If this is a stupid question, feel free to bash me, but which would be better? I don't race per se, but I do like to mash the skinny pedal every once in a while. I tow around 10,000 pounds about once a week so it has to work for that. Basically I want something that is gonna spool fast and give me more power. Don't worry, tranny is gonna be built before hand.

I am thinking of Danville Billet 4094 or 68mm Cheetah.

Thanks

Sub'd. Can't wait to see some opinions. I've read about this till my eyes bleed and still couldn't pick.

It seems like there is no clear cut, black and white answer.

Subscribing. Def need something that will be good for towing. I know twins would fit the bill, but more interested in a single budget wise

The 4094s do not spool as well as the modded stockers, which makes them harder to tune. They have a weaker turbine wheel that is prone to melting (could have just been the earlier models), and they do not support as much HP as the modded stockers. But those are just my observations...

I liked the 4094. It spooled quick, was real easy to tune and made tons of power. I didn't even push it to its limits and I was up around 650 on a stock pump and 40% tips. I never towed anything with it but the turbo brake is ALOT weaker than the stocker. I feel its due to the different vanes and exhaust turbine. That was the only bad thing I could find about it. Its a really good turbo for the money.

Define modified stocker....

Isn't a 4094 a modified stocker?

I find it amusing that people say definitely one way or another without any experience or first hand knowledge. My recommendation would be to call up some turbo guys like Scott at SDP, Mark, or many of our vendors who do a lot of work with turbos. Look for concrete reasons why one is better then another and not just one spools faster. IMO, spools faster will depend on your tuning a lot.

I'm sure Mark, Scott, Henry, Rob, Nick, Dustin or many of those guys could give you specifics which they like better and why. Additionally Scott, Nathan, Trent, or any of those guys could let you know about using one in a compound turbo setup later on.

Edit...

Looks like Dustin has offered some insight already. If you are going with a compound setup the 4094 may be a better choice for you.

I had the 4094 and loved it. With good tuning it spooled like stock.
