Well I went ahead and bit the bullet ordered a kc300x stage 1 for my truck. In hopes of keeping everything cool and running smoothly in the future.

I'm really hoping that I made the right choice with the stage 1. I had read where some people had better results with the stage two buy only when they were towing and the truck was under a heavy load. I'm just curious if my lower gearing and weight would bump me into that category.

But I've pulled that trigger and we will see where it gets me.


I was also talking to my brother and I could always open up some beers take the super single off my dodge and fab up a jerry rigged compound on truck.
I could even use the mechanical fuel pump hole as an oil return.
Besides since the dodge became a property truck I dropped the sticks back to 5x012 and it could really use a 63mm sized charger now.

Oh, that's gonna be sweet! Can't wait to see how it goes after the install is done.

Have fun!

Minor inconveniences. ( I foresaw some of it but my brain decided to look the other way)

While the stock turbo's compressor side is gtp38 based along with the newer style flange. The exhaust downpipe flange is tp38 based.
Why does this matter? The stock down pipe won't let the new turbo drop in and work.....

TP38 sleeves the downpipe into the turbo exhaust flange.
GTP38 Sleeves the exhaust flange into the downpipe.

Without me being there, I'm not sure about my father crawling under truck to do it to swap out to the new downpipe I had ordered. He said he could swap the turbo and I was already worried somewhat about that.

I'm probably going to call him today and have him to take it to a shop local for the downpipe and just have them temporally clamp the 4" downpipe to the old turbo if he really wants to do the turbo.

I guess an expedient thing to do would be grind off the mating lip on the newer style if you couldn't replace your down pipe. You could also try to take a Dremel and cut off the lip on old style down pipe but that pipe is pretty hard and you'd be there for a minute . - For the skoolie people

Uploaded are photos of the GTP vs TP exhaust.

Damn, there's a wrinkle I hadn't anticipated. Never a dull moment, I suppose.

Thanks for the pictures, though. That will be super helpful to others who might be considering the same modifications.

I came home for this week. I've started the install of the KC300X stage 1 .84.

Everything is drop in except you have to order a 4" 90* elbow and as previously stated fab a down pipe.

I ended up Mig welding instead of Tig since I'm going to be covering it up with header wrap and I wasn't going to waste my time. I drove it with essentially a from axle dump and touched 1,300* once running though the gears (250hp setting). Once I get the muffler hooked back up I'll pressure test the system to check for leaks on the cold side then I'll start playing around with the other power settings.

I can however say the turbo spooled way faster than before even though it's inducer side is larger.

I gotta tell ya... That is one sexy beast! I'm surprised at how much you had to fab up on the downpipe, but I guess that's just what it is.

Can't wait to see it all finished up!

It was basically hitting the engine mounts or was hitting the transmission. The rail of the downpipe was also aiming up and forwards the cab.
