Whats a good twin set up for the good old 97 7.3?
I'd like to sled pull someday with it. But mainly I just want it for the power. As much as I can get out of it. Maybe 700-1000hp.Stocker equal boom. go with like a 38R. What are you going to do with the truck? Why do you want twins? What is your HP goal?
You dont live to far from where I am from. Naperville here.
So your saying combine a 38 and a 47? i don't know a whole lot about turbos.if you are starting from scratch, and are going to fabricate things yourself, i would too go with one of the s300 framed turbo. Easy/cheaper to rebuild and the extended tip stuff is nice also. Plus there is a big selection of turbine and compressor wheels and housings to get you dialed in.
The reason i went with a 38r, is i already had one and also bb turbos are pretty durable. Also, i machined a 115 housing for it to accept an external wasategate, so i can slow it down or speed it up depending where i want to be as far as boost and drive are concerned. It doesnt go thru near the abuse it did as a single, as the 47 carries the bulk of the load in my setup.
The 47 is just a darn good all around turbo and spools quick for as big as it is. I do beleive if you wanted to keep less drive than boost up to 80+ psi you might select something different, as from my understanding a 47 doesnt breath on the exhaust side quite as well as a lot of 80mm+ turbos.
