Compound Question

I had the opportunity to drive an 06' Common Rail with an S300/S400 compound turbo set-up on it this past weekend. Truck dynos right at 600hp in it's current stage. The chargers worked awesome on there, instant spool-up and no need for a pyrometer.

Knowing next to nothing about compound set-ups is there any reason those wouldn't work on a 7.3L? I would think that with a larger displacement engine they would work even better on the Powerstroke. But like I said, I don't know much, thats why I'm asking.

The S300 has mutliple set-up options (i.e inducer, comp wheel, turbine options) and the same goes for the S400. Either can be upgraded pretty easily to flow just about any amount of air. Plus the chargers are cheap in comparison to others on the market. I'm just curious is all.

7.3 injectors are like greeters at wal mart. They are there and they do there job, but you can't ask them to do anything quickly or they will get confused and give up.

Re: Compound Question

Id think that the chargers would need different/ bigger exhaust housings but other than that i dont know why they wouldnt work.

Re: Compound Question

Well, this is just my thoughts. You can get the S300 in a 62mm then put a t-4 flanged turbine housing, not sure of a/r though. As for the S400, I think you can get it in a modded version in a 80mm inducer and 1.32 turbine.

Not looking to build a big set of compounds for unlimited horsepower. But something for a good streetable daily driver, say 600hp.

Re: Compound Question

Don't believe the 42 is big enough, it's only 74mm.
