You guys have any info on this turbo? My buddy just brought one over today. It's brand new, never installed. Can a turbo like this be installed on a Dmax?

I dont know if it would flow enough air for a Dmax...its a Cummins turbo designed for 5.9 liters IIRC.

You'd need a special pedestal to mount the turbo too.

The HX-40 has a 60mm wheel good until 40 psi but has a smaller shaft that will snap if you bark it much. Its good to about 450 to 525 hp on a dodge. You could put it on a Dmax if you had the pedestal from ATS or BD

Yes, the stock IHI on the LB7 is very similar in flow to a HX40.

Compressor flow is similar but the turbine side is a bit bigger in the HX40. It will handle higher PR ratios then the IHI too.

Id use a different (stronger)turbo,the HX40 was originally used on the 8.3 Liter C sereis Cummins. It wasnt ever put on a 5.9 from the factory.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the S300G turbo a "stronger" alternative to the HX-40? The S-300 is what the BD Supermax is based off of I believe.

This is what I have been told as well.

So it was mentioned that a turbo could be made to fit on our trucks IF a pedastal from ATS or BD were used.

Question is, does ATS or BD sell just their pedestal? If so, at what cost?

Christian Roth of BD posted that they were not selling just the pedestal at this time.
