So I bought a Cheetah turbo from a member on Monday, Came In Friday.
It's on the truck. Stupid loud whistle. I hope it performance's as good as it sounds. Video's to follow. Now I have to email rob and get some new tunes. Guess I should have done that last week. Hopefully it will go on the dyno this weekend.

I may have misunderstood, and I apologize if so, but weren't these having reliability issues? I thought there were some problems with the Cheetahs that I read about on here awhile back. Maybe those issues have since been resolved.

Sounds good though. Hope it works well for ya.

So this is the 68mm cheetah, I have been looking at the cheetah turbos and would love to get more feedback on yours. How it spools, egts, max boost? I cant decide if I want the baby cheetah or the one you have.

I'll give my full review once I get the right tuning for the turbo. I also have a fuel issue, I need to figure out as well.

Yep, sounds like a Cheetah! Mike had one on his LMM a couple years ago and it lasted for about 5 hours before the bearings failed. Im more of a big power non VVT guy myself but you got to love the sound of a Cheetah.

The old cheetahs had issues and now apparently it is no longer an issue. Not sure what it was.

What Newly said might have been something I read on here before. I tend to come and go here when I get the jones for a Dmax so not always in the loop:D

I've thought about one on my Dodge with Fleece's controller. If they're holding up, might be back on the list.

I never get tired of hearing mine whistle and haven't had any issues with it. EGT's get a lil high while towing but otherwise I love it
