some on here have holsets, Others, myself included have ***'s. haven't heard of a ford 6.0 on it. One should keep boost below 15. Or you get the grenade factor.

you will be better off with the ***, the hx-40 is a turbo that should have extensive mods done to the engine.... the ******* Turbo is a direct bolt on.... you would have to ask some one with the *** if it whistles as good...

Not real familiar with the K&N intake but the S&G is about the best one out there for the 6.5TD.

I've got the gm-8 def not the best turbo in my opinion, if you can mod things the hx35 will work on the truck, for a bolt on application the ******* i have heard nothing but good things on, and i plan to get one.

If you can afford it. Get the chip for the ***. You will really be happy. The problem with the stock tune and the ***, is you run out of fuel before you run out of air.
Both Heath and Walking J have tunes for the ***
But you will see an improvement with the stock tune and ***. Because of more air volume and less exhaust back pressure, intake air temps are cooler with the *** and the PCM wont defuel like it does with the GMX turbos.

I have searched the net and can't find a website. Anyone have any ideas of where to find more information. How does the *** compare to the HX35 or HY35? I have also seen people use the HE241 but don't know how the HXs compare to the HEs.

Thanks

Rich

I just checked Walking Js website and he no longer has The ******** Or KOJO Tune listed, so I don't know where you can get them from
