See I used to have attachment issues with women, now I fugured out how to controll that... Diesel trucks
I love my truck, wouldn't trade it for the world.. Ok maybe a 6.7 KR dually.

Joking aside, a fellow 6.0 enthusiast/friend said "why not just buy a drop in VGT that would make the same ammount of power for 1/10 of the work."
My response: "Where is the fun in that."

A set of quick spooling compounds would be sweet, I just dont' see how you'll get the PCM on the 6.0 to do anything with the 6.4 turbos. Stand along controller looks like the only option.

For those who are interested, Jon here has started a long thread on PSA where he is getting a lot of response. Not that I want to direct anyone away from here, but for this project it's above most of our heads, and all the guys doing anything with 6.0's in the performance world are over there.

Looks like the temporary answer to controlling VGT will be a vac/boost actuated setup till I find an electrical answer. All of the 6.4 parts are on their way, some have arrived already. I'm starting to think I may need to get a 6.4 downpipe. Anyone have any thoughts on how that will work?

Couldn't hurt to get one to check out, they're cheap enough. I'm sure you can find a stocker somewhere if need be.

Well the turbo's arrived, parts missing damage to the turbine wheel of the VGT Turbo. I paid $500 for a turbo worth $100. I hate shmucks like this, I am going to continue with PayPal to see if I can work something out. I don't mind paying $100 for what I got but not $500.

Kurt, u bet ur I'll make it happen. At least I can start fabing my pedestal and up pipes now.

Update.......

The truck is currently not running since I blew the FICM 30 seconds before I was about to fire it up and take it for another test drive. I am still resolving some air/exhaust leaks. The last photo shows the new FICM mount location so I do not arc it against the battery again and blow another $550. Today I am going to fab a mount to hold a temporary actuator for the small turbo's VGT, the electronic version is still in development stages.








Test drive. At this point I had a massive oil leak from the drain tubes that desperately needed to be corrected.
