    I dont have any experience with that particular turbo,but have read that they are good.A lot of the aftermarket turbos are re labled with a brand name of their own(not saying this one is) but the pics of the a team looks like a schwitzer in design(bad spelling i am sure) which have been in business for a very long time.I guess the a team flows more CFM at lower boost levels.I have yet to figure that one out,and will never start talking turbo theory on here again.Any idea on price?

    I understand your turbo therory ( from other post) and if i had a tach in my truck could easily prove it to any doubters. To change cfm output of the turbo, wouldnt ya just change impeller angle/pitch, and or housing design? I pulled apart my stock gm 3, and comapred to a newer turbo i got (think its from an aftermarket company [wont post name ], thats what im told didnt get original packaging, but it was like new when i got. Way beter mechanical condition that what i had) No id tag. But the inlet to the turbine housing is a bit different design, and the impeller appers to be a bit different but i never tore the turbine housing off. But i do know that this new turbo makes way more boost than my old one.

    For anyone wondering about getting the A team turbo, it is amazing. I have had it on my truck for about 2 months now and it is not even the same truck, it has so much more power, it is smoother, and lower EGT's. I can't say enough good about it or the guy who is building them.

    i've been doing research also. the A-Team turbo is based off of the greddy TD07 turbo. i have been looking into both, or an hx35 or hx40 with a tubomaster set to 16psi. but i also have even looked at the non WG hx35's and hx30's as an option as well.

    Majestic is a knowledgeable shop. I have talked with them regarding the GM-X series (and others over the years) and they have tried to modify them, but haven't had good results with mods at all on them. They did state to me that they (GM series) are well engineered units and quite efficient.
    There were also some customer reviews I had read on the ATT, but didn't find some of them to be overly supportive, but mostly positive; but each truck is different, and the demands drivers may be placing on them different as well. Best to research and see if any users of them are using their trucks in the same way as you do, and if their results sound like they would benefit you.
    No nation should owe a debt any greater than that which is owed to its veterans! Thank You Veterans!
