo with the same controller.  

 

 

Yes you will need an aftermarket EB.

Please check the articles section. As with a lot things there should be an article for both in the 2nd gen > engine > air & exhaust

call @dieselautopower

 

However I would guess if you can't piece it together yourself you are better off getting a drop in turbo.  the cost of buying a kit will likely get you really close to the cost of an sxe

If you dont build your own charge pipe, or go cheap wih a 45* bend to adapt the stock to work.  

 

Stainless diesel offers this http://www.stainlessdiesel.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=176  I used that for my VE swap.  DAP sells a silicon piece that you can use, 

 

Or you can build your own.

I’m not a pro fabricator so I’ll prob buy that one. What else do I need to know?

You will have to get a downpipe as well with the 351cw flange if you aren't going to weld one up like in the article.

Are you looking for a tow tune at 400-450 or a street tune at 400-450 and 350-375 for towing?

 

The reason I ask is the HE351CW is about a 350-375 rwhp turbo for towing at altitude and reasonable EGTs. 

 

The VE turbine wheel is larger and a common mod to the CW. It will spool better, reduce drive pressure, flow more, and sound better too :-)

 

My dad has the VE turbine wheel in his CW on his 06. I have him running about a 350-375 rwhp tune and it does awesome. It's efficient, cool running, and doesn't have EGT issues until WOT above 6-7K feet in the summer.
