Twins with my GT-42 or use it as a single???

I have a GT-42 and am looking at using it on my truck... its a 1.23 exhaust housing and i don't really want it to be too laggy for street driving... should I make it compound with another turbo or should I just use it with some B codes and get a good chip made. This is my daily but its a fully built engine, I already have an engine on a stand that I am building.

I want to have 600 rwhp when i turn it up.

as a single to make that much hp you're gonna have something that smokes a bit, prolly a lot...but in a compund kit you can prolly use it as ur big charger....then use a small drop in turbo as your lead charger...or small charger.... may smoke less and run cooler.

I'd say twins would be more streetable at that level.

But can't say from experience cause I can only dream about twins...

Re: Twins with my GT-42 or use it as a single???

I really don't care if it smokes... thats part of the fun of a diesel...

If i use it in a twin set up.... what kind of drop in do you think that I should go with...

TN drop in 1.0?

I was thinking about figuring something out with a turbo similar to the H2E, that way I can build it with whatever a/r housing that I want, i want to keep drive pressures as close to 1:1 as possible....

iirc that is what danny uses, and said it takes a bit to spool up..
but when it does , look out.....might be better off in a compound setup.

I think Danny was talking about his 45r. If I remember right, he's going back to a 42r.
Seems like you could pull it off, but compounds are the ultimate in driveability from what I understand
