Industrial Injection is no stranger to high performance diesel trucks, but a big focus this year is getting everyday drivers a boost in performance without sacrificing the factory emissions. With their years of turbocharger knowledge, they have applied it to modified stock turbos and created their own line. XR1 Series turbos were born.
The XR Series turbochargers are all similar to stock units with the exception of upgraded internals and slightly larger Billet Blade Technology compressor wheels. What these upgrades offer are a longer lifespan, better performance, and a better look under the hood. With the Billet Blade Technology wheels on board, you’re experiencing increased turbo efficiency which lowers EGT’s while adding strength and reliability.
Worried the XR Series isn’t available for your ride? Don’t be. Industrial’s XR Series turbos cover virtually everything. 1994-1997 7.3-Liter, 2003-2007 6.0-Liter, 2008-2018 6.4-Liter, and 6.7-Liter Power Strokes are all covered.
GM truck? No problem. 2001-2017 GMC and Chevrolet trucks are covered. LB7, LLY, LBZ, LMM, and LML are all eligible for upgraded XR Series units. For instance, for the 2004.5-2010 LLY/LBZ/LMM trucks, the XR units come with a 61-MM compressor wheel for that increased efficiency and like all of the other turbos in this line, polished compressor housings are available.
Cummins-powered truck? The same thing, we’re pleased to announce 1998.5-2018 trucks are all covered, too. We’re going to highlight the unit for 2013-2018’s. The XR series is a HE351VGT that comes with the same Billet Blade Tech as mentioned before. They feature an upgraded 63-MM compressor wheel and a manufacturer guarantee. Because of the high failure rate of Holset Reman Turbos, Industrial is proud to use only 100-percent brand new units from Holset.
6.4-Liter Power Strokes
As you may know, the 6.4-Liter Power Stroke trucks are equipped from the factory with a set of compound turbos. This isn’t an exception for the XR series as these compounds are offered here, too. Depending on what you’re expecting out of your 6.4, there are two different turbo configuration options. The first of two drop in kits is a 64.5-MM billet atmosphere charger feeding a 52-MM high pressure charger. This kit will support up to 600-horsepower.
For those of you that are wanting a stock replacement, drop-in style unit but are looking for a little more in the future, the next kit is probably for you. Supporting up to 750-horsepower, this XR Series kit is configured with a larger 71-MM low-pressure turbo feeding a 58-MM high-pressure turbo. Both kits, despite the configuration, will lower EGT’s significantly and improve your driving experience. Like the other turbos in this series, you can have the covers of each turbo polished for $300.
If you aren’t looking to build a super modified pickup truck, and just want a near stock but fun truck, these XR Series turbos are for you. They are an enough of an upgrade that you aren’t putting any of the driveline in harm, but enough power that it was made worth it for the added EGT drops and power increases. For more information about all of the XR series turbochargers, be sure and check out the Industrial Injection website here.
Stay tuned to Diesel Army as we dive deeper into this turbo series and do some testing on a few of these trucks to see what they are made of.
