Default Turbo LQ9 Silverado

Just dropped a LQ9 in my Silverado in place of the 4.8... also had Dan Swartz add a custom tune for the pcm and trans. I have aquired a T4 turbo setup for it. Its off Ebay but whatever. Anyways the turbos blown up and I was curious if anyone was running a turbo LQ9 here and what turbo your running? And does anyone in here have one for sale? Not trying to spend a ton but we will see. I know the LQ9 isnt the best for boost due to the higher compression but fukc it.

Ive read that article more than once. Simply amazing what these motors can do and then in the end to find out it was a 4.8 and not a 5.3 like they thought all along!!!

Thanks Chad, its done a lot of hard work. Probably more than half the diesels in oakland county. Right now i've got maybe a couple hundred bucks. I got it cheap off my cousin. He had it in his 79 trans am for maybe 1500 miles and is selling the car. I have to get a new turbo and some manifolds. I will also have to get bigger injectors and have @Dannn retune the computer again when I do it. After that ill have to start saving for a 4L80E swap. My 4L60E is holding up okay right now but I know it wont last even it is slightly built and only a year old.

Another thing im worried about is the wastegate being under the truck and this truck does see off road. How well are those two going to mix?
