Idle video. Turbo seems like it's going to spool in a hurry.

Got the exhaust built, I'll take it to the muffle shop in the morning and have him put a couple of hangers on it for me. Just a few more things to do and it's time for positive intake manifold pressure.

Looking good. I would have kept the 6.0 and efi, but either way it's a cool build.

Thanks. I really wanted to do the 6.0, but I had to get in a hurry as the engine that was in the truck was about to the end of it's service life and it seemed more practical to just do a 23degree engine since everything would fit and I could get it done in a hurry. This is my daily driver, so it couldn't take on "project " status.

I understand that. It always sucks when you start a build and the old engine starts letting go before you are ready.

Boosted the truck for the first time tonight. I have the secondaries unhooked at the moment because I like to tune out my primaries and power valve channel restrictors first and then jet the secondaries, but even on the tiny primaries, this thing rips. Video as soon as I can find someone with the nerve to ride in it with me under boost.

Going to try and get the secondaries hooked up and tuned out this weekend. That video was on the primaries only and 3 big boost leaks to help keep it at a reasonable level during the first tuning steps. I think it's going to be pretty fast for an old truck.

You will like a single 76-88mm more. I've done both and would only go with twins if I can't fit a big single.

I concur. The only real reason to do twins IMO is if you can't get the big single down pipe out of the engine compartment, well, that or if you just find a smokin deal on a set of twins or just like the look.

I've always wondered about why people do twins. On my Cummins I have the hx35 she spools up quick and I'm running 40 lbs. I mean what else could a twin do that this hx can't?

Well, nobody actually runs twin turbos on a Cummins. They run compound turbos. The small turbo spools quickly and gets you boosted and going fast, but then the big turbo takes off and gives you more boost at a lower temp than the smaller turbo would. They are a waste of time and money if you are not far from stock, but if you have a lot of mods it is a huge drivability improvement over a big single. Going to twins made my old pull truck go from something I towed to the track and that's it, to a truck that I actually wanted to drive daily.

There is a company that makes a supercharger over a big turbo, compound set up that is pretty impressive. It idles at about 10lbs will light a big turbo almost instantly. I was very impressed with the one I drove.
