The POD's are in and WOW!! [yuk] [yuk] ;D<br>Now, about those EGT's............ <br>I am ordering a pump wrench from Piers to set the timing and that order will also include a new Turbo. <br>Al says I could go with the HX-35 OR the 40. <br>So here are the questions; <br>Who is running PDR Turbos? <br>Which one? <br>How is the 40 on the bottom end? <br>What do you use your truck for? <br>Your likes and dislikes about the Turbo you are running. <br><br>I use my rig primarily for towing and it sees some pretty good hills.<br><br>

NascarMark would be the man too talk to about comparing the 2 turbos. I believe he has switched out his PDRHX35 for a PDRHX40 after the increased fuel from his special injectors.

As I have run the 35 and 40 I'll post my findings here so everyone can see as I have had lots of PM's asking.<br><br> The PDR 40 is alittle slower on bottom end than the PDR HX35. Middle range I would have too give it to the 40 and top end the 40 is a clear winner. As far as temps go the 40 runs about the same at low boost, 70 deg cooler at mid boost and close to 100 deg at high boost. I haven't done any towing with the 40 but did alot with the 35 and loved it. <br><br>The 40 is even louder then the 35. It starts to whine right away. You got to love that sound. <br><br>Conclusion!! <br>If you want a mildly bombed truck stick with a 35 and if you want to go big, get the 40. <br>
