Anyone using a BANKS Sidewinder Turbo kit in a 6.2

I may be getting a Truck with a 6.2L and was wondering what kind of results you got adding this kit.

Re: Anyone using a BANKS Sidewinder Turbo kit in a 6.2

A friends dad has a 6.2 that he punched out to a 6.5 and is currently building. He got some banks turbo system for it but not sure on specific model. Turbo costs about $2,000 if that helps. That truck won't be together for a while though but gosh darn it, he's got one anyways sitting there....

Re: Anyone using a BANKS Sidewinder Turbo kit in a 6.2

<font face="Comic Sans MS">I don't know if this is possible, but you might want to look into snagging the turbo setup off of a 6.5L TD in a parts yard... Or even a dodge... It shouldn't be *too* specialized to not be fairly easily adaptable... Just have to make sure the thing is adjusted for fuel, etc... [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] The turbo is just a turbine that goes in the exhaust, a waste gate, and the compressor section anyhow, as well as some oil hookups... I'd theorize an adaptation of one wouldn't be *too* bad for somebody with good fab skills...</font>
