    oldyeller, what is a greddy? I personally heard it was loosely designed around a Mitsubishi turbo.

    To my knowlege, there is only one seller of these: Walking J designs. he is not the designer, but he is the seller.

    I have heard nothing but good as well about them, much more CFM at lower PSI, and lower EGT.

    Default ...the problem with...

    ...exotic engine parts IS that they are exotic engine parts...you put those parts on a vehicle you don't depend on taking you to work or the kids'school play in other words a toy...once you modify,change,or dance in the dark of the moon over the turbo mount flange,if you don't have a spare just sitting around then when it go boom you are hosed...if you have an up-rated version of a factory mount,then all u have to do is find{or put back on}the one you took off...I always laff at all these wild looking trailer queen sleds with their chrome oil lines and special doo-dads,don't get me wrong I like to look at them,but I wouldn't ride one from here to austin...cause when your exotic part breaks{and it will} you are afoot usually a long way from home...soory about the rant ..I'll get off the soap box now and give someone else a chance...jd

    Mitsubishi manufactures the TD07, Greddy modifies them (ie: TD67, a TD07 compressor with a TD06 impeller) and builds them up for street racing use. It is my impression that the TD07 is primarily used for Mazda R7's, Toyota Supras, etc for high (500+) HP racing apps. IMHO I would think that that would be too small of a turbo for a 6.5, as I recall the turbo on my '84 Subaru turbo 4WD wagon was about half the size of the GM-4.

    Husker, what you are saying makes perfect sense, but this turbo does not look like it's a small unit. It actually looks to be every bit the size of a GM series if not a slight bit larger.

    the td07 is actually a bit bigger than the gm-x series turbo's with a slightly larger compresser housing, the ATT has a bigger compressor and exhaust housing, and is actually a really great deal for these 6.5's. . . not many mechanical ones like mine have the ATT though, my buddy has ordered one for his 93 like mine so we'll see

    Hey, keep us updated on how that works out for him!
    As I had mentioned previously, reviews by owners were mostly positive, only one or two which weren't impressive; but one was while towing (if I remember correctly) and since every situation may be different it could have been issue with those individual trucks and not how the turbo works.

    The only negative I have read about the A-team was a slightly slower spool up time from a standing start.
    Once it does start to pump the air though it is supposed to way outperform the GM X series.

    From a very credible source:

    "Robert, thank you first, yes there has been two years of actual use before the turbo was put on the market and there are A-Team Turbos out there with over 40000 plus hard miles on them. The turbo was designed off a Mitsubishi TDO7 of which there are a few different models. The A-Team Turbo departed from the original Mitsubishi in a few different aspect to make it more suited to the 6.5 and 6.2 GM diesel. The turbo is a direct bolt on with 2 minor modifications that are reversible if required. The turbo is built to heavy equipment specifications not light duty use like some turbos.

    I have personally used the A-Team Turbo on my daily driver and the same truck I take on long over the road trips. People that own an A-Team Turbo generally see a fuel mileage increase of 1 to 3 miles to the gallon. I have joined your site and will be glad to answer any questions you may have. There are numerous owners and I suggest that you contact one of those individuals to ask them what they think of there turbo and the workmanship associated with the product. One note there are A-Team Turbos in the US, Norway, New Caledonia, Finland and Canada, just to name a few. Please contact me at A-TeamTurbo@Hotmail.com if you have questions. Walking J Designs is currently the sole distributor of the product other than myself the owner of A-Team Turbo."

    additionally confirmed was the fact that the design was based off of a heavy equipment turbo.

    OK guys finally got clearance to post here. I am the owner of A-Team Turbo. The turbo is a great addition to our truck. This turbo was not put together and then sold it was built and run for two years by two people to work out all of the bugs that might arise. I hate time alone on the road, did enough of that in my younger days and not happy with that kind of free time at this stage of my life. So durability was my first concern then serviceability, performance.
