cool stuff, but I dont like the design.  the cummins / holset version is better than the powerstroke method.  Wonder what the insides look like

Power stroke style and meh there both problematic it is rebuildable looked likes it pulls apart with a few socket head cap screws and they say preformance not stock so sooty hot motors exceeding 1600 degrees I'd hope it would survive

I think I would rather stick to a Holset. I've changed too many Borg Warner turbos with oil seal failures on the cold side on the PowerJokes especially the 6.0. It's a pain to clean a CAC after a cold side oil seal failure.

If you do get one do us a favor and pull the plates apart so we can see the workings of the vanes.   I dont like the seperate vanes because there are  A LOT of moving parts.

Meh we will c I'm going to schied diesel extravaganza this year hopefully dps is there showing one off I would love to see one in person 

Tho then again a hx35 is a stout turbo been proven thousands of times and I had a modded hx now compare that to my sxe I won't buy another hx Borg Warner I'd a decent company also and I've seen all the vgt and vnt fail from semi holsets to powerstrokes ur going from something fixed to moving parts there I'd bound to be issues but no the less

Agreed.  I see stuck unison ring issues in the future of many of these units.  

@04Mach1, 6.0 trucks had Garrett turbos.  6.4 had the factory compounds from Borg. (which were still problematic)

Thanks for the correction. I forgot the 6.0 used Garrett.
