turbo turbo turbos so many options?!?!?!?

well i been researching and reading on old forums. i am just not shure what will be the best route for me to go. i been reading on building your own twin set up....geez their is so many combos you can build and it could take a while to set up one right. then there is a single turbo set up another option with multiple possibilities. i have no ideal what i want or need. i could spend alot of money and time on twins or get a good single set up. well in my sig. is what i got, i want a set up that will spool up fairly quick and keep my egts down. i would like to build a twin setup but there is so many choices. i would like the most cost effective one but cant decide which one would work out. i am also interested in like the super b but am not shure if it would provide enough air to support my fuel. i use this truck for regular driving some towing and racing. i need some help...been thinking on this for a while but its turning out not to be a easy decision. thanks in advance.

A reg Super B won't be enough to keep you cool. You could get their twins and should be sufficient. You could also try the Super B Special. That won't have the real fast spool up that you want though. If you want cheap twins, run the stock turbo with something like a K31, or an S475. The former is a bit smaller, and wastegated, making tuning a little more complex, but you will have better control. Most S400 turbos are freefloat housings, no wastegate. You won't be able to dial it in as well as you could with a wastegate, but will still work very well.

thats what i was thinking the super b would be too small. been reading that the super b special it is ment for like mild sled pulling that really works best at wot. so thats why i been looking in to building my own twins with keeping my hy 35 or using a hx 40 for the small turbo in the set up. been seeing the s475 in forums but have no idear about it. but im thinking it would be simplier just to get like a phatshaft 62 or 64, not quite shure which one. i guess ill call them tomorrow.

You can run a 62/71/14 with your fueling.

The Super B Special is a 64/71 turbo. 62mm turbos are a good daily driver turbo. I don't have any towing experience, so I'll leave that to someone else. Twins are hard to beat, but the 62mm perform very well, and are reasonably priced. Most bolt on twins would be in the 3-4k area. You could build them for less than $1k depending on the deals you find. But downtime and lack of tooling can be issues when making your own.

Not to hijack this thread, but rather to help out psd_tuner and me.... What parts do you need to build a twins setup with an S475 and an HX? Hot pipe, cold pipe, vband clamps, oil line... things like that. What all is included? Been looking at building my own twins, but don't know what parts I need. TIA

Another Turbo Q?

My 99 auto is running an Edge w/ attitude, 75 hp injectors, 4" exhaust, k-n air, ats manifold and intake, is the stock turbo sufficient to tow or should I upgrade and to what, in other words best turbo for the money. Thanks

drp23, I would atleast look into a HX35/40 hybrid. that would give you a bit more air for a bit less cost then a full upgrade new turbo.
On the other hand IMO a BD super B would prob do real good with your current fueling.

Thanks for the post, super B would be sufficient? Don't need the Special? What is a good deal for a Super B?

Sick psd! Im jealous

DRP, with your 75 hp sticks and the juice I think the super B would work great IMO.

IMO if you went with the 'super B special' youd need bigger sticks, 150's I'd say.

Im running the J/A and my Hybrid (60/58/12) handles it just fine, towing and racing.
Add in your 75 hp sticks with a 57/65/14 super B, and youll be movin alot more air through to handle the fuel from the sticks.
JMO, but I think a super B would do ya good.
