turbo pairing with the 6.0

so ive been throwing around turbo and injector options. I was going to ask the general consensus... what have you experienced with turbo diverter valves? As an aid to spool a single turbo? I have seen someone else post a diverter valve on a triple turbo setup i tihnk it was? i was going to see if it would be enough to help spool a 71 mm k/31 with some hefty sticks.

Re: turbo pairing with the 6.0

What are you wanting to do with the truck? Do you have supporting mods for your planned added power? Do you plan to tow? These are all questions that are going to be important to answer before you can get reasonable answers. Tadd is the triple that is running the diverter valve in the triple setup from Elite. You might want to contact them directly. Not many have ran them. I THINK Shawn might be running one now??????

Re: turbo pairing with the 6.0

It will stay my daily driver, but i want to make it a seldom puller and have fun at the strip. Yeah I am taking into consideration the supporting mods I need. Still throwing around injector/turbo combinations.

Re: turbo pairing with the 6.0

you can do that with injectors and a single turbo, you just have to be careful with turbo size as to not get too large if you still plan to tow the donzi..

Re: turbo pairing with the 6.0

I dont think the harley will meet the donzi much more. last trip really made me look hard at my stack. 2000-2500 rpm the whole time. after 2200 the drone just ROLLS on. hooray for 37's and 3.73s. thats why im getting rid of them and going back to a 35.

I was looking at a set of 275 elites that someone had used but i think that will be a bit too much fuel for a single. And from what I can tell, those injectors would need a RR and airdog/fass and hpods. I plan on doing the RR and fuel prep regardless. I wont be towing much beyond my 6x12 enclosed trailer since we got a 450 6.4 for the farm a few weeks ago.

anywho. I am slowly collecting parts at the right price. ive got my studs in hand, been browsing injectors and turbos like its my job. Whats the deal with the swap for a t4 style turbo? unless it is specific to mount to a 6.0, you have to have a pedestal correct? and adapter for the exhaust up pipe to the exhaust phlange of the turbo? both of which comibined are almost over 1,000 before cost of a turbo. is there an easier way of doing it with your own turbo?

Re: turbo pairing with the 6.0

66 seems to be the biggest anyone would want to run out of a single. any bigger and it will be laggy. I was real happy with my 62 and 190s and still towed with it. loud but sounded really good. 190s and a powermax makes around 550... you dont need to go overboard to make big power.

Re: turbo pairing with the 6.0

275's are to large for a daily driver same with the 66mm, not the best streetable even the 64mm takes some playing around to get it right.
