I am doing some learning here and was wondering. If you want to mod your turbo and install a larger compressor wheel do you just port the housing to take the new wheel? can someone here give a bit of direction about doing this?

I know if you go to a bigger inducer you will need to have the housing machined to match the wheel, if you go to a bigger exducer you will probably also need to have the back plate machined as well.

I've had 2 housings machined, prices aren't bad, I think I paid in the $60 range for each.

I wonder if a regular machine shop can do this or do i need a shop specializing in turbos to do this?

machine the compressor housing to have the matching profile of the new compressor wheel ..
with a smidge of clearance lol

you need a machine shop that specializes in turbos ...
or a particularly talented machinist..

I would buy a $200 balanced 46 trim T04E compressor and bolt it on rather than try and shove more through the Dodge turbo. You can send the center out to get balanced after your done with the mod for extra balancing. Not super common in the 4 banger TD world but it is hugely popular to by balanced compressors for the Cummins and simply bolt on and go.

These guys sell the compressor upgrade, $150 for a 50 trim and $200 for the 46 trim. If the turbo is a stock Garrett it is a better idea to add a 46 though.Killer T3T4 T04E Hybrid Turbo Performance turbocharger Brand New Best Available | eBay

I found out the work to do to up grade a turbo. I found a couple of shops that deal with just turbos. for a good amount of turbos $650-$850 will mod a turbo to its last nerve!!!LOL porting,polishing,bigger wheels, both hot and cold sides!

The problem is a new turbo, non BB cost that lol.

I don't know about going too much bigger but the mitsu turbo on the T1s needs the compressor wheel changed to the higher flowing type lol.

I'm doing a compressor upgrade to my Cummins this year. Going to either a 58mm or 60mm inducer and ported cover. Pre balanced and bolt on it cost $275, not bad. Upgrade Compressor Housing & Wheel combo (60mm inducer) for 1991.5-1994 Turbochargers
