A 1.0 housing isnt gonna do much for ya there... At best it'll reduce drive pressure a little and help surge.
I ran the van turbo and stock sticks in my X. It was a very good combo that towed a 12k lb Toy Hauler like a boss and laid down 324hp on the dyno. The rebuilt van turbo was $400, outlet adapter $100 and $10 for the VHT paint. I sold my +300k mile stocker for $175 (to a friend) and later sold the van turbo for $400 needing a compressor wheel.
Since ya seemed concerned about $50 - I thought I'd share some numbers with you.
I have no experience with either of the housings .
If I remember correctly Jason sold his van turbo and went with the bigger S366 T4 style turbo. He just said that the van turbo needed a new wheel when he sold it.
03 F250 CC Lariat 4X4
2.5" leveling kit, F-350 rear blocks, Remote start, AFE II, 4" turbo back, Riffraff wheel, HFO, T-5 hpop, FRx, HPx, 50 cent mod, CCV mod, Hutch, Harpoon, 20" Diamos wrapped in 305 NITTOS, Stage 1.5 30% Single shot, Hydra with tunes from Gearhead.
Sure, a van turbo is a better option for stock sticks but thats not why I posted this.... Im looking to run a stock turbo and stock sticks, so Im looking for a better option on exhaust housings for this turbo.
Im just trying to make this turbo perform the best that it can.
My plan is to eventually get Beans tunes, But that chip will come shortly after my exhaust work. Some fuel mods will follow the chip. So I have a plan to counteract those performance losses running no tunes for a short period of time.
But yes it is okay to have some minor spool up loss until I finish my build.
Im really just looking for which of those housings are better. I mean they are identical, does it just come down to price or is there something that will have a huge effect in the long run?
Riffraff's ported housing wheel may go along way to adding the needed air bigger sticks need, but might also help clear up the haze with the stock sticks.
That housing actually did wonders for my buddy, Diehardstroker, that was his first mod after his tuner. Im actually shooting for the Riffraff 6/6 wheel, the housing, and a high flow outlet, and a bighead wastegate.
a lot of these housings are personal taste, some want more top end which would get the job done with a 1.15. some love the stocker, with super quick spool but runs out at of oomphh about 2500 rpms, for me personally and from what Dylan (DHamSTER) and I have talked about, the 1.0 is a good option for middle ground, sure it wouldnt spool like the .84 but itd spool better than the 1.15 while still giving you a better top end than the .84, and slightly less top end then the 1.15. so youve got the best of both worlds.
Again IMHO it really depends on what the owner wants. Im also curious if anyone has anything bad to say about the BD housing as sometime in the future (after i get my transmission sorted out) id like to get a 1.0 housing.
