I want to build a truck that will make between 575 and 625 at the wheels without having to milk any of the parts I will be using. I do not tow with my truck, or do anything strenuous that would affect my build. I have come to the conclusion that I would prefer a non-vgt turbo, and I want to avoid compounds.

My question is, what turbo, what size injectors, and whose tuning?

I know that I'll need to obvious ADII, RR kit, tranny, etc. Are there any things I may be over looking that can come up as unexpected costs?

Thanks a lot guys.

66mm turbo with 205/100s and IDP's tuning I would think would get you in the ball park.

I would be very shocked if this setup wasnt in that range, and by not in that range I mean under. It very well may be more than 600hp. I dont know.

Feels like every last hoof of 600 rwhp

Yes but if you don't use n02 I would use a .88 a/r

Yea I would agree Matt. Your .91 housing would be just a little too big for my taste man and I would do something smaller but I would also keep it divided too. JMO.

yeah i was just checking on what i posted and i dont see where they make a .88 divided only open. a divided .91 might spool as quick as a open .88?? idk

the divided .91 is going to spool better than the open .88 BTW

youre going to need 205s, doubtful 190's will make it on a single, but it may be possible, 66mm turbo, fuel system and a built trans.. should be around 600

i can clear up 205's though so if you want the most power up top and be abile to burn all the fuel in a race tune yull need a larger housing to get the flow yull need.jmo

Correct me if I'm wrong here Greg but wouldnt it be best to go with a relatively tight divided T4 housing with divided up pipes?? I know the back/drive pressures might get a little high at high boost levels but the spool up time would be better.

That probably is true. To keep the back pressures in check for high boost levels. I just dont know where the happy medium would be at is.

With divided uppipes the .91 divided housing should spool pretty well. I might also add a ported intake. Maybe even a cam. I've had very good results with our race cam as far as egt's and spool up go. But never done just a cam swap.

after driving mine and i dont even have up pipes and still have some exhaust leaks and boost leaks, i belive the idea of having tight housings on the 6.0 is a meth. i think cp's wuold get way higher than my liking

Can someone explain the decimal number you all are talking about? The .88 and the .91? And the spilt, and opened housing?

Thanks guys.

The question is, which turbo? RCD? Elite?

borg warner turbo and were talking the size of the turbine housing and weather the inlet to the turbine is open or divided
