1.0 Exhaust Housing

Hi guys,
I have a big project ahead of me next spring and I am curious what you guys think. Obviously with a bigger exhaust housing comes performance increases.

I have two options in mind.

1. BD-Power 1.0 A/R Turbine Housing, my money saver option.
BD-Power 1.0 A/R Turbine Housing 1047005

2. Garrett 1.0 A/R Wastegated Exhaust Housing
Riffraff Diesel: Garrett 1.0 A/R Wastegated Exhaust Housing

I just want to know if saving 50 bucks is going to worth it or go with the big name Garrett.

For the money, I'd get a van turbo with 1.15 exhaust housing. Rebuild and paint, then sell the stocker and you'll come out really good! The good folks on CL will give ya $400 if ya dont mind asking.

Check car-part.com for a van turbo near you. Usually find'em under $300...

I would go van turbo but thats not what I want my build to be. I want to have a stock compressor side and stock injectors. Im just trying to make make stock move a little bit fast than everyone else.

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.

So you spent money on a van turbo and outlet, selling your stock turbo, eventually selling your van turbo..... for a compressor wheel? I don't see how you made out on top.


Anyway. Does anyone else have an opinion besides a van turbo, an opinion on something in this post?

$50 may not be much to you, but a guy on a budget that matters, which is why I asked if saving 50 bucks is worth it with this option for my build.

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.

Not sure a 1.0 housing will add performance with stock sticks and stock tune (no tunes right?)

I'm toying with adding the 1.0 garrett housing when I upgrade sticks, but until then, the stock turbo 0.84 housing handles things pretty well - EGT stays inbounds.

You might trade some spoolup with a larger exhaust housing and no added fuel. Will that be ok?

I put on the ATS compressor housing to cure the surge I was having with tunes, and it seems to give enough air - about 27psi in 60e and just a little grey smoke (I think we're calling it haze).

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.

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?

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.

That's my turbo work before the tuner.

diehardstroker has a good reputation on FTE.diehardstroker has a good reputation on FTE.
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.

Exactly, I haven't heard or read any reviews on the BD housing. Why spend more money when you don't need to.

SO if anyone can clear up why the BD is or isn't a good idea that would be appreciated.
