It's an awesome idea. Did one a few years ago but 5.3. Thing made 180ish to the wheels stock. High threes when we're done. Guy wanted to be able to pull his camper a little easier. I think we made 5 or 6# with some 58's. It was awhile ago.
I've got a Hotside kit for a single. http://www.jardineheaders.com/#!headers/l0ybk
subscribing. Got an 05 lq4 3/4 ton myself. Would like to one day but a smaller borg on it. I agree with the 50-75 mph thing. Its fine from stops when hauling the car and normal driving. But would like a little more ass when I need to merge onto the highway or pass someone
Planning on putting a Master Power GT45 76mm on my sons 01 1500hd 2wd. It had 250,000 miles on the 6.0 and a noisy lifter, so we freshen a 5.3 we had with 799 heads and LJMS Stage 2 truck cam. That turbo made 19# and went 138mph on his 3500# car. Spooled really quick. A S366 Borg would be pretty small on a 6.0, S475 96/1.32 would be a little laggy I think. One of the 87mm turbine Borg S400's would work well, as would anything based on a Garrett gt42-45.
I would recommend that you do an air to air intercooler and you will need to have the vehicle retuned for the added performance. We have recommended in the past a single 6766 with a T4 .96 A/R turbine housing for applications just like yours. If you would like a full spec I would recommend you call into the office and an associate could get you setup with virtually all the hard components you need (Wastegate, Intercooler, Turbocharger, Blow off valve, Injectors etc).
We completely understand, we do offer a lot of complimentary components if you do decide to go with our line of products. In your case it will more than likely be best to set your wastegate via spring pressure and forget about it.
Take a look at page 7 on this manual and it will show you how to set it up in a mechanical sense.
They did the classic bait and switch......kinda. Everyone thought the big news was the new full color digital dash. Well Thursday morning I get a Dealer Tech Bulletin about a new controller. It didn't give a lot of details but I made a bee line for the Haltech booth
WOW!!! They have not released...
There's been some interest in this in a few other threads and in PMs, so I'll ramble on a bit about it here. Any questions, comments, advice, ridicule, etc, are always welcome. :)
This is the same concept applied to diesel motors, and different from twin turbo, sequential turbos, etc. Diesels...
Looking for an idea on what size cells you guys are running . First ever methanol turbo build running front mount tank sbc single turbo mechanic fuel pump HolleyEFI drive to the lanes 1/4mile Racing mostly is 3 gallons enough?
Just ordered a new set of heads for my setup and swapping over from hydraulic to a solid setup with T&D shaft rockers.. Was going to get a set of Black Mambas, but they don't make them in .875.. What would be a good lifter for a high rpm, twin turbo setup? What are you guys using?
