V-8 Turbo Up-Grade


Recommended Posts

Looks like it's time to replace my turbo on my V-8 Superliner. I have the pump turned up and now I want to put a bigger turbo on it. Does anyone know what to put on it as far as size, make , and where to get it? I run the truck every day so I don't want to get too carried away, something that will live on the street. Maybe one step up from stock.

WE GOT A GOOD PUMP AND TURBO PLACE UP HERE NEAR BUFFALO, D+W DIESEL AND ELECTRIC 716(681-7860) MIGHT BE A GOOD PLACE TO TRY. HOW DID YOU MAKE OUT WITH YOUR CAM REPLACEMENT.

Try IB diesel in pennsylvania . They have done a few of them for guys I know and do an excellent job .Or try Michigan turbo I have personally had very good luck with them and they are very knowlegeable. Good luck when you get a good one let me know cause I would like to buy one myself!!

Thanks for all the tips.

GreenGiant2- I got the cam reground, resurfaced 11 lifters and bought 1 new. I put everything back together a few weeks ago, what a messy job. I think if I do it again, I will roll the truck on it's side so I can work on it from the sides instead of going under the dripping motor. LOL Total cost was around $600.00 for everything. Better than $2,100.00 just for a new cam and lifters!!!!!!!!!! Trucks runs good.
