Turbo?
« on: October 26 2016, 05:30:09 PM »
Does anyone know the difference between the PTE6466 compared to the Turbonetics 6466 or 6468?  I thought the wheels were basically the same but differences in housing? :hmm   Is the PTE worth the extra cost over the Turbonetics?

Well, I bought the Turbonetics 6468.  Looking forward to seeing what it will do!  I was thinking 6465 but the motor breathes really good and Jack suggested the 6468 would be better. :cool;

The 6466 is a legitimate 9 second turbo with matching mods and tuning. With it only being available in a DBB version, I passed on it. The cost was prohibitive. There was little track data for me to go on as well, as most haven't got the balls to max a turbo out.

Jack's been a Turbonetics dealer for years, and knows his shit. The 6468 is likely in the same ballpark as the 6466. Turbonetics turbos, from the reading I did on them years ago weren't a true DBB. One side was a BB...and the other was journal. As to their durability, if Jack is still selling them, then that should be a hint.

I thought the new ones were a true double ball bearing?  I know the old CPT-66 I had wasn't.  I will have to ask Jack about that.  Regardless, I've had no trouble with my old Turbonetics.  So I figure if it works, what the hell.  Jack said the 6468 is a 9 second turbo.  I guess we will see when I put it on how it performs!

I know of 2 different Jack's that will recommend turbonetic products over Precision.  Both will tell you that you're paying for a name on the precision.  I don't know enough to tell you anything.  That being said, I do have a Precision on my car.  Sometimes buying second hand means getting cool guy parts at a discount

The PTE 6466 was my original thought but Turbonetics has a superior warranty and from what I hear they are identical wheels with the exception of the housing.  And the Turbonetics isn't as expensive.  All bonuses!

I talked to Jack and you are correct the hot side is still journal.  He said they found that the ball bearings would coke up and fail much easier on the hot side.  I haven't had any issues with the CPT-66.

Is the 6468 larger than the cpt66?  sounds smaller to me but I wonder with all these designations

It has the new billet compressor and inconel wheel.  It should produce more power than the old 66.

And it has an anti-surge housing but not like the fancy round ports the PTE has.

I have a 66 that I bought from Jeremy years ago.  the first thing I noticed is that it did not surge like the turbo that was on the car.  It was almost undrivable.
