    Picked up a spare banks sidewinder turbo, and finally sent it off. Came back with a little different compressor wheel and a td06h center section. Adds some needed air to fuel. So far I like it.

    61-62mm can't remember the exact number stated.
    Turbocharger systems out of Oregon did the work.
    It is cheaper then a replacement from banks if one needs to be replaced.
    Pluses
    Bolts right in no difference in dimensions other then the bolts for the drain flange go from 8mm to 10mm.
    Parts for the td center section are more readily available then the te.
    Get a little grin when driving it, it makes boost very quickly once above 1500.
    negatives
    Maybe a little less boost below 1500. Only noticeable in double overdrive.
    A little louder when making boost.

    Sounds like about the same size wheel I've been putting in the TE's I found a good source for parts for them when they have them.
    Ive talked to those guys if I could charge their prices I could retire.
