New turbo

Recommended Posts

Hey guys am getting a new turbo :hyper: I am planning on getting the phat shaft 62 but I am worried about the installation . How hard is it to get it on there ? Am confused on the exhaust part , since I have understood that I need a hx40 down pipe . So my question is how would I install it having the banks monster exhaust and the Banks power elbow on it ? Please if any body has any ideas and recomendations they would be very much appreciated .

If you want to use the banks elbow and exhaust you will need to get a different turbo, one that uses the OEM exhaust style, but the HX40 style downpipe is a very high flowing setup.

AH64ID .. No way to adapt it ? cummins .... just measure everything as best you can ......I was out 0.5 inch short after I got my hx40 downpipe in .... and do you think that thing comes back out easy - hello :( ....... missing skin and blood later I managed to join another bit of pipe to it --- and then I was 0.5 to long ..... repeat again :banghead:

You can always adapt, but there is a matter for $$ and room. The HX40 style downpipe uses a v-band clamp, where the OEM uses a bolt on flange. The HX40 doesn't need the high flow elbow becuase it's 4" from the turbine flange. The easiest way to do it differently would be a turbine housing, but again $$.. if it's even available. If your dead set on the OE style elbow/exhaust then look into a different turbo..Personally I like the Garrett Power Max Stage 2's as a similar setup to a PS 62.
