Introducing the FIRST ball bearing turbo for the 6.5L!!!
The Hurricane 2 GM8 Ball Bearing Turbocharger
Stock and replacement turbos (including the HX35) are manufactured with a journal bearing. This is the basic, low quality bearing that other turbo manufacturers use. When we set out to develop the Hurricane 2, we wanted a ball bearing design that is of high quality. The ceramic ball bearing we use comes from Germany, and is of very high quality. Ball bearing turbos spool much faster because there is less drag or resistance to the spinning of the turbo assembly.
We combined our ball bearing design with the high performance Wicked Wheel 2 billet compressor wheel, the Heath Diesel Turbo-Master wastegate controller, and a 360* thrust bearing for durability. The results? The fastest spooling and most responsive 6.5L turbo yet!!!
- Increased Horsepower
- Increased Boost
- Greatly Improved Throttle Response
- Lower EGT's
- Lower Drive Pressure*
*Drive pressure is the exhaust pressure that is produced when you have a load on the engine. This has always been a concern with the 6.5L. Adding a more efficient turbo, such as the Hurricane 2, can help in this area.
For convenience, the Hurricane 2 is custom made with an EGT port in the base of the turbo for easy installation of an EGT probe. (The most accurate place for measuring Exhaust Gas Temps!)
Comes with 1 year warranty.
The Hurricane 2's best performance is utilized by Heath Diesel's ECU computer tuning (50HP Tow tune or 80HP Performance tune) to help maximize fuel tables and boost control. However, this Turbo can be installed without it.
