Well, Dad got another first gen, 5 speed, 90,000 miles, but rough miles.. I had to go over a mountain pass to get it, 5 miles of 17% grade with the trailer on taxed the dually's cooling system even at 40F... I was running like 25PSI boost the whole way up, 2nd gear.. I forgot I had an empty oil bottle by the coolant reservoir... Let me tell you how hot the turbo "cold side" discharge gets.. it gets hot enough to melt plastic!


I put a downpayment on a 1500 gasser first gen, XCSB 2wd, really nice shape.. I might put a 4BT into it, I think that would be a sweet little summer truck

well, the rad in my first gen packed it in on me, while waiting on another one I had to put the dually back on the road.. it had the stock VGT on it.. was was coming up to overspeeding it at just 30-35 PSI boost and it was running out of air pretty quick.. for shits and giggles i'm just swapping the cold side to the 67mm because I"m lazy and that's easy to do, and I'll see if that helps a lot.. goign to bump the timing a bit too, try and reduce my haze at idle

Stock VGT was driving nice though, didn't complain about making 15PSI at 1200 RPM though it was a bit smoky down there.. giving it an oil change as well  while I'm at it

I think I'm going to build this onto a 24V engine.. I just picked up some stainless Shied .120 24V p pump lines... they ought to do the trick

So I've driven the first gen a bit with the HE351CW... it's an AWESOME turbo.. spools nearly instantly, pushes 45PSI, and I'm getting considerably better fuel mileage than I was getting with the 60/64/12 HX35/40 hybrid..  I used the same billet compressor wheel in both, so it all comes down to the exhaust side
Buddy tried the 9cm from an HY35 which looks really similar, but it's not sounding like that's performing all that great, would be good for a truck with closer to stock fuel though.

Here's a little vid for the sound.. sure responsive
