Default 6.7 Powerstroke turbo kit

We have found that the 6.7 powerstroke eats turbo's. So after replacing a few stock turbos just to see them blow up agine after a few thousand miles we decided to make a fix.


For those of you that haven't seen under the hood of a 6.7 powerstroke. This is what we started with.

Here's a pic of the manifolds, turbo pedistal, and turbo in.

This is the finished truck. Runs great. Still working on tuning to help spool it a little faster for the heavy haul type. Other than that its smoother, cleaner, and more powerfull than the stock set up.

That is COOL! I did not know that 6.7 Powerstrokes ate turbos. I am glad that you have found a fix for this problem.

So have you figured out why the 6.7s are so hard on turbos?

Its a number of things Tom. First the comp wheel is basicaly two wheels back to back which puts a lot of extra load on the fron bushing of the turbo with the shaft that far out in front of it. Second its just plane small. Small frame, small shaft, bad set up.

Wow, two wheels? Seems as though the engineering wasn't well thought out.

Strange looking compressor wheel! Well, at least compared to what I have seen..... I wonder if there should be a bearing on both sides of that wheel?

I have tuning to help spool it faster.
Nice looking kit real clean install.
How difficult is it to change the turbo once this kit is installed?
