Looks like a Holset, HX35 maybe? Dunno. Hard to tell, most Holsets have "Holset" stamped on the compressor. But their ID tags are similar.

IHI BorgWarner GM-8 from a 6.5L diesel chevy pick-up.

Mmmmmm boost is fun
OMG WHY?!?!?

By the time you have full spool you will have to shift, and spool again!



Good luck.

yup its a large diesel engine which mean it will flow a shit load of air. its not about what psi your running its how much air you can flow. it should spool 12 psi anywhere between 3500rpm and 4000rpm, yea a little laggy but damn its gunna make some good power.

400hp+ here i come.
