For maximum power and boost, there is just no substitute for The Aurora 5000 Turbo. The Aurora 5000 utilizes a five inch compressor intake and is capable of boost levels of over 60 PSI. This is the only single turbo production kit available that is capable of producing power levels of over 700 HP on diesel fuel alone while still allowing street manners. The Aurora 5000 turbo is not intended for heavy towing applications due to it's very large compressor - any towing should be done in lower gears such as 4th.
All Duramax applications are covered from 2001 to 2006. The 2004.5 and later LLY and LBZ GM Duramax engines were produced with a Garret variable turbo charger that has proven to be a very sluggish and inefficient "emissions regulated" turbo charger. The later variable geometry turbo charger suffers mainly due to its poor turbine design. As exhaust is pushed from the engine to the turbo charger's turbine housing, the exhaust energy is forced to make a 90 degree angle being directed into the turbine section of the turbo charger. This violent 90 Degree redirection of exhaust causes a pressure wave to form in the accelerating exhaust gas exiting the engine creating dangerous unwanted back pressure. High back pressure creates high exhaust gas temperatures! The stock variable Garett turbo design causes approximately 200 Degrees higher exhaust gas temperatures over a conventional turbine housing due to it's inefficient turbine design! The poor factory turbo charger design is the primary reason the 2004.5 and newer Duramax engine struggles with producing reliable power while maintaining reasonable EGTs. The ATS Aurora Turbo system corrects all of these problems and delivers unbelievable performance.
