View Full Version : To all Turbo Guru's

I happen to get a turbo from a 3406C Cat engine that was rated a 325 hp. It came out of a 980 Wheel Loader, non-waste gated. I think that the 3406 is near the same displacment of the 855 ci Cummins. I was told the the HT3B that some people use is from the 855. I was thinking of using it in a twin set up on my truck. I can't tell who makes the turbo, it just says Cat on it. <br><br><br>Anyone have any thoughts on using this turbo?<br><br><br>Thanks<br><br>

I got a cat turbo too. don't know what it is too. I think a v12 cat but not sure. It is really big.

mac1, I don't have a turbo (except stock), but I wanted to comment on your hometown.

All my friends here (USAF adrenaline junkies) tell me that I need to go to Nanaimo, BC and check out &quot;Bungee Zone&quot;.

They say it's the best.

It's only a 10 hour drive from my house I believe. Maybe I'll take the Truck up there some day and jump off that there bridge... What do you think? Have you been there yet?

Just waving a hand at you there in BC.

Ya, the Bungee Zone is a great place to &quot;fall of a bridge&quot;. It is placed over a fairly narrow river. I have never jumped there but I know lots of people have. I think they have a web site, I'll check it out for you.

Here is the website: www.bungyzone.com/

Part number is 5s1245<br>serial # is jlr0765<br>model # is t1814<br>It is in pretty good shape. needs some paint. but there is not play in the turbo and it spins fine. Maybe I can use it for a twin or maybe sell it fore some money for a HX40 turbo.<br>Thanks<br>Aaron<br><br>P/S why is there not any CAT turbos out there that are on cummins pulling trucks I have never heard of them using them<br>I know the have used Garret turbos which I see is also on the label of my cat turbo.

Hey DodgeMan01 that turbo you have is a fairly old and rare creature. According to our parts guy it is from a mid 70's 16G Cat MotorGrader with a 343 Cat engine, inline 6. The 343 is a 800+ci displacment engine. You might check with a Cat dealership and see if they want to buy it.

Sense it is so old I don't think it will be worth too much, but did he say if it might be?<br>Thanks for the info.<br>DM01
