My Turbo has reached it's end-of-life. --> What are my options?


Recommended Posts

I knew this day would come.

 

I checked this morning after a seeming fail on my way home last night, according to my guage.

 

Bearing radial clearance test failed.

 

I don't have a tuner in my truck at this point.  I will likley put one in later.  I was trying to address any and all actual harware issues first to get everything working as best as possible.


It looks like @Mopar1973Man is happy with his HX35/40 Hybrid (60/60/12). Would it make sense for me to put one of these in my truck based on the assummption that I will eventually put a tuner in the truck. 

Is that a bolt in solution or is there some fancy footwork that would have to be done?

 

 Or should I go stock?  Or.....? Any other suggestions are welcome.

 

My goal is reliability and best possible  gas mileage.

 

I don't care about going fast but do have a resident 1800# camper living on my truck full time and I do some towing here and there.

 

I do drive up and down very steep mountain roads frequetly.

 

I also do a lot of long distance highway driving, with a bit of offroading as well.

Give DAP a call they have rebuilt kits for turbos. Once rebuilt it will be all new again.

 

You could upgrade to 62/68/12 they have them as well DAP for a good price. Works with factory exhaust brake too.

Lenny at DAP suggested the S200GX-E DODGE RAM UPGRADE TURBO for my application.  Not over done but an upgrade to the stock and a good fit with my Bosch RV 275 Injectors.

Lenny said this was a easy swap no mods or interface issues.  Just a bunch of baked, rusty fasteners to be worried about.  He said my exhaust brake would bolt right back on to it.

 

What do you think?

@Mopar1973Man

 

Any thoungs?

I have a Banks Exhaust brake so hopefully that would fit with it?

 

 

 

How does your exhaust brake mount? I assume it is a direct turbo mount. If it is like this one, you will need the stock type turbo with the 5 bolt exhaust flange.

 

This one should work in aftermarket.

Or a rebuild kit for your your stock turbo.

Thank you for the info!!!

 

Yes my exhaust brake mounts directly to the turbo.  The Turbo Lenny recommended has that flange on it.  He said that would be the most approriate turbo for my injectors, exhasut brake set up and overall application.

 

You are recommending the same on that Lenny sugguested fits well with my injectors etc:

That's a good sign.

 

I love my exahust brake.  It's way too much fun!

 

Some shop stole the label off of it.

The s200 gxe would be what I would do now days.  wick fast spool and supports 400 hp.  

Glad to hear this from you!!!!

 

Now to slather all the fasteners with CLP.  That stuff is magical!!!!

 

I had a hynge on an old comm shelter I have that was so loud the entire zip code could her it every time I opened and closed that door.  It was like a Halloween Sound Effect.  I tried every penetrating oil known to mankind first with marginal improvements.  Then someone told me about CLP, so I tried that as well.  Thanks to CLP those hynges are silent and totally free swinging.  Hopefully that helps me out with this project as well.

I got one of these HE351W, you have to clock the compressor housing and I had to modify the waste gate bracket.
