Yes.

I have a 2.8 S400 on mine with 5 year old Hypermax stage1's. Daily driving is not a problem at all. Makes 30 to 41 psi depending on the tune. It spools realatively fast with the smallish injectors. The FFD injectors should speed up the needle movement a bit, but those are waiting untill I can get the BTS in.

EGTs are also very low, and no smoke when the turbo is up making boost.

What flavor of an S400SX are you talking about? An "off the shelf" unit? A custom unit? What inducer are you looking at? how about turbine wheel exducer? What turbine housing?

Yes there are several that have had an S400 mounted on a PSD and its my personal favorite due to all the options for getting exactly what you need and its relatively cost effective. My pulling truck had an s400 on it. In fact its the same turbo that Marc (Uncool) is currently trying out.
